The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is one of the preeminent gospel choirs in the world. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the renowned Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir is a gathering of the finest singers and musicians from various Black Churches in Harlem. Over the years, the Choir has performed with such famous artists as Bono, Sinead O'Connor, Simple Minds, Live, Robin Gibb, Kim Wilde, Lyle Lovett, Diana Ross, Harry Belafonte, Brooks and Dunn, Ashford & Simpson, Jimmy Cliff, and the Chieftains. The Choir has been featured on many TV shows, including "Top Chef," "The Colbert Report," "Good Morning America," "The Today Show," "Good Day New York," and the "Early Show." In 2008 the Choir performed for 60,000 people at Yankee Stadium for Pope Benedict XVI.

The Choir travels the globe, sharing its joy of faith through its music, and whenever possible, raising funds for children's charities. The Choir’s success led to it being granted a private audience with Pope John Paul II in 2003 in recognition of its work for charity around the world. The theme of every performance is bringing people and nations together and giving something back. Their songs of inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights. They will literally have you dancing on the stage.
