Spirit of Soweto evokes life’s joy on coldest night of year

Jane Hardy 1 December 2008 Belfast Telegraph When done well, gospel music is uplifting, nature’s Prozac if you like, with none of the chemical side-effects.

Soweto Gospel Choir outdoes itself at Lied

L Kent Wolgamott Lincoln Journal Star Nov 8, 2008 Bob Marley’s “One Love,” the gospel number “River Jordan,” a little hip-hop and a Detroitmeets-Memphis soul version of Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Remember You” poured off the Lied Center for Performing Arts stage Friday.

Fort Collins Review

By Tim Van Schmidt King Koncert October 29, 2008 The Soweto Gospel Choir doesn’t waste a second when on stage. At least that’s how their show went at the Lincoln Center last night.
