Presented by Andrew Kay
Triple Grammy Award winning global gospel superstars spreading joy and lifting spirits since 2002.
Hope is an all-new concert by three-time Grammy®-winning Soweto Gospel Choir; celebrating songs and anthems from the freedom movement of Nelson Mandela’s South Africa, back to the Civil Rights Movement of Martin Luther King’s 1950s America.
Hope opens with a rousing program of South African freedom songs, before the repertoire echoes down through time to the USA, with beautiful renditions of the protest music of the Civil Rights Movement, including works by legendary artists James Brown, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and the one-and-only Aretha Franklin.
Formed to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African Gospel music, Soweto Gospel Choir draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto. The choir is dedicated to sharing the joy of faith through music with audiences around the world and has received critical acclaim and audience adoration for their powerful renditions of African-American spirituals, gospel and folk music.
Hope is a concert that will sing forever in your hearts!
