Biography

A good message, songs sung together, lifting, spiritual and explosive: when voices start to fly and hearts open – that’s gospel. It is expressed most completely when compared worldwide at concerts of the famous and original Harlem Gospel Singers.

The majestic, flowing, colourful, silk robes, the powerful choir, carefully selected wonderful solo voices, first-rate musicians on organ, piano, drums , bass and saxophone: the pulsing New York quarter of Harlem – home to more than 400 religious communities and above all cradle of the rich, Afro-American culture – was the inspiration at the beginning of the 90s for establishing the Harlem Gospel Singers. Their typical, contemporary, modern, unmistakable sound is also the result of virtuoso musical excursions into the areas of blues and jazz. With no fear of “worldly influences”, choreographed perfectly towards a strong, dynamic, quick-paced firework of rhythm and passion, the Harlem Gospel Singers have been enthusiastically celebrated at concerts in Madrid, Paris and London, in Milan, Vienna and Berlin. Alone audiences of 300 000 saw the group play during a concert for the pope in Bologna. Including the metropolitan cities of Europe, the group has won the hearts of way over two million people and has triggered a real Gospel comeback – with a wave of more or less able musicians following the barrel.
