In a proudly South African moment, Soweto Gospel Choir grabbed a 2019 Grammy Award for their recording Freedom. The choir is already a multiple-award winning group and is often making Mzansi super proud.
The 51st Grammy Awards were held at the "entertainment center of the world" - Los Angeles' STAPLES center.
It is here that South Africa's Soweto Gospel Choir bagged the Best World Music Album trophy for their album Freedom.
Diniloxolo Ndlakuse Shimmy Jiyane, Mary Mulovhedzi and Mulalo Mulovhedzi accepted the award on behalf of the proud group, as reported on by GoodThingsGuy.
Mulalo's late father, David Mulovhedzi, co-founded the musical group with Producer/Director Beverly Bryer in 2002.
Briefly.co.za gathered that this is the group's 5th nomination in this category and their 3rd win.
The group also won an Emmy for their collab with the famous group U2 and 4 SAMAs (South African Music Award), as well as a Metro FM Music Award.
There is no denying that the Soweto Gospel Choir is a talented group of musicians.
Congratulations to the group!
