Soweto Gospel Choir’s 2016 Australia tour “Faith”

Soweto Gospel Choir’s 2016 Australian tour is called “Faith” in recognition of its personal faith as well as in recognition of the Choir’s journey since 2002. Faith also relates to the title of the latest song incorporated in its 2016 repertoire, Have a Little Faith best known through the recording of the late Joe Cocker. The Choir’s Australian repertoire includes a mix of Gospel, South African traditional, international classics as well as freedom songs.

Soweto Gospel Choir comes from Johannesburg, South Africa, and is named after the suburb of Soweto (South West Township) which was the home of Nelson Mandela and where the major uprisings occurred that eventually brought democracy to South Africa. The Choir is musically led by 3 of its founding members, Choir Director Shimmy Jiyane, Musical Director, Milton Ndlakuse and Manager Mulalo Mulovhedzi.
