Following their show-stopping performance of Stand By Me at the Royal Wedding on 19 May 2018, The Kingdom Choir have signed a major record deal with Sony Music UK. Managed by Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE, the record label beat off stiff competition to sign the highly sought-after collective. The choir were joined by the Sony Music UK team this morning at Kensington Palace to celebrate the monumental signing.
The Kingdom Choir will go into the studio later this month to begin recording their debut album which is set for a global release on Friday 2 November 2018. The album will include the choir’s much-loved rendition of Stand By Me which went straight in at Number 1 on the Billboard Gospel Songs Chart and showcases the pure joy and spiritual essence that runs through all of their performances. Since May, their arrangement of Stand By Me has also become a viral internet sensation receiving over 10 million views on YouTube.
The choir was founded in 1994 London by award-winning conductor Karen Gibson. The group of singers from in and around London draw from various Christian traditions and are dedicated to creating a sound that demonstrates the community they share through their warm energy and enthusiastic performance. Prior to performing in front of nearly 2 billion people at the Royal Wedding, the largest audience The Kingdom Choir had performed to was just 200 people.
