Vibrant and inspirational, the three-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir from South Africa returns to the Forbes Center to sing, dance and drum in this tour-de-force performance! “The vivacious mix of peerless voices and high-energy dance is fun, glamorous, dignified and deeply enriching.” (Nottingham Post) In this concert of hope and joy featuring music of South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the American Civil Rights Movement, the Soweto Gospel Choir will perform African gospel, spirituals and freedom songs by artists and activists including Aretha Franklin, Mahlia Jackson, Harry Belafonte, and more. Soweto Gospel Choir has collaborated with music titans including Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and Stevie Wonder. It has performed for dignitaries such as Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Presidents Clinton and Obama, and members of the British royal family. “A slice of musical heaven,” (Australian Stage) Soweto Gospel Choir has transformed audiences of all ages across the globe. Don’t miss your chance to see them live!
