The 40-plus-member-strong Soweto Gospel Choir have two Grammys to their credit (three if you count their contribution to Christopher Tin’s “Baba Yetu”). But that’s the least of the reasons why you should care about them. And you don’t have to believe in god to be moved and inspired by their sonic expressions of love, unity, and hope. The South African group bring extra helpings of joy and uplifting exuberance to their rich, infectious, multi-voice performances of African gospel music, American spirituals, freedom songs, reggae, and pop music. Soweto Gospel Choir—who were among the lineup of performers at the first 46664 Concert, a series of AIDS benefits hosted by Nelson Mandela from 2003 to 2008—celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth in their 2018 album, Freedom, and their current worldwide tour in support.
