The Harlem Gospel Choir feed off the infectious and receptive vibes of the audience they perform in front of and it was no different at the Southbank Centre in London.


Indeed, they honour the sounds of American Gospel singing with soaring passion in voice and gesticulation.


As they entered the stage the drums and keyboard set the rhythmic mood with elements of Jazz and Blues music. As a spectator, silence or being comfortable in your seat isn’t an option as for at the next two hours all that are present are made to feel as members of The Harlem Gospel Choir with joyful clapping and dancing.


Their lyrics and instrumentals portray a zest for life, energy and optimism. Indeed, they honoured many of Beyoncé’s blockbuster songs such as Halo.


Should you be effortlessly demonstrating that you are having a ball of a time then it will get noticed, as some spectators came to find out by being invited on stage to receive a free souvenir in the form of a Harlem Gospel Choir wristband so you can feel the love and share the love.


In summary The Harlem Gospel Choir’s willingness to entertain ensured that nobody left the theatre  in a conventional manner, but instead sang and danced their way to the exits such was the invigorating performance.

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
