The Birmingham Town Hall Gospel Choir are still on a high, since winning the first ever Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year competition, broadcast recently on BBC 1. Choir Director, Colin Anderson, told Keep The Faith: “We are very proud to be the inaugural winners, and humble at that. We feel really good. It’s a title that will never be taken away from us.”
The Choir have been overwhelmed with congratulations since their win. “It’s been really fantastic, people getting on Facebook saying they liked us, and that they really enjoyed it. It’s been really great.”
As you can imagine, enquiries for choir bookings have increased, and one organisation has booked them for a date in 2015.
The Choir are now gearing up for a seasonal concert at The Drum, 144 Potters Lane, Aston, Birmingham, B6 4UU on December 15. They will be performing Christmas carols, songs from their repertoire, as well as the songs that won them the BBC title.
Colin has big plans for the Choir: they have been in the recording studio and will be selling a single at their Christmas concert and, during 2014, hope to perform throughout the UK, in Europe and the Caribbean. Keep The Faith wishes them the best.
Tickets are £8 and £12.50 (including booking fee). Visit www.the-drum.org.uk for more details.
