When the Soweto Gospel Choir was named as winner of the Grammy for Best World Music Album, it earned the ensemble a place in the music history books.

The South African choir shares the inspiration behind their album Freedom, which earned them the award, a 12-track tribute to Nelson Mandela released to mark the 100th year of his birth.
