“Soweto Gospel Choir is wonderful! You have never seen or heard such infectious joy – guaranteed!!” – Brian May, Queen.

Grammy Award winning, Soweto Gospel Choir will return to North America in January, 2014 for an 11 week national tour with its show ‘Divine’, celebrating 10 years! Soweto Gospel Choir will perform at the Sony Centre for One Night ONLY!

Over the last 10 years the Grammy and Emmy Award Winning Soweto Gospel Choir has brought joy into the lives of audiences all over the world. They have collaborated, recorded and performed with artists including Bono and U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Peter Gabriel, Josh Grobin as well as Andre Rieu. They have performed in front of President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and of course their spiritual fathers, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

It all started in Australia in 2003 with their first ever ticketed performance in Melbourne. It has been an incredible journey from the streets of Soweto to the World’s most prestigious venues. Since that day, Soweto Gospel Choir has gone from completely unknown to being heralded around the world as one of the great vocal ensembles. Along the way they have won 2 Grammys, an Emmy and an Oscar nomination and have just released their 6th album ‘Divine Decade’. Soweto Gospel Choir is thrilled to be coming back to North America 10 years on.
