London Community Gospel ChoirLondon Community Gospel Choir

 

From humble beginnings in 1982, the LCGC is now Europe’s leading Gospel choir. An eclectic mix of races, ages and backgrounds makes it a truly special blend of talent, voices and personalities. They regularly grace many of the UK’s greatest stages such as Wembley Stadium (FA Cup Final), the Royal Albert Hall, and they are regulars at the Glastonbury Festival.

 

The choir is also the first point of call for a variety of major recording artists including Sir Paul McCartney, Kylie, Sting, Brian May and Tina Turner, and recent collaborations include Damon Albarn, the National Theatre, Sam Smith and Madonna at the Brit Awards, Grammy Awards and now the X Factor. They gave a critically-acclaimed performance at the British premiere of the Martin Luther King biopic Selma. A concert not to be missed!
