A joyful Valentine's Day concert, dedicated to the memory of Nelson Mandela.
Over the last 10 years, 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 Chili Peppers, Peter Gabriel, Josh Groban, and Andre Rieu. They have performed in front of President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and their spiritual fathers, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Under the direction of choirmaster David Mulovhedzi and South African Director and Executive Producer Beverly Bryer, the Soweto Gospel Choir shares the brightest talent from churches and communities in and around Soweto. Theirs has been an incredible journey from the streets of Soweto to the world's most prestigious venues. Along the way, they have won two Grammys, an Emmy and an Oscar nomination, and they have just released their sixth album, Divine Decade. The New York Times describes their sound as “a cornucopia of remarkable voices: sharp, sweet, kindly, raspy and incantatory leads above a magnificently velvety blend.”
