Mary Fitzgerald is once again to be set on fire!

Catch the great-hit making Mafikizolo and Gospel Goes Beyond performing at the Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown, Johannesburg, South Africa.

About Mafikizolo:

 One of South Africa's most favourite music groups,Mafikizolo, is back with a brand new banging album after a well deserved two year break and this time they want to take their loyal fans on the musical journey of their lives. The transport for the journey is a Six Mabone - a classic car of the 60s-which is the title of their seventh album.

Theo Kgosinkwe, the male member of the duo, says: "In the 60s, Six Mabone had the same status asBMW today. And our music is enjoyed by the young and the old. We are taking our fans back and forth." The latest album is the second without Tebza who was killed in a road rage accident three years ago.

The new album has blues and swing elements and most of the songs were recorded with a live band.

Nhlanhla Nciza, the female member of the group, insists that although they brought new elements on this album but they have used the same formula like their previous platinum selling albums.

She said: "There is a bit of afro pop, kwela and marabi which have become our trademark. They say you must not fix something that is not broken and we are not going to mess with our winning formula."

The album features a remark of Miriam Makeba'sclassic Walila - and they deserve a round of applause for doing justice to the song. Anybody who does a remark or remix of Miriam Makeba's song has to know his story very well and be brave enough to do so.

About Gospel Goes Beyond:

Gospel Goes Beyond is an extraordinary gospel choir which has passionate and committed members.
Their story is one of responding to God’s call to make a difference through music and determined young people unwilling to blame their circumstances or lie back and accept

Unemployment as their lot in life, but to rather rise above any challenges thrown at them and use Their faith and their God-given talents to make a living, make a difference and spread God’s word.

Their ethos can be summed up by “A man reaps what he sows” “9 Let us not become weary in Doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:7 and 9.

In fact, the story goes back to late 2011 when the Zinto Records team came together with the vision of empowering individuals through music by starting a Gospel choir. The team, consisting of Tumi Hlatshwayo, Thabiso Motea, Thabiso Lawrence, Fezile Hlatshwayo and Nqobile Sibeko, of Joyous Celebration fame, as musical director. Swept along by this passion, auditions were held. Hundreds of auditions later, Gospel Goes Beyond were formalized.
