Don't miss the spectacular Soweto Gospel Choir LIVE in Australia in 2019 - Image: Soweto Gospel Choir FB


Hailing from Soweto, a town outside of Johannesburg, the Soweto Gospel Choir was formed in 2002 with the goal of celebrating the unique and inspirational power of African Gospel music. South Africa is known as the 'Rainbow Nation' and the gorgeously-attired members of the Soweto Gospel Choir are the perfect synopsis for this colourful title. The Soweto Gospel Choir has achieved phenomenal success, recording five albums, two DVD's and winning numerous awards in South Africa, the USA and Australia. They are proud Ambassadors for the Nelson Mandela Foundation and their patron is Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The Soweto Gospel Choir has performed with some of the most celebrated names in music, as well as performing for some of the most influential people in the world. To get the inside 'goss' on their success story, have a look at their history time-line here.



Australia, once again has the opportunity to bask in South Africa's most heavenly voices as the Soweto Gospel Choir tour with 'Freedom', a concert celebrating Nelson Mandela, or Madiba as he was affectionally known.

From Alice Springs to Wagga Wagga and everywhere in-between, audiences can book a date with these flamboyant singers and share in their sheer jubilation of life. The Soweto Gospel Choir will be moving around Australia, from state to state, at quite a pace, meaning that the 'Freedom' concerts are usually one-night 'stands', and usually to full-house audiences. To ensure readers don't miss out on being touched by this vibrant little piece of Africa, here are the Soweto Gospel Choir's tour dates, with links to purchase tickets online.
