In 2014 The Southern Gospel Choir was excited to be invited to tour and perform in the USA, the birthplace of
African-American gospel music. Our tour had three main stops:
- In Dallas, Texas, we performed at The Potter's House Church, where the congregation regularly numbers about 45,000(!) with our long time friend and grammy-winning artist Myron Butler!
- From there we travelled to the small town of Tuskegee, Alabama, to soak up African-American history at the Tuskegee University and perform at the Greater St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church. We were also thrilled to sing with the wonderful Golden Voices Choir of the Tuskegee University - Go Tigers!
- And finally we headed to Los Angeles, California, to perform as a guest of Alvin Chea (of Take 6) at the Breath Of Life Seventh-Day Adventist Church, where the congregation is about 10,000 strong!
