Filed in Article by on October 11, 2023 8 Comments

Are you an upcoming South African Gospel artist? Do you have what it takes to be the next rising star in the gospel music industry? Then this is your chance. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the MTN Joyous Celebration Talent Search 2024-2025. Yayyyyy! I can feel the cold of ecstasy sip through my entire body already and I know you feel that way too.

A sequel to South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994, Joyous Celebration was created as one of South Africa’s Gospel Choirs, and the group has shaken the globe with its exceptional presentations over the years.

At that time, there didn’t seem much hope for the group, because it was meant to be a one-time studio project but look how it evolved into a huge playground for hundreds of upcoming artists in South Africa. As one of the most successful gospel choirs in SA aside from The Soweto Gospel Choir, the group had released 23 albums as of 2019.
