Award-winning Choir The Spirituals Have Announced Their First Live Tour

Award-winning choir The Spirituals have announced their first live tour – in partnership with international development agency Christian Aid

The two are joining forces in a bid to give a voice to vulnerable communities and inspire audiences to take action against poverty and injustice.

The Spirituals were formed in October 2020, by music artist, Junior Garr and arranger/conductor Marsha Morrison, and began by reimagining spiritual anthems to commemorate black history, music and culture.

This month (June) they won Choir of the Year at the Premier Gospel Awards, held at Cadogan Hall, Chelsea.

The London-based choir has so far released three EPs – including a Christmas one, which fuses traditional carols with gospel music – and performed in iconic venues including Lambeth Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Wembley Arena, as well as the 2022 Olympics.

They love to create new arrangements from powerful classics, such as Something Inside So Strong, with the aim of highlighting injustice and inspiring people to take action.

Now they are embarking on a UK tour and have joined forces with Christian Aid, the charity which works with local partners in the most vulnerable communities around the globe.

From September, the singers will be on the road, calling in at venues in cities including Birmingham, Nottingham, Cambridge and London.

Co-founder and creative director, Junior said partnering with Christian Aid is a natural fit given their shared values and vision.

He added: “The Spirituals want to make a difference by inspiring, stirring and moving people through music which breaks down barriers. Christian Aid is fighting injustice and poverty through global initiatives, by speaking truth to power to bring about lasting change for people and communities which may otherwise be overlooked.

“We must find a way to foster and fight for justice and equality for disadvantaged individuals everywhere.”

Christian Aid’s Head of Community and Church Fundraising and Engagement Pete Moorey said the tour was an exciting opportunity.

He added:

Christian Aid is delighted to partner with the Spirituals  and can’t wait for the tour. 

Music has a way of bringing people together and with this opportunity we can be united with audiences in joy and hope as well as raising vital funds for transformational projects in the most vulnerable communities.

Dates and venues for the tour are still to be announced – for more information, to book tickets, or to express and interest in booking a tour stop, email
