Wits Choir


Recommended Posts

I'd never confess that I'd like spirituals. But yesterday, Wits Choir (it's a "band" with 31 members) was in our school. They taught us how to sing some of those songs they sing in concerts, and that was awesome. I talked to them and they were very friendly. So I had to go to the concert as well.. And the perfomance was ******* AWESOME!!!! I had to record it on my camera and since yesterday I've seen it twice. Anyways, Wits Choir comes from South Africa, from Johannesburg.


So, anyone? :D
