Mesmerizing. Energetic. Infectious. Exuberant. Joyous. These are just some of the words used to describe the Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir. During its U.S. tour, the 22-member choir, drawn from churches in and around Soweto, South Africa, will celebrate the emotional and spiritual power of African and American gospel music, as well as reggae and popular music. The choir’s only Iowa stop, sponsored by the University of Iowa, will be on March 27 at the Riverside Casino. — M.G.
