STG Presents Soweto Gospel Choir at The Paramount Theatre on October 19, 2018.
The spectacular and colorful two-time Grammy® Award-winning SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR returns to North America in 2018 with Songs of the Free, a very special program celebrating the centenary of the birth of the father of their rainbow nation, Nelson Mandela. Songs of the Free will include South African classics as well as freedom songs and gospel music much loved by Mandela, for whom the Soweto Gospel Choir had the privilege of performing in front of multiple times during his life.
Direct from South Africa, Soweto Gospel Choir is an awe-inspiring 20-member ensemble that thrills audiences worldwide with their stunning blend of African gospel music, spirituals and American popular music. Earthy rhythms and rich harmonies sung in six of South Africa’s 11 official languages are combined for a moving performance which uplifts the soul through the music and dance of South Africa.
“Nothing can really prepare you for the riot of exuberance and depth of emotion.”
- The Scotsman
“...Hailing from the township that was at the heart of South Africa’s
long struggle against apartheid, this choir has the spirit of gospel deep in its blood – and it shows.”
- The Washington Post
