Soweto Gold

How cool is this! The Soweto Gospel Choir and Irish rockers U2 received a Sports Emmy Award for the Outstanding Music Composition / Direction / Lyrics category at the Annual Sports Emmy Awards presented for the 32nd year by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in New York on Monday night. ESPN’s unprecedented commitment of resources to an event, for the month long FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa, was rewarded with three Sports Emmy Awards, including recognition of the outstanding Soweto Gospel Choir and U2 collaboration. “We are proud to be associated with ESPN and U2 for their magnificent 2010 FIFA World Cup television campaign”, says Beverly Bryer, the Choir’s Executive Producer/Director. Well done guys!
