In the first half of November, Art BG will proudly present the most famous American gospel formation, Harlem Gospel Choir. For 20 years, this group has been travelling around the world to share a message of love, faith and inspiration with thousands of people. Its visit to Bulgaria is a part of the chorus’ Concert of Hope / Remembering Michael Jackson World Tour 2009/2010, the goal of which is to raise funds for children’s charities.

Harlem Gospel Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the choir while attending a celebration in honour of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The group is comprised of more than 70 members, ranging in age from 17 to 70 and presenting the finest singers and musicians from the New York City area. Its dynamic performances contribute to a better understanding of the Afro-American culture and the inspirational musical style known as gospel.

From 10 to 13 November, Allen Bailey himself will be in Bulgaria, together with nine singers and two musicians, led by Sistah Bee.

The Bulgarian tour dates and locations are:

10 Nov – Varna, Palace of Culture and Sport
11 Nov – Bourgas, Opera Bourgas
12 Nov – Sofia, National Palace of Culture (NDK), Hall 1
13 Nov – Plovdiv, International Fair Plovdiv, Palace 3
