Following their show-stopping performance of Stand By Me at the Royal Wedding The Kingdom Choir will perform a headline concert at London’s Union Chapel.
The Kingdom Choir – who have just signed a major record deal with Sony Music UK – will take to the stage at the iconic Islington venue on Wednesday November 28.
Tickets go on general sale on Friday 27 July at 9am. There will also be an O2 pre-sale on Wednesday 25 July and a venue pre-sale on Thursday 26 July, with both of these pre-sales starting at 9am.
The Kingdom Choir, managed by Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE at InterTalent, 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 the Royal Wedding on May 19, their arrangement of Stand By Me has also become a viral internet sensation receiving more than 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 almost two billion people at the Royal Wedding, the largest audience The Kingdom Choir had performed to was just 200 people.
Karen Gibson, conductor of The Kingdom Choir, said: “The Kingdom Choir are absolutely delighted with the journey of the past few months! It’s been a rollercoaster, but we wouldn’t have it any other way – first, the honour of being able to sing at the Royal Wedding, and then the thrill of being signed to Sony! It’s like an un-dreamt dream – one that you wouldn’t even consider, because you never thought it could happen to you. We’re very grateful and very excited about what’s to come in the next few months too…”
The Kingdom Choir’s debut album will be released via Sony Music on Friday 2 November 2018.
