Beautiful, colorful images. Crisp sound. Absolutely inspired singing and dancing. Some songs caused tears to stream down my face. Others made me want to get up and dance. Still others offered comfort and hope in this difficult journey called life. All of this with only a few songs in english. God truly speaks through these people. Hear and see them!

...is the opportunity to see this group in live performance. I did that this past fall (and treated 8 people to this concert) and I look forward to seeing them again.

I've been a huge admirer and fan of this choir since 2006. They never disappoint and their musical gift is a blessing each and every time I see them in person or play a CD. This DVD just reminds me over and over again why I love them so. Even my toddler daughter is soothed and entertained by their music. Unexpectedly, their slower songs became her source of lullaby music at three weeks old! She enjoys them so much, she now asks for her "music." Their performances in various languages don't matter either--everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or age, should experience the harmonious sounds of SGC...if you haven't, you are truly missing out.

I saw the Soweto Gospel Choir first in South Africa in 2000, then again in Tallahassee in 2012. This video captures the essence of the joyous nature of this genre of music indigenous to South Africa. I highly recommend it.

Just enjoyed this vibrant, life-giving, high energy group of African performers. Their Gospel singing is deeply spiritual and inspirational. The English translation for their songs are written on the inside of the DVD folder, which means I can really enter into the beauty and depth of their songs. We have seen this choir live a couple of times, and this DVD brought so many of those wonderful memories back to me. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who lives African Soul music or Gospel music generally. The costumes are also amazingly bright and colorful, as we have come to expect and enjoy from African cultures.
