Winner of the 2019 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album, the world’s most critically acclaimed choir brings its ‘Hope’ concert to North America and Canada for the first time.

In its concert of “Hope,” commemorating and remembering South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., three-time Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir brings joy and inspiration to all of us.

An unforgettable night starts with some of the South African freedom songs that inspired its Rainbow Nation, then moves to the United States with beautiful and heartfelt renditions of the music of the Civil Rights movement, featuring works by legendary artists Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and the one and only Aretha Franklin.
