Soweto Gospel Choir – Hope
Sat 18 Mar @ 2:00 pm
Hope is an all-new concert by 3-time Grammy®-winning Soweto Gospel Choir – celebrating the music of protest and freedom; from Mandela’s South Africa, back to the Civil Rights Movement of Martin Luther King’s 1950’s America.
Opening with a rousing program of South African freedom songs, Hope then echoes down through time to the USA, with beautiful renditions of the protest music of the Civil Rights Movement, including works by legendary artists James Brown, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and the one-and-only Aretha Franklin.
Formed over 20 years ago to celebrate the inspirational power of African Gospel music, Soweto Gospel Choir draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto.
Hope is a concert that will sing in your heart forever!
