Powerhouse Gospel Choir
Booty swaying red hot gospel. Hallelujah!
The Powerhouse Gospel Choir is a red hot female choir, led by director and founder, T Jae Cole. Honing their skills in The London Community Gospel Choir, many have since gone on to work with some of the world’s biggest artists such as Quincy Jones, Pharrell Williams, Blur, Sam Smith, Tom Jones, Florence and the Machine and Ellie Golding.
Gospel music is at the root of much soul, R&B and blues. Many of the world’s most famous vocalists started singing first in gospel choirs – Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Howlin’ Wolf and Al Green. And the gospel tradition has also influenced many white artists and contemporary black artists such as Rolling Stones, Sam Smith and Kanye West. Although religious in origin its secular form retains the typical “call and response”, close harmonies and reputation for exuberant performances.
This powerful performance will lift the spirits, raise the roof and rattle those walls. Singing traditional gospel songs as well as more contemporary covers, the Powerhouse Gospel Choir will knock your socks off with their sheer passion and joyful exuberance. Don’t miss this memorable experience.
