Happy Days this October
Cork Opera House will joyously welcome the world famous Harlem Gospel Choir October 20th, for an evening of contemporary gospel dashed with some jazz and blues.
Embodying the spirit of American Gospel, Harlem Gospel Choir have impressed and thrilled the globe with their spirited modern gospel performances; inspired by the gospel classics sung in the churches of Harlem today.
The choir has sung alongside countless internationally renowned artists; Bono, Diana Ross and Pharrell Williams to name a few. Their fusion of ‘Oh Happy Day’ and Pharrell’s own ‘Happy’ is a showcase for the infectious energy and glorious sound the choir can create. Performing for President Obama, President Nelson Mandela, Ban-Ki-Moon, and the UN General Assembly, this is an evening not to be missed. Pope John Paul II’s reaction to the exuberant ensemble gives an insight into to the impression Harlem Gospel Choir leaves on its audiences.
‘…it is more than a show, it is a feeling…’
Harlem Gospel Choir represent 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 ‘lift your spirit and take your breath away!’
