South Africa's most heavenly voices, the multi Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir are returning to Australia with a 47 city national tour commencing on 29 June 2014.

Since their formation in 2003 Soweto Gospel Choir have travelled the world bringing the joy of their music and the hope for a better world into the hearts of audiences everywhere. Their performances and recordings have been lauded by critics, by their public, and by their fellow artists.

They have collaborated, recorded and performed with artists including Bono and U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Peter Gabriel, Josh Grobin as well as classical music stars including Andre Rieu.

But the two greatest fans of the choir and their music have been their spiritual fathers, the Choirs Patron Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the father of their nation Nelson Mandela, for whom they have performed for and celebrated with on many occasions. In December 2013 the Choir were deeply honoured to be invited to commemorate Madiba's life at memorial services in South Africa followed by New York and in London.
