Considered to be America’s leading gospel choir, Harlem Gospel Choir have performed for Nelson Mandela at the Yankee Stadium, for the Pope in Central Park, with the Chieftains on their US tour and on U2's “Rattle and Hum” album, film and tour.
Since 1988 the choir has drawn core singers from various black churches in the Harlem community, who share the common aim of bringing about a better understanding of African/American culture.
Founder member, Allen Bailey has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. He was promotional director for major recording artists including Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores, Prince, Michael Jackson, Mr. T, and Isaac Hayes. He was chairman for the Martin Luther King Holiday campaign and it was through this work that the Harlem Gospel Choir was born.
Harlem Gospel Choir was formed in 1988 and made its highly successful debut at New York's Cotton Club the same year. Their songs of inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights. The Choir devotes its time to spreading the joy of faith throughout the world.
This is not to be missed and promises to sell out quickly.
