Soweto Gospel Choir: The South Africa-based vocal group has shared a stage with U2's Bono, Sarah McLachlan and Robert Plant through Nelson Mandela's 46664 campaign, which promotes social awareness through poverty and HIV/AIDs. So they've certainly tangled with a few luminaries - Mandela included - over the Grammy-winning choir's 10-year history. Soweto is on tour promoting their sixth album, "Divine Decade," which includes collaborations with the aforementioned musicians, and will stop by the Adrienne Arsht Center (1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) for an 8:30 p.m. Wednesday show. $35-$55. 305-949-6722 or ArshtCenter.org. - Phillip Valys
