Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier - Place des Arts Book

Acclaimed conductor Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir are coming back to Montreal for a stop at Place des Arts, bringing with them their inspiring gospel music that has been thrilling England for the past 30 years.

Their meteoric rise has put them on stages around the world, where they have performed alongside such artists as Elton John, Barbra Streisand, and the Spice Girls, among others. Their path to global fame began with a legendary appearance at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with a noted performance of the hit “Stand by Me” during the ceremony. The London-based choir will be venturing away from home to bring us that same contagious energy and enthusiasm, with the artists presenting an all-new performance as they come through town: a show that celebrates 3 decades of performing—to mostly sold-out crowds!

A blend of traditional gospel and contemporary music, a style that’s a perfect complement to both classics and pop. Hear the choir’s thunderous takes on songs by world-renowned artists, from Aretha Franklin to Stevie Wonder, Beyonce to Lauryn Hill. Get ready to experience “the choir sing from the heart, but move charismatically from the hips and shoulders to spread their message,” as Go London has said.
