- Music Knows No Borders
South Africa’s quintessential musical ensemble brings a centenary celebration of Nelson Mandela. The Grammy Award-winning choir has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music — including U2, John Legend, Peter Gabriel, and Diana Ross — and scored an Academy Award nomination for its work on the soundtrack to Pixar’s WALL-E. The 43-member choir, drawn from churches in and around Soweto, inspires audiences, sharing the joy of faith.
