LBC Presents Soweto Gospel Choir
Out of the darkness comes a new dawn. In their HOPE concert, which commemorates and remembers South Africa’s freedom movement and the civil rights movement in the US, three-time Grammy Award®-winning Soweto Gospel Choir brings joy and inspiration to all. Expect an unforgettable performance, starting with some of the South African freedom songs that inspired their Rainbow Nation then moving to beautiful and heartfelt renditions of the music of the civil rights movement, featuring works by legendary artists like Billy Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, and the one-and-only Aretha Franklin.
Hailing from Soweto (South West Township), a town outside of Johannesburg and home of Nelson Mandela and South Africa’s democratic movement, Soweto Gospel Choir continues to inspire audiences around the world with their powerful blend of African gospel, freedom songs and international classics
