VOICES CARRY

At the risk of sounding like a scrooge, the holiday song bombardment is starting to get to us. We need some real spirit; not the same generic jams over and over ad nauseam. Luckily, the Soweto Gospel Choir will be in town for two performances at the Jacobs Center’s Celebration Hall (404 Euclid Ave.) on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 4 and 7:30 p.m. The acclaimed chorus features dozens of distinct voices and is known for its angelic mix of African gospel, spirituals, pop and reggae. Yes, they’ll even perform some Christmas songs. And just as the choir might inspire concertgoers to spread a little joy on the way home, a portion of the ticket prices will go toward supporting the arts in Southeastern San Diego’s Diamond neighborhoods. Tickets start at $25. jacobspresents.com
