Rhythms of the World is incredibly excited to be able to host a special, intimate show from these internationally renowned performers who are more commonly seen at venues like the Royal Albert Hall and Wembley stadium!
Dubbed by the British media as ‘the nation’s favourite choir’, the London Community Gospel Choir (LCGC) have performed at many of the UK’s most prestigious events, such as the International FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, Glastonbury, Live 8 and World Aids Festival as well regular shows at the Royal Albert Hall. LCGC has also collaborated, performed and recorded with artists such as Tom Jones, Elton John, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Annie Lenox, Rod Stuart, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, Adele, Gorillas, Blur, Nick Jonas, One Republic, Gregory Porter, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey… And the list goes on.
From humble beginnings in 1982, LCGC came together to spread an important message of peace and unity in diversity through music and faith. Pioneering the sound of British Gospel Music, they soon rose to fame, and went on to become Europe’s leading Gospel brand and one of the world’s most in demand choirs. 35 years on LCGC’s unique, warm, rich, vibrant sound and charismatic, unforgettable performances continue to break boundaries and inspire people internationally, touching the hearts of audiences from all walks of life. Driven by the altruistic vision of peace, love and unity: “Out of many one voice” and the infectious passion and charisma of its founding leader, Bazil Meade MBE, LCGC is made up of an eclectic mix of united nations and ages from diverse backgrounds. This untouchable unique blend of voices, personalities and artistry is what makes this choir a truly special, groundbreaking force in international Gospel music today.
Tonight’s show will feature a unique and special tribute to the music of Prince, alongside the choir’s wonderful original material.
