Soweto Sounds: Mama Tembu’s Wedding

Soweto Sounds: Mama Tembu’s Wedding

Mama Tembu’s Wedding is one of my favourite SGC songs that was performed by the Choir during their Blessed Concert encore (circa 2005-2006). It’s such a fun song and a hidden gem! Half the fun is watching the Choir dance and perform to it! Written by B. Egnos, the song was made popular by Margaret [...]

Well, it was a very basic upbringing [...]

With this goal in mind, I thought it would be appropriate to kick-off this section with a feature where we could meet members of the Choir. Who are the people [...]
