One major goal of Soweto Gospel Fans is to provide SGC fans with features that are unique to this site—stuff you cannot find anywhere else.
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 that we see performing on stage? What are their back stories? Their inspirations and thoughts?
Thus, this Getting to Know… feature was born and it is my hope that a new Choir member will be featured on a semi-regular basis.
I am honoured that Thembisa Khuzwayo agreed to be featured first. Thembisa has been with the Choir since its inception in 2002 and not only does she have a beautiful soprano singing voice, but she is also one of the Choir’s primary dancers. Audiences will definitely not miss her while she’s performing on stage!
Also, a big thank you to Thembisa for not only taking the time to answer these questions, but for all the help she’s been in relaunching the brand new Soweto Gospel Fans.
