Members of this group have performed for or shared the stage with: Nelson Mandela; Oprah Winfrey; Quincy Jones; Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the Soweto Gospel Choir and kd lang. They were selected as the entertainers for the FIFA Confederations Cup Draw in Johannesburg South Africa in November of 2008 and are now bringing their incredible talent to Canada.
