ABOUT THE MELBOURNE GOSPEL CHOIR




The Melbourne Gospel Choir is Australia's most sought after gospel group for TV appearances and backing vocals for international artists. They regularly appear on many TV shows such as the Carols By Candlelight, AFL Grand Final, Dancing With the Stars, The Logies, It Takes Two, Starstruck, Good Friday Appeal, and previously on Hey Hey It's Saturday and In Melbourne Tonight.


The Melbourne Gospel Choir has backed such artists as Delta Goodrem, Westlife, Guy Sebastian, UK star James Morrison, Marina Prior, Marcia Hines, Natalie Basingthwaite, Reba McIntyre, Nana Mousokuri, Jon Stevens, Dame Edna, Vanessa Amorosi, Silvie Paladino and David Campbell, and many others.


The Melbourne Gospel Choir actually comprises of about 10 to 12 very talented members in their own right, including numerous TV performers, theatre stars, and well known professional singers from around Melbourne, and they combine to make up this fantastic group.


Having performed with many different stars for the last ten years on Channel Nine's national TV event, Carols by Candlelight, in 2006 and 2014 The Melbourne Gospel Choir performed as a feature act, singing their version of Joyful Joyful (which has had almost 300,000 YouTube hits) and, in 2014, a moving version of "That's Christmas To Me".


The Melbourne Gospel Choir released its first Album a number of years ago, a very classy Christmas album called “Our Christmas Prayer”, featuring Australia’s leading lady Miss Marina Prior and renowned Gospel artist Roma Waterman, and they have recently added their heavenly vocal touch to 8 tracks on Marcia Hines' CD “Life”.
