Days after his death, the Harlem Gospel Choir honored the purple-clad genius and musical innovator Prince with a performance of "Purple Rain" on Good Morning America. Now, they present an entire evening remembering his greatest hits. Prince integrated funk, rock, R&B, soul and pop into his numerous acclaimed songs, garnering seven Grammy Awards and selling over 100 million records worldwide. He also earned an Academy Award for the music in Purple Rain, a film about a rising music star grappling with romance, rivalry, and an abusive home. The most renowned gospel choir in America shares Prince's legacy and honors his talents in a night of soulful tribute at the B.B. King Blues Club in New York.

The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is the most renowned gospel choir in America and a preeminent gospel choir worldwide. It travels the globe, sharing the joy of faith through its music and raising funds for children's charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from Harlem's Black Churches and the New York/Tri-State area.

Harlem Gospel Choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, The Gorillaz, Andre Rieu and most recently Damon Albarn and Pharrell Williams. They have performed for three Presidents (President Obama, President Carter and President Nelson Mandela), two Popes (Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI) and have recorded with the likes of Sir Keith Richards, The Chieftains, and Trace Adkins.

Deeply rooted in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith - Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, Soul, and Rock-and-Roll...they all have origins in black gospel music. Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today.

The Harlem Gospel Choir's songs of gospel and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul and lift your spirit to angelic heights, with sounds that are unfettered, joyous, and inspirational. With every performance, the Choir shares the renaissance of Harlem's culture with the audience. Every performance will take your breath away!
