We introduce Gospel Goes Beyond Choir!

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.

GGB consists of fourteen members from all over South Africa, each with the common goal of creating a unique fresh musical experience that remains true to the essence of Gospel Music, but draws its distinct sound from other popular genres of music such as Hip Hop, Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Soul and Kwaito, to name a few.

Inspired by this vision, Nqobile Sibeko   has written, produced and composed all the songs for the Group’s debut album. GGB has already enjoyed collaborations and performances with top SA artists including Loyiso  and Ernie Smith amongst others.

The group has performed for One Gospel’s Call to Worship Launch and will soon be hosting an album launch featuring Ernie Smith before embarking on a national tour.
