Three-time Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir will bring joy and inspiration to Bloomington this fall with their concert of HOPE: It’s Been a Long Time Coming, commemorating South Africa’s freedom movement and the civil rights movement in the United States.
This unforgettable evening will start with a rousing program of South African freedom songs that inspired their Rainbow Nation. Then it will move to the United States with beautiful and heartfelt renditions of the music of the civil rights movement featuring works by legendary artists, including Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, and the one and only Aretha Franklin.
Hailing from the town of Soweto, the birthplace of South Africa’s democratic movement’s struggle for freedom, Soweto Gospel Choir inspires audiences around the world with their powerful blend of African gospel, freedom songs, U.S. Civil Rights songs, and international classics. Don’t miss the spectacular Soweto Gospel Choir!
