Performers: Harlem Gospel Choir, one of the most lauded groups in gospel music. Even Catholicism’s Pope John Paul II has said, on listening to them, that “this is more than a spectacle, it is a sensation!” Such is the shared experience among the hundreds of thousands of spectators that have been astounded and left flabbergasted by the experience of listening to them live.
Preview: The well-known Harlem Gospel Choir lands in Barcelona with their new set performance, a tribute to Beyoncé that combines the popular, R&B and hiphop tunes of the North American singer with the classics of the African-American spiritual. The group, which counts a total of 65 members though on tours only 9 travel with keyboard and instrumental support, will perform next Tuesday in La Sala BARTS of Barcelona, as part of the Barcelona Internacional Festival of Jazz.
