In Loving Memory: David Mulovhedzi

In Loving Memory: David Mulovhedzi

It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that founding choirmaster and musical director David Mulovhedzi passed away last night. He was a father figure to all members of the Soweto Gospel Choir and will be on the minds of both Choirs as they wrap up their European and Asian tours. [...]

Must See Movie: Invictus

Must See Movie: Invictus

I just saw the movie Invictus today and am giving it two big thumbs up.  What a great story…and the music/score was awesome. The song Shosholoza (the Choir sings a beautiful version of it in its African Spirit album) is featured predominately throughout the movie. I am sure all fans of the Soweto Gospel Choir [...]

WC Draw: Closing Number

WC Draw: Closing Number

Found a lovely video of the closing number from the FIFA World Cup Draw yesterday (ignore the Korean commentary!). The Choir performs with Tshepo Tshola following the Snake Dance from the Umoja cast.  A fun bit of information, but the lady reciting the poem at the beginning is Jessica Mbangeni; she is a former member [...]

From what I can pick out, Thuli has a leading role with Mazwe, Mary, Fikile, Gugu, Nertia featured (among others). Unfortunately, the video is no longer [...]
