U2 pairs up with Soweto Gospel Choir

Youth Journalism International had the chance to listen to recordings of U2 and the Soweto Gospel Choir singing some time back but could not release the news.
Now we can.
Claude Mitchell, coordinating music director at ESPN, said the Soweto Gospel will play a major role in the network’s World Cup coverage.
“We’ve been working on developing music ideas for the World Cup,” he said, that prominently include the choir.
Mitchell said that ESPN got U2 and the Soweto Gospel Choir to collaborate on songs that will be used during the network's extensive coverage of the World Cup in South Africa.
