Soweto gospel choir

Multiple award-winning group, Soweto Gospel Choir, were hosted by Christ is Alive Ministries (CITAM) in Karen, Kenya. This is the choir’s first time in the nation of Kenya. The choir was formed in Soweto, South Africa, in 2002 by David Mulovhedzi and Beverly Bryer, two choir directors. The more than 30-member ensemble blends elements of African gospel, Negro spirituals, reggae and popular American music.

SIX LANGUAGES

Although the choir sings in six of South Africa’s 11 official languages, it reaches across all cultures, language barriers, and beliefs to bring a message of love, unity, and hope.

The first tour the choir ever did was to Australia, where every performance was sold out. After this, they did a month at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where presenters from around the world came to see them. This time in Edinburgh launched the band’s international touring career, and they have been travelling around the world ever since.

Popular for its colourful costumes, breathtaking vocals, performing energy and spirit, as well as their dancing and drumming, Soweto Gospel Choir has received many accolades which include, five Grammy nominations, three Grammy wins, one Emmy award, one Oscar nomination and so many more.

The group has performed for notable people including President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President Nelson Mandela and Oprah Winfrey.
