Belfast Community Gospel Choir is Northern Ireland’s first and only multicultural gospel choir.
Our story began back in 2009, when choir director Marie Lacey decided to act on her dream to create a gospel choir for Northern Ireland. After putting out a call for interested singers, she found herself inundated with people eager to become part of Northern Ireland’s first community gospel choir.
The first auditions saw 67 singers form the choir and since then, we have grown to a choir of over 100 auditioned singers, performing to audiences all over Northern Ireland (and beyond!)
Since its formation, the choir has performed at the London Olympics, sang for the Queen at Titanic Belfast, performed on Songs of Praise, appeared on stage with Aled Jones and much, much more.
But as proud as we are of the grand performances in exciting places, for the choir, every performance is special. We sing because we love it and we want you to love it to. That’s why more we took on the ambitious aim of coming together virtually, until we can perform in person again. More than 100 of our singers, as well as our musicians, collaborated to bring this powerful and uplifting version of a classic – Bridge Over Troubled Water.
