“This choir has the spirit of gospel deep in its blood — and it shows.”—Washington Post

The spectacular and vibrant three-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir makes its UGA Presents debut with a special program celebrating South African and American artists associated with the struggle for civil rights and social justice. Expect to hear South African freedom songs as well as music by Aretha Franklin, Harry Belafonte, and Mahalia Jackson, in addition to traditional African gospel music and spirituals. Through its earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, brilliant costumes, and winning spirit, the Soweto Gospel Choir truly uplifts the soul.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:30 pm (free admission).
