One of America’s most active and famous gospel choirs, the Virginia State Gospel Chorale, who were finalists in the America’s Got Talent competition in 2013 and regularly appeared in the live show, will visit Debrecen on their European tour on the 9th of December.
The choir is visiting Hungary for the first time, and after last year’s highly successful Gospel Christmas concert series, we can now fill our hearts with the warmth of evergreen gospel and Christmas songs live with their performance at the Kölcsey Center.
The 25-member band is accompanied by a live band (drums, bass guitar, piano and saxophone), and on this year’s tour, the world-famous soloist David Bratton, who led the Billboard Gospel charts for more than 52 weeks and was Kölcsey Center’s guest in Hungary last year, also sings with them.
The choir, founded in 1971, has toured almost all of Europe. They had the opportunity to work with many celebrities. At the beginning of their career in honour of Pope John Paul II a concert was held in Central Park. In the late 1990s, they performed with Whoopi Goldberg, Diana Ross, Cindy Lauper at Radio City Music Hall and the BB King Blues Club.
In 2003, they won first place in the Black Music Caucus Choir competition in New York. In 2012, they won the How Sweet the Sound audience award, and in 2015, they won the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Award in the best choir category. During their European tour, they had the opportunity to perform twice at the Vatican Christmas concert.
During the choir’s European tour, after Hungary, they will also perform in Switzerland and Italy, including in the Vatican in front of the Pope.
