Atmosphere of Worship (AOW), is a choir of 30 talented worshipers based in Pretoria. The choir was founded by Tebogo Tsotetsi, Andile Skosana, Tisetso Maubane and Ishmail Ndlovu.
Tsotetsi describes the choir as a movement with mandate to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all four corners of the world using the media. Their slogan ‘Jesus to the world is a real testament of that’. The Choir is directed by Themba Idee Ntuli and has been in existence for 2 years.
They recently recorded their Live DVD on the 19th March 2017 at Giant Stadium, Soshanguve in north of Pretoria. The DVD is titled ‘Jesus to the world chapter 1’, the DVD featured well known Gospel artists such as the award winning Worship House, Alcy Tivane, Putuma Tiso and Sabata.
“We are inspired by the word of God and other ministers of this Gospel such as minister Kirk Franklin, Todd Dulaney, Marvin Winnable and the list goes on,” Tsotetsi said.
Tsotetsi also mentioned that the arts in South Africa is rapidly growing and young people are really making a great contribution to that. He mentioned the likes of Trevor Noah and Black Coffee who are really raising the South African flag very high by breaking into the international market, thus it is possible for all artists.
AOW would love to work with a lot of artist both locally and internationally. Here is South Africa they would love to work with Dr Tumi, Khaya Mthethwa, Nay Maps and Loyiso Bala. They would love to work with these artists because they believe that they carry the same sound that they are trying to get out there and have music that is for the present generation.
Internationally they would love to work with Todd Dulaney, Travis Green and many more artists.
“We are planning to tour the world, spreading the message of hope and touching lives through music. We want to leave a mark not just as singers but as people who influenced the direction of the Gospel industry,” Tsotetsi concluded.
