- Africa is well known for people with beautiful voices and harmonies
- Fountain Gates, an acappella singing group from Zambia has proven its reputation is well-deserved in a Facebook video
- The harmonies of the men, who gathered informally on the street to perform an impromptu song are exquisite
When Africans unite, it's a beautiful thing to see. When they sing in harmony, it's enough to bring goosebumps to those listening.
Our rhythms and music have long been recognised worldwide, and Fountain Gates is an acappella music group that is the epitome of African harmony.
The group, from Zambia, was formed in 2001, under the umbrella of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Briefly.co.za found the group, composed of 11 members sings in a contemporary style, integrating different influences into their devotional Gospel songs.
The group said they do any style they choose to, with self-arranged songs which target all ages and local languages to suit the environment.
Fountain Gates released their gospel CD titled The Rock in 2017, and they regularly support other acappella singing groups in Zambia.
They thank God for their success and try to spread the Word through their music.
They may not be from South Africa as AcaRhythm stated in the post, but if this video is anything to go by, the group is set to make it big, both in Zambia and internationally. Their sound is absolutely thrilling.
