You — and the world — watched in awe as the Kingdom Choir sang “Stand By Me” at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
They’ll sing it again, next month.
The British gospel group — whose stirring rendition of the Ben E. King classic led to a record deal with Sony — comes to Christ & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church on Saturday, November 2 (5 p.m.).
They’re on their first-ever North American tour. But mostly — since arriving in September — they’re playing big venues, like Hollywood Bowl.
They’ve booked only 2 intimate church venues. One was in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The other is Westport.
Christ & Holy Trinity director of music Michael Burnette is very excited. He replied “yes!” the moment he got an email from a booking agent, asking about interest.
The Kingdom Choir will sing a mixture of gospel, spiritual and pop tunes, Burdette says. They provide “a message of hope, and a brighter tomorrow.”
The choir’s debut CD is called “Stand By Me: 15 Songs of Love, Hope and Inspiration.”
In 2018, they inspired the royal couple, and the world.
Soon, they’ll do the same on Church Lane.
