Joyous Celebration formed in 1994 and has been growing ever-popular, becoming one of Mzansi's biggest gospel groups.

They've treated South Africans to 22 albums and aren't showing any signs of slowing down any time soon.

In fact, Joyous Celebration is planning to record their 23rd album very soon, if they're not already busy.

They are consistently breaking barriers and became the first SA gospel group to win four SA Music Awards, as reported on by News24.

Now, the group can also show off with a new achievement that reflects their success: they are 2019's most-streamed artist on Deezer, which is a French online music streaming service.

This comes shortly after Briefly.co.za reported that the Ndlovu Youth Choir brought us a uniquely Mzansi-flavoured Silent Night, with the help of fellow SA singers.

The collaboration is part of the choir's #HopeForTheHolidays drive, which hopes to unite South Africans by breaking language barriers through music.

Singers such as Donald Moashe, Lira, Yanga, Elvis Blue and Nadine came together to create a truly beautiful song. Chorister Babalwa Maqungo said the artists were more than happy to put their names behind the initiative.

The six languages in which Silent Night is sung are IsiZulu, IsiXhosa, Afrikaans, Setswana, Sesotho and English, and it soothes the soul to hear these languages go together so well.
