The world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir is the most famous gospel choir in America and a pre-eminent gospel choir worldwide. It travels the globe, sharing the joy of faith through its music and raising funds for children’s charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from Harlem’s Black Churches and the New York/Tri-State area.

The Choir strives to make the world a more loving and peaceful place, and through its music and dynamic performances create a better understanding of the African-American culture and the inspirational music called gospel as it relates to the Black Church. The theme of every performance is “bringing people and nations together and giving something back.”
The Harlem Gospel Choir’s songs of gospel and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul and lift your spirit to angelic heights, with sounds that are unfettered, joyous, and inspirational. With every performance, the Choir shares the renaissance of Harlem’s culture with the audience. Every performance will take your breath away!
