Fame: choir group music for all seasons off to the UK

2008-03-13 00:00

Some 10 months ago, Johannesburg-based Music for All Seasons gospel choir, which includes several Pietermaritzburg-born members, released an album. Little did its 14 members know that world fame was coming their way.

The album has received acclaim in Britain and today the choir leave for an overseas Easter tour.

The group are also optimistic that they will be nominated for the annual SA Music Awards (Samas).

Prior to the group’s invitation to Britain, workshops were held by a combination of churches, at which the group were invited to perform. The workshops were also attended by pastors from the U.S. and Europe, who liked the choir’s music.

This led to invitations from London gospel group CJAM to participate in their Easter services in eight different venues in London.

Music for All Seasons has 14 members, five from Pietermaritzburg, and another three who are from the city and have since relocated to Johannesburg.

Four members are sisters.
