ACCLAIMED gospel group MTN Joyous Celebration has added some new faces to the ensemble.

This follows the successful auditions that were recently held in Gauteng, the North-West, Mpumalanga, Eastern Cape and Free State.

The newest members are Bongi Mthombeni, Thato Rapapane, Sipho Mabena, Andile Thabethe, Nozipho Phiri and Londiwe Masondo.

“We are very excited about our new talented and well deserving pool who are currently hard at work rehearsing with the entire cast and we can’t wait for our fans and supporters to get to know them,” said Lindelani Mkhize, co-founder of Joyous Celebration.

“We also want to sincerely thank everyone who came through to the auditions and tried their best,” he added.

The newcomers will grace the Joyous stage for the first time at the Joyous 20 recording.

The live recording of a CD and DVD will happen at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday, 19 December. The historical show will mark the first ever outdoor live recording for Joyous Celebration.

“Do not miss out on this spectacular experience,” said Mthunzi Namba, co-founder of the ensemble.

Tickets are sold at Computicket from R280.
