From African gospels to American pop songs, the uplifting music of the Soweto Gospel Choir has something to put a smile on anyone’s face. Formed in South Africa in 2002, the group is praised for its international reach, and has earned two Grammys. The singers aren’t in it for the fame, though: all they aim to do is spread the love. Freedom, the choir’s latest release, honors the late Nelson Mandela with timeless African anthems and powerful gospel songs.

Saturday 12/1. $24.75-44.75, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
