JOYOUS CELEBRATION (article first published : 2001-04-21)

The brainchild of Sony Music South Africa’s Lindelani Mkhize and Mthuni Namba, Joyous Celebration started five years ago, when the two artists decided to break the barriers of gospel music, by giving it a fresh, vibrant look.

Featuring a 32-member choir with a mix of familiar artists as well as fresh unknown voices, a six-piece band and four top South African dancers, Joyous Celebration is a vibrant inspirational music extravaganza featuring revamped classical hymns and contemporary gospel music. To be performed in the Playhouse Opera Theatre from May 24 to 27, the event forms part of Sony Music South Africa’s creative spirit to rid communities of crime and violence through the healing powers of contemporary gospel music.

On its national tour last year Joyous Celebration staged a total of 27 shows in 10 cities in all nine provinces. The group scooped the best gospel award during the Metro FM Music Awards in October 2000, demonstrating that the tour truly captured the hearts and souls of many South Africans.
