This phenomenal Gospel Choir was first started in Soweto in South Africa, bringing together some of Africa's exquisite singers performing a repertoire that combines traditional African songs handed down through the generations; African Gospel; and unique renditions of international classics as well as South African Freedom songs.

Their music gives audiences worldwide an absolute sense of euphoria:- President Bill Clinton, President Obama, Oprah Winfrey and naturally their own spiritual fathers, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, as well as the British Royal Family have all had the privilege of being entertained by these extraordinary singers.
