Soweto Gospel Choir took out the win for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album. The choir will perform songs from the winning album Freedom in Australia for the first time. Freedom is a celebration and commemoration of South Africa’s democratic movement's struggle for freedom.
Hailing from Soweto, a town outside of Johannesburg and home of Nelson Mandela, Soweto Gospel Choir continues to inspire audiences around the world with their powerful blend of African gospel, freedom songs, and international classics.
Comprising of a line-up of South Africa’s best vocalists, these uplifting performers have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music including U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Josh Groban.
In this uplifting and joyous repertoire, the choir will perform a rousing program of freedom songs celebrating the life of the father of their Rainbow Nation, Nelson Mandela as well as international gospel classics including a spine-tingling take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and an extraordinary rendition of “Amazing Grace”, which has had over 15 million views on YouTube.
