(Saturday)

The London African Gospel Choir’s members is comprised of UK based artists originating from diverse nations in Africa and its diaspora.
 
The was founded with the intention of creating a platform of excellence for UK based singers and musicians from Africa and it’s diaspora. They are re joy-bringers whose numbers can vary as the Choir has up to twenty members who perform in a variety of formats, from small vocal groups to a large-scale ensemble. At its core is a band featuring two keyboard players, two guitarists, bass, drums, percussion and three horn players. Some of the singers and musicians are well known in Africa or have appeared in West End shows like The Lion King. The group has stars in its midst but it is the sense of belonging and togetherness that binds them, driven by faith and respect for their fellow members, this ethos is undoubtedly felt by the audiences.
 
To mention but a few, the LAGC have performed with Emile Sande, Mumford & Sons, Tom Jones, and the Soweto Gospel Choir (with whom they made a triumphant appearance at London’s 02 Arena, singing in front of 17,000 people). Annie Lennox had invited them to perform at several prestigious events, including the MIT Awards. They’d also worked with actor/director Idris Elba, star of Mandela: Long Road to Freedom who recruited them for an album celebrating South African music, recorded in tribute to Nelson Mandela.
