The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is synonymous with power vocals, glorious sound and infectious energy. For over two decades they have been America’s premier gospel choir and have toured the globe thrilling audiences with the inspirational power of black gospel music. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents, each year in November and December, the finest singers and musicians from Harlem’s Black Churches and the New York/Tri-State area.

Harlem Gospel Choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, The Gorillaz, Andre Rieu and most recently Sam Smith, Damon Albarn and Pharrell Williams. They have performed for three Presidents (President Obama, President Carter and President Nelson Mandela), two Popes (Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI) and have recorded with the likes of Sir Keith Richards, The Chieftains, and Trace Adkins.

In 2018 the choir performed with Sam Smith at the Grammy’s, and in the last two years they performed during Macys Thanks Giving Day Parade, the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular, and at the NBC Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rockefeller Center with Jordan Smith, Pentatonix, and Ne-Yo.
