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.
Deeply rooted in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith – Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, soul, and rock-and-roll…they all have origins in black gospel music. The music of the Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today.
