Award-winning gospel outfit Joyous Celebration is preparing for its Joyous Celebration 24 live recording at Sun City.
On the 13th and 14th of December fans will converge on the Superbowl for this unique DVD and CD recording event.
Five members of the beloved choir join Refiloe Mpakanyane in studio to talk about what they describe as a "great milestone" in Joyous Celebration's journey.
The family of MTN Joyous Celebration have been supporting us from Jazz 1 up until Jazz 24... Apparently the 14th is sold out so we are left with only the 13th. If you don't have your ticket right now, just rush to grab one because it's going to be lit!— Andile Thabethe, Joyous Celebration member
The choir is acclaimed as a vehicle for showcasing gospel talent in South Africa, as well as a training ground - Phamela Jejane and Andile Thabethe describe what it means to be a part of it.
As we all grew up you dream of becoming a good musician, a well-known person and when you get to be with Joyous Celebration it's like: Yes, a dream has come true!— Phamela Jejane, Joyous Celebration member
MTN Joyous Celebration is like a university where you get trained - how to present yourself on stage, how to present yourself as a gospel artist, how to build your brand.— Andile Thabethe, Joyous Celebration member
They say the bar has been set "high" for the live recordings. Book your spot with Computicket.
