The Kingdom Choir shot to fame when they performed Stand by Me at the Royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan last year.

Now they are on a UK tour and they need some local singers to perform with them when they come to Edinburgh. Children’s and youth choirs could be part of the performance by the gospel choir at the Usher Hall on 23 May.

To be in with a chance of performing with The Kingdom Choir, choirs must send a YouTube link to one of their performances and complete the application form HERE.

The Kingdom Choir

The choir was founded in 1994 London by award-winning conductor Karen Gibson. The singers, from in and around London, draw from various Christian traditions and are dedicated to creating a sound that demonstrates the community they share through their warm energy and enthusiastic performance. Prior to performing in front of almost two billion people at the Royal Wedding, the largest audience The Kingdom Choir had performed to was just 200 people.

Karen Gibson, conductor of The Kingdom Choir, said: “Being part of the Royal Wedding was such an honour and we were delighted to be part of such a prestigious national day of celebration.

“As we tour the UK in 2019, we can’t wait to meet people across the country – especially young singers.

“Last year was like an un-dreamt dream – one that you wouldn’t even consider, because you never thought it could happen to you. We want to share our experience and dreams, and hopefully inspire a new generation of singers.”
