Description

The Harlem Gospel Choir has traveled the world for 26 years sharing its joy of faith while fundraising for children’s charities. Founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, the Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from black churches in Harlem and the New York City area. The theme of every performance is “bringing people and nations together, and give something back”. The Choir has performed alongside superstars including Andre Rieu, Diana Ross, Bono, The Chieftains, Simple Minds, Live, Sinead O’Connor, Kim Wilde, Lyle Lovett, Josh Groban, Lisa Marie Presley and the Gorillaz. The Harlem Gospel Choir has also had solo performances for Royalty, President Obama, Nelson Mandela, Popes, Elton John, the Michael Jackson memorial and now SOPAC.

The Choir embodies the spirit of American Gospel. Every concert is infectiously enthusiastic, a roller coaster ride of singing and dancing, a gospel celebration! The Choir’s rich harmonies and dynamic sound are “unfettered and joyous”. Their harmonious songs of love, hope and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul, lift your spirit and take your breath away!
