London Community Gospel Choir
An inspirational and vibrant concert by The London Community Gospel Choir had people on their feet as they joined in the performance in Lisburn Cathedral on Saturday evening (20th September).
Alongside support vocalist Monique, the choir provided an uplifting concert of modern and classic Gospel music, in the historic setting of the Cathedral. The crowd clapped, danced and sang along in an evening that will be long remembered by all who were present.
Individual members of the audience were given their moment in the limelight as they had the opportunity to take the microphone to sing with the choir. As the evening drew to a close Caroline Webb, a young parishioner of the Cathedral, was brought up to the stage to give a stunning performance of “Amazing Grace.” The concert reached a wonderful finale as the choir sang “Oh Happy Day”.
This was the first time that world-famous London Community Gospel Choir have performed in Northern Ireland, they have previously performed with artists such as Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Madonna or Kylie, to name a few of the greats, however the concert on Saturday evening provided the opportunity for people to see them in a local church setting. The Choir have said they hope to return in the future.
