SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR
HOPE – It’s Been a Long Time Coming
A Concert of Hope Featuring Songs from South Africa’s ‘Freedom’ and the US ‘Civil Rights’ Movements
Out of the darkness comes a new dawn! This all-new concert by 3-time Grammy®-winning SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR commemorates South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Bringing joy to all, “HOPE” opens with a rousing program of South African freedom songs that inspired their Rainbow Nation. Then the choir’s uplifting performance moves to the United States with beautiful renditions of the music of the Civil Rights Movement, including works by legendary artists Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and the one-and-only, Aretha Franklin. Get ready, “HOPE” is a concert that will live forever in your hearts!
Soweto Gospel Choir’s “HOPE – It’s Been a Long Time Coming” has been commissioned by the University of Iowa Hancher Auditorium.
