Soweto Gospel Choir was formed to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African Gospel music. The ensemble, "52 voices strong," draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto. The choir is dedicated to sharing the joy of faith through music with audiences around the world.
The choir's harmonies, colorful costumes, and gentle rhythmic choreography appeal to a broad audience. They have toured with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and performed with artists including U2, Josh Groban, Celine Dion, and Diana Ross. Soweto Gospel Choir won their first Grammy Award in 2007 for their recording, "Blessed." They won their second Grammy in 2011 for the song "Down to Earth," a collaboration with Peter Gabriel that appears on the Wall-E soundtrack.
