House Gospel Choir have announced a new headline show at London Heaven for Wednesday 15th December 2021. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 3rd September, available here.
Bringing together a group of outstanding singers, songwriters, DJ’s and music makers, House Gospel Choir’s live sets create a fusion of the biggest house, gospel and garage tunes that make every performance an unforgettable experience. They burst onto the scene with ‘Salvation’, a debut single that was crowned BBC Radio 1 ‘Hottest Record’ by Annie Mac, peaking at #1 in the Music Week Cool Cuts Chart and #5 in the Billboard Dance Club Chart.
Releasing their acclaimed 14-track LP in October 2020 via Island Records, RE//CHOIRED was born out of a love for sound system culture, the healing power of house music and the group seeking to channel the magic of people working together to raise the vibrations. Collaborator Todd Terry recently declared to Mistajam on Capital Dance about the choir: “It’s beautiful, it’s black and it’s proud”.
The album has some of the biggest producers in dance music, with house legends Todd Terry and DJ Spen, UKG favourite Wookie, prolific producer Toddla T, Grammy-winning producer Alex Metric and UK Gospel legend Nicky Brown all contributing amidst a star-studded list of production talent.
In a challenging year, HGC were determined to do what they do best and keep raising those positive vibrations so 2020 saw the collective perform with Kylie Minogue for the ‘Infinite Disco’ live stream, the launch show for BBC Strictly Come Dancing, BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac in Mix takeover and live session for BBC Radio 2 Rylan on Saturday. 2021 has already seen HGC play a special Valentine’s Day live show for the GRAMMYs before they embarked on a summer filled with UK Festivals dates and UK tour in October.
Creative Director & Founder of House Gospel Choir Natalie Maddix explains, “I’ve always liked that quote from Frankie Knuckles, “house music is for church people who fallen from grace”. When I was growing up, my family was quite religious, and as all young people do, I had lots of questions about faith. Then I discovered raving! At first, they didn’t seem compatible, but I felt that a really good party experience is like being in a church – just being with people and feeling uplifted. I thought, I want more people to feel like this.”
Most recently teaming up with Ella Henderson & producers Just Kiddin for their single ‘Risk It All’ and forthcoming track on Rudimental’s album featuring HGC & Hamzaa ‘Keep Your Head Up’, HGC continue to spread the love and their mantra We Are One far and wide.
