Gospel choir raises roof at St Peter’s

Bray People - - NEWS -

There was no short­age of au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion at St Peter’s Church where Bray Gospel Choir re­cently held a con­cert.

‘We had a great time and the au­di­ence made it all the more spe­cial,’ said a spokesman.

Gar­den County Ra­dio were there to broad­cast the lively per­for­mance.

Pro­ceeds from a raf­fle on the night will go to Lak­ers, sup­port­ing chil­dren and adults with spe­cial needs. Bray Gospel Choir is a non-de­nom­i­na­tional group of singers with a pas­sion for gospel and soul mu­sic. Their group was cre­ated in Jan­uary 2009 by four friends, with var­i­ous mu­si­cal back­grounds. Their mag­nif­i­cent reper­toire in­cludes ev­ery­thing from pop and rock mu­sic to gospel and spir­i­tual stan­dards as well as soul and hip hop.

The singers and mu­si­cal di­rec­tor work ex­tremely hard, with rehearsals each week.

One of the high­lights of their ca­reer as a choir will have been per­form­ing along­side Euro­vi­sion hero Johnny Lo­gan, to sup­port the ‘Lean on Me’ cam­paign on Dublin’s Grafton Street.
