OVERVIEW

Following their show-stopping performance of "Stand By Me" at the Royal Wedding in May 2018, London’s The Kingdom Choir will bring their infectious joy and inspiration across the Atlantic for a major North American tour in Autumn 2019. Founded in 1994 by award-winning conductor Karen Gibson, the choir draws from various Christian traditions and is dedicated to creating a sound that reflects the community they share through their warm energy and enthusiastic performances. The Choir’s rendition of "Stand By Me" went straight to the top of the Billboard charts and this coming November they will be releasing their first full length album worldwide on Sony Music. Their success at the Royal Wedding has already seen them on several UK and American television appearances including ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning. Karen Gibson, an award-winning choir conductor and workshop leader, is a powerhouse of inspiration and energy. Known for the high quality of her work, Karen’s experience is extensive. She has been involved with vocal groups and choirs for over 25 years, conducting gospel workshops across the UK and Europe as well as Nigeria, Japan, Zimbabwe, Rwanda and the USA. She has been instrumental in drawing together and conducting some of the most prestigious large-scale choirs for a variety of gospel and community initiatives. Karen has also run workshops for aspiring gospel conductors in the UK, Poland, Norway and Italy.
