Media: Official Winnie Mandela Memorial Service

The Soweto Gospel Choir took part in the the official memorial service for Winnie Mandela held at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on April 11, 2018.

The choir could be seen throughout the service on stage. Below is a video that recaps their main parts, including the following songs:

  • Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika
  • The Lord’s Prayer
  • Ndikhokhele
  • Phaya Phaya
  • Joko Yahao

This is a rare appearance of the full SGC with both “first/touring” and “second/home” choirs; performing together as one.

RIP Winnie Mandela
