The Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir has added its distinctive sound to Disney Pixar’s latest hit WALL-E, which hits South African cinemas tomorrow.

Down to Earth was written by English musician Peter Gabriel, of Genesis fame. It will run during the film’s credits, with the choir singing the chorus. The animated movie, which is topping sales on the US circuit, follows the journey of a robot left on an abandoned planet Earth.

“The Soweto Gospel Choir is absolutely thrilled to have collaborated with Peter Gabriel on the WALL-E song. They are not only honoured to have sung with an icon of the music industry, but to have the song included in one of the top films on circuit,” said Beverly Bryer, executive producer of the Soweto Gospel Choir.

Gabriel approached the choir to work on the song after collaborating with it at the December 46664 Aids benefit concert . The choir recently performed with Josh Groban and Amy Winehouse at Madiba’s birthday party in London. It has sung for talk-show host Oprah Winfrey, and it sang “Happy Birthday” to its patron, retired archbishop Desmond Tutu.
