Prepared to exhilarated as the choir performs both traditional and contemporary music in six of South Africa's eleven official languages.
Along with their traditional South African anthems and 'Songs of the Free', the choir will perform their famously spellbinding renditions of 'Amazing Grace' and 'Hallelujah'.
