HOPE – It’s Been a Long Time Coming
Three-time Grammy Award winners Soweto Gospel Choir celebrate the holidays with their powerful blend of African gospel, freedom songs and international classics, as well as Christmas songs.
Out of the darkness comes a new dawn! This all-new concert by Soweto Gospel Choir commemorates South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the civil rights movement in the United States.
Bringing joy to all, HOPE opens with a rousing program of South African freedom songs that inspired their Rainbow Nation. Then, the choir’s uplifting performance moves to the United States with beautiful renditions of the music of the civil rights movement, including works by legendary artists Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and the one-and-only Aretha Franklin.
