The London African Gospel Choir was co-founded by Crystal Kassi to help London’s African community to promote the gospel, create a platform of excellence for African gospel singers and musicians, and popularise the African interpretations of gospel music. Tonight they will perform the classic Paul Simon album 'Graceland' in full live on stage.
The Choir have received extremely positive testimony from not only the public but also internationally renowned artists including Annie Lennox of Eurythmics and Paul Simon himself. As well as performing with artists such as Emeli Sandé and Mumford and Sons, the group tour their own exceptional rendition of the iconic Paul Simon’s 'Graceland' across the UK and most recently selling out shows on the East Coast of the States where they made a powerful impact on the public.
What also sets them apart is their repertoire - a dazzling reflection of the choir's diverse membership and that includes secular songs with a positive message. It's the meaning of the words that counts and Paul Simon's 'Graceland' - acclaimed as "one of the most iconic records in rock and roll history" on its release in 1986 - is a perfect fit with its uplifting lyrics and South African rhythms and melodies. They are releasing their long awaited first CD in August 2019.
The London African Gospel Choir should feel right at home on stage with their joyous singing and dancing, and their unforgettable arrangements of Paul Simon hits such as 'The Boy In The Bubble', 'Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes' and 'You Can Call Me Al'.
