The LONDON AFRICAN GOSPEL CHOIR was co-founded by Crystal Hardwicke to help London's African community to promote the gospel, create a platform of excellence for African gospel singers and musicians, and popularise the African interpretations of gospel music.
The live repertoire on offer includes traditional and original songs from all regions in Africa in local languages and in English, but also incorporates interpretations of African American classics.
LONDON AFRICAN GOSPEL CHOIR's live shows range from 6 piece a cappella to a full blown 20 member band and choir. The dance choreography so much a part of the live show brings a unique and spectacular element to the performances.
Shows are adaptable to festivals, theatres, concert halls, corporate events, street events, weddings and funerals. The choir can also provide backing singers and musicians for third party recordings and performances.
Many venues, festivals and community events have found the choir able to bring an important element to their programming. Talk with us to see how we can best help you

"Thanks to your Bambelela section, the roof was pretty much lifted off the Guildhall rafters! What a pleasure and privilege to work with you and your wonderful choir."
"The evening was a great success, and the singers from the London African Gospel Choir added a wonderful atmosphere to the evening. They are incredible singers and it was a pleasure to hear them perform."
"We couldn't have been happier with the choir. They added exactly what we wanted to the day and we have had so many positive comments about their performance. The only sad thing was that you had to stop. We could have listened for hours!
Deirdre and Malcolm - Wedding
