On cold winter evenings in New York City, when the city lights come on and passersby hurry through the streets, the churches of Harlem resound with the voices of gospel choirs. A neighborhood rich in history and culture that is a living testament to the power of this musical tradition. This is where gospel singing found its voice, when African American communities gathered in churches to express their faith through music.
And to Christmas this message becomes even stronger. The voices tell, the fast-paced rhythm does not allow one to stand still, the fullness of harmony embraces the whole audience.
Dream Gospel Voices is the American choir that combines the gospel tradition of the United States and modern music from overseas.
The ensemble's nine voices perform classic spirituals, a medley dedicated to Christmas and contemporary arrangements of popular gospel songs, from Amazing Grace to OHappy Day. The singers of Dream Gospel Voices bring with them long experience from the ranks of Harlem's most prestigious choirs.
The gospel is a language of the soul, a prayer sung to find ourselves. A way to continue to feeling that thread that binds us to all other living things.
