“…IT IS MORE THAN A SHOW, IT IS A FEELING…”
Pope John Paul II.
Finally, something out of NYC that isn’t gentrifying and destroying Lisbon: Harlem Gospel Choir.
After more than two decades of bringing joy to both Harlem and the world, these divine voices have made it to Portugal. Here’s how what they describe what they do:
“Deeply rooted in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith – Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, Soul, and Rock-and-Roll…they all have origins in black gospel music. Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today.
Harlem Gospel Choir embodies the spirit of American Gospel. Every concert is infectiously enthusiastic; a roller coaster ride of singing and dancing; a gospel celebration! The Choir’s rich harmonies & dynamic sound are “UNFETTERED & JOYOUS”. Their harmonious songs of love and hope and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul, lift your spirit, and take your breath away!”
Teatro Tivoli BBVA invites the legends for two concerts to warm your soul. Get your tickets here, and come be inspired, Harlem style!
