One lucky choir from London will get the chance to join the internationally renowned 100 Voices of Gospel when they head to the city next month.
The Paris-based gospel choir will be performing at the Lyceum Theatre on Monday April 24 as part of their 2017 World Tour.
And now choirs from across the city are being invited to enter a competition to support the show by performing on stage ahead of the concert.
So, if you are aged four to 104 and in a school, church or community choir get rehearsing! All you need to do is send a showreel of your choir singing any song of your choice, be that classical, contemporary or downright original and then post the video on the 100 Voices of Gospel Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/Gospelpour100Voix/
The 100 Voices of Gospel will then select two choirs whose showreel will be posted on the their Facebook page where a winner will be selected by public vote.
The 100 Voices of Gospel came to prominence to UK audiences as finalists in last year’s Britain’s Got Talent. They are currently mid-way through a World Tour which will see them play three UK dates in London, Newcastle and Blackburn this April.
Since its inception in 1998, The 100 Voices of Gospel has travelled across the world sharing its passion, faith and love for gospel with captivated and loyal audiences. The popularity of this excellent choir continues to grow and it has become one of the most famous in the world.
Speaking about the choir competition The 100 Voices’ producer Jean-Baptiste Guyon said: “We are delighted to be inviting UK-based choirs to join us on our tour.
“It is a great honour for us to be bringing our World Tour to England. We are already very firmly established across Europe but we really want to break the UK market now and get to know the audiences.
“We plan to do that by inviting choirs local to those venues to support our performances as not only is this a great opportunity for those choirs, it would also be wonderful for us to have local people involved in our show.”
Last year, The 100 Voices of Gospel wowed Britain’s Got Talent audiences with judge Alesha Dixon declaring them as her “Golden Buzzer” act which secured them an immediate place in the live finals.
The UK dates are presented by music and event promoters Cuffe & Taylor.
Tickets to the UK concerts are available from www.seetickets.com
All entries to the competition must be posted to www.facebook.com/Gospelpour100Voix/ by midnight Friday March 31 (now closed) with the winners being announced on Friday April 14.
