NEWS / BBC Gospel Christmas
Singer and musical theatre star Beverley Knight and US jazz-soul-gospel singer Gregory Porter brought a feast of uplifting festive music from the cream of the British gospel scene, at the church of St John at Hackney in London. It is a big Christmas singalong – gospel style!
The longstanding London Community Gospel Choir and the fresh and funky House Gospel Choir are joined by Mobo-nominated songstress Katy B, Lion King star Shaun Escoffery and vocal quintet Vadé, as well as contributions from the hosts – a transatlantic duo each with their feet firmly in gospel.
