WINNERS OF THE 2019 GRAMMY AWARD
FOR BEST WORLD MUSIC ALBUM (FREEDOM),
SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR NOW BRING THEIR GRAMMY WINNING
FREEDOM TOUR TO EUROPE.
Sorry! You missed this event!
The SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR will tour Europe with their Freedom tour in honor of the father of their rainbow nation, Nelson Mandela, and South Africa’s struggle for freedom. On the back of their most recent 3rd Grammy award for Freedom (Best World Music Album) this celebrated choir brings joy and jubilation to venues across Europe from October 2022.
The three-time Grammy Award-winning SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR has been spreading sheer joy to audiences across the globe for nearly two decades! Comprised of the best artists in South Africa, the choir invites you to enjoy the incomparable and inspirational power of African Gospel music. These uplifting performers have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music including U2, the late Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Josh Groban. For the first half of this concert, the choir will perform “Songs of the Free,” a rousing program celebrating Nelson Mandela. Following that, the performers will share international gospel classics including their hair-raising take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Just try to stay in your seat!
“The SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR members are thrilled to tour Europe after so many years of absence” producer Andrew Kay said. “The group continues to inspire fans worldwide, but the reaction we get from audiences in Europe is unforgettable. We hope that our uplifting message of hope, faith, and joy reaches audiences new and old on this special return visit as we celebrate the legacy of the great Nelson Mandela.”
Filling the stage with vibrant costumes, incredible vocals and uplifting songs, SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR is 90 minutes of indisputable bliss, leaving audiences exhilarated as they dance in the aisles. The dynamic choir performs both traditional and contemporary music, adding its unique feel and interpretation to both. The choir performs in six of South Africa's eleven official languages with rich harmonies and earthy rhythms.
