They have not only delighted an audience in the Scala in Milan, but also the Pope at a Christmas Concert in the Vatican. As a result, the Original USA Gospel Singers will again be on a great tour through Europe and Austria in the autumn. The Black American gospel group, with its live band and spectacular light and stage show, brings the original feeling of the American gospel culture close to the audience and tells the whole story from its beginnings until today, from Mahalia Jackson to James Cleveland, from the influence of the Caribbean to the Christmas story. The group includes select top singers as well as outstanding soloists and musicians who offer their audience everything that makes gospel so amazingly beautiful: Emotionality, religiosity and pure joy of life.
In every single one of their performances, the USA Gospel Singers aim at bringing people together by the immense spiritual power of their songs. The active participation of the audience is also an important part of the show. Hand in hand, the audience experiences the incredible force of true gospel music. The emotions that build up during the performance will make the evening an event the audience will find difficult to forget.
