The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir was formed in 1988 and made its highly successful debut at New York’s Cotton Club the same year. The choir draws its core singers from various black churches in the Harlem community, who share the common aim of bringing about a better understanding of African/American culture. Founder member, Allen Bailey has worked in the entertainment industry for over 50 years.

The choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, Gorillaz and Andre Rieu. They have performed for two US Presidents, Nelson Mandela, two Popes, and have recorded with the likes of Sir Keith Richards, The Chieftains, and Trace Adkins.

Once again the choir return to Ireland to treat audiences here to powerful vocals, infectious energy and glorious sound.

Audiences should get ready to tap their feet, clap their hands, and even dance to this high-energy, joyous and exuberant performance, when the choir take to the stage at the Dunamaise on Tuesday, November 25.
