The London African Gospel Choir was founded in 2003 with a vision to create a platform of excellence for African artists, provide employment and popularise African interpretations of gospel music. In pursuing these aims, the choir has found itself in front of audiences all over the world, with as many as 25 people on stage with a 9-piece band, or as intimate quartets. To mention but a few, the LAGC have performed with Emile Sande, Mumford & Sons, Tom Jones, and the Soweto Gospel Choir (with whom they made a triumphant appearance at London’s 02 Arena, singing in front of 17,000 people). Annie Lennox had invited them to perform at several prestigious events, including the MIT Awards. They’ve also worked with actor/director Idris Elba, star of Mandela: Long Road to Freedom who recruited them for an album celebrating South African music, recorded in tribute to Nelson Mandela.
