Catapulted into stardom by its enrapturing performance at the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the Kingdom Choir makes its Duke Performances debut with its distinctive blend of gospel and pop music. Although the ensemble has been singing since 1994, its royal wedding performance amazed millions of viewers worldwide and laid the ground for a record deal with Sony Music.

Led by Karen Gibson, Britain’s “godmother of gospel,” the Kingdom Choir represents the best of the thriving British gospel tradition, and the effects of its performances stretch beyond purely musical events — it builds community with its singing. Kingdom Choir will fill its program at the iconic Duke Chapel with its characteristic arrangements of modern pop and classic gospel songs, including its show-stopping rendition of “Stand By Me.”
