ROYAL WEDDING GOSPEL CHOIR THE KINGDOM CHOIR TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ‘STAND BY ME’ ON FRIDAY 26 OCTOBER 2018
Following their show-stopping performance of Stand By Me at the Royal Wedding on 19 May 2018, we are thrilled to announce that The Kingdom Choir debut album ‘Stand By Me’ is available everywhere now! The album features the choir’s much-loved version of Stand By Me that they performed at this year’s Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The choir’s diverse album track listing also includes captivating renditions of Beyoncé’s Halo, John Legend’s All Of Me as well as Stormzy’s Blinded By Your Grace Part 2. Also on the album is a brand new, emotionally powerful ballad written by members of The Kingdom Choir called Chases.
The choir was founded in 1994 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.
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 roller coaster, 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…”
