For 26 years, the Harlem Gospel Choir has kept rollicking praise songs fresh with modern musical influences and collaborations with such diverse entertainers as Bono, Lyle Lovett, and André Rieu. During Good Friday and Easter Sunday concerts, soloists belt out virtuosic renditions of traditional African-American gospel songs, backed by a full band and strikingly choreographed chorus. The singers—drawn from churches throughout Harlem and the surrounding New York area—often build their connection with the crowd by inviting audience members up on stage to join the joyful sound.
The seven members of Tainted Love transport audiences back to the ’80s as they shred, snarl, and croon through indelible rockers and ballads alike. Their nostalgia-infused song list includes such beloved hits as Queen’s “We Are the Champions,” AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” and Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America” speech. A three-strong frontline of vocalists gives the band the power to convincingly evoke everyone from Cyndi Lauper to Gordon Gano.
