Soweto Sounds: Amazing Grace & Where The Streets Have No Name

For those who remember, one of the highlights from ESPN’s coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup were their television spots that featured U2 and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

Collaborating together on some big ticket songs, their renditions of Amazing Grace, Where the Streets Have No Name, Put on Your Boots and Magnificent were simply outstanding.

To celebrate the holidays, U2 just released a preview to their fans of one of the songs that will be included in their 2011 release Duals.

Lucky for SGC fans, the song that was released was a combination of Amazing Grace and Where the Streets Have No Name.

Listen to the song below and enjoy!
