London African Gospel Choir performs Paul Simon's GRACELAND
Known for bringing African gospel into the hearts of audiences worldwide, the London African Gospel Choir has announced a Dublin performance of Paul Simon’s classic ‘Graceland’ at the National Concert Hall on the 4th of October 2022, which will be performed by 16 members of the choir. It follows their sold-out show at NCH in 2019.
On the night the audience can expect unforgettable arrangements of Paul Simon songs such as The Boy In The Bubble, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes and You Can Call Me Al.
The renowned choir frequently headline their own tours around the world, with dates regularly selling out, along with appearing on festival bills around the UK and Europe.
Over the years the choir has performed on stage and television with stars like Emile Sande, Mumford & Sons, Tom Jones and the Soweto Gospel Choir, with whom they made a triumphant appearance at London’s 02 Arena, singing in front of 17,000 people. Annie Lennox also invited them to perform at a number of prestigious events, including the MIT Awards and the choir has worked with actor/director Idris Elba, star of “Mandela: Long Road To Freedom” who recruited them for an album celebrating South African music, recorded in tribute to Nelson Mandela.
“An album about isolation and redemption that transcended ‘world music’ to become the whole world’s soundtrack,” - Rolling Stone
