Spiritually-Soaked Night w/ the Harlem Gospel Choir
@ SOPAC, March 9th at 8:00pm
This is your only chance to hear The Harlem Gospel Choir in New Jersey this year! For one night only, the beautiful harmonies and soaring melodies of this iconic ensemble will raise the roof at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC). Known for its gospel-style, visceral performances, the Choir has been applauded by critics and fans alike – even the Pope! " It's more than a show, it's a feeling! " - Pope John Paul II
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.
