HV Gospel Choir – Choir | UK

This is a group of dynamic, inspirational and talented singers, musicians and songwriters created in 1994 by its founder and director.

A well-known and respected face in the British gospel music industry, during his career as a musician, producer and songwriter, John has worked with many established names such as The London Community Gospel Choir, Chaka Khan, Noel Robinson, Mica Paris, Denise Williams, Ruby Turner, Candi Staton, Alexander O’Neal, Gabrielle, Michelle Gale, Cece Winans, David Carrick (Genesis), Manu D’bango to name but a few. In the years since the group was formed the choir has gone through many changes in style, name, look and sound.

2003 saw a great development in choir’s career, when they were invited to be the guest artists at Luciano Pavarotti’s wedding. Back at home in 2004 the choir were the guest artist on the Cilla Black Christmas show viewed by more than 5 million viewers, and in 2005 was chosen as the favoured choir to celebrate with Heather Small (M PEOPLE) at the 2012 Olympic announcement in Trafalgar square, seen throughout the world.

The group is now a 16-piece gospel soulful outfit of young energetic people, from the West Indian, African and British heritage, who live, work and study within the inner city. Everyone in the group share the same faith, beliefs and convictions that helps them to stay focused and provide a strong, positive message of love, hope, joy and peace for everyone through the use of song, poetry and the expression of real life experiences.

Their sound is strong, contagious, urban and contemporary, but above all it’s uplifting. The choir has recently received rave reviews after they causes a storm at the Barbados gospel festival, where the group shared the stage with Stichie, Papa San and praise and worship supreme Don Moen.
