OK..To God be the glory. This is my favorite gospel choir and God knows it. Well, South African holy spirit inspired gospel choir JOYOUS CELEBRATION is set to launch their 16th album. The 16th album, which was recorded at Carnival City in Johannesburg, will be released to commemorate a national tour from 05 April to 11 August 2012.. The Joyous 16 album (CD and DVD) is titled ‘Royal Priesthood’ which means ‘the chosen race, a holy nation and God’s very own possession.’
