Founded in 1988 in Soweto, the choir was the first to express the struggle of the people in Apartheid South Africa in an organized musical context. The choir was there at the site of the struggle – at protest rallies, at funerals of victims of Apartheid and at commemoration services. It became the serenading voice of hope for the many families that felt isolated by the system.They were honored to sing at the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela and the elevation of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. When South Africa gained independence the choir spread a message of reconciliation to the new nation of South Africa and was a messenger of good news to the countries it visited. It continues with that mission today.
