The Angel City Chorale, a non-profit community chorale based in Los Angeles, is known for riveting performances that make good use of their 160 members. However, they don’t limit their music-making to just singing – snapping fingers, clapping and even jumping are all part of the game when creating that perfect sound.
Which is exactly what makes this cover of Toto’s “Africa” so amazing. Even if the song title sounds unfamiliar, you’ll probably recognize the beat once it gets going. In February 1983, it was America’s number one hit song, and in the years since, it has continued to enjoy radio playtime on classic rock stations. Maybe it’s the heartfelt lyrics about a continent full of wonder, the beat of the drums or the explosive chorus, but either way, “Africa” always keeps people coming back for more.
