Out of the darkness comes a new dawn!
This all-new concert by 3-time Grammy®-winning SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR commemorates South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Bringing joy to all, HOPE opens with a rousing program of South African freedom songs that inspired their Rainbow Nation. Then the choir’s uplifting performance moves to the United States with beautiful renditions of the music of the Civil Rights Movement, including works by legendary artists Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and the one-and-only Aretha Franklin. Get ready; HOPE is a concert that will live forever in your hearts!
