Following their most recent Grammy award for Freedom (Best World Music Album), this celebrated choir invites you to enjoy the incomparable and inspirational power of African Gospel music in a collection of NZ shows spanning from Auckland to Dunedin.
Comprised of 18 of the best artists in South Africa, these uplifting performers have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music including Leonard Cohen, U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé, Ben Harper, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Josh Groban.
Along with their traditional South African anthems, the choir will perform their famous renditions of Amazing Grace, Hallelujah, and Freedom Songs Medley.
