MEET THE CHOIR THAT HOUSE BUILT
The late great Frankie Knuckles once called house music: “church for people that have fallen from grace.” Anyone who has been caught up in the rapture of a true house classic can testify to its power to unify and uplift.
House Gospel Choir is the place where spirituality and the euphoria of the dancefloor come together. Founded by Creative Producer & vocalist Natalie Maddix, HGC is a voice for those that can sing… but don’t always know the words! It’s a home for anyone who has ever found themselves lost in music at a festival, or in a night club… or on the tube on the way to work.
The choir brings together outstanding singers, all passionate about music and performance and dedicated to giving a great show. Directed by the seasoned powerhouse vocalist, ShezAr; HGC’s leaders have a history of working with choirs and have sessioned and toured with the likes of The Kooks, MNEK, Scissor Sisters, Wretch 32, Naughty Boy, Gorgon City, Stormzy and Labrinth – to name a few. House Choir shows are amped up even further by DJ Fonti, formerly of the legendary Heartless Crew, and his effortless mixing and blending of the biggest tunes House & Garage tunes. Percussion from Dezy Bongo and live keyboards by Stevie Mac combine with the troupe to create an authentic House meets Gospel sound that never fails to raise the roof.
Throughout 2014 HGC delivered rousing sets at Glastonbury, Latitude Festival and Buckingham Palace, as well as sold out shows at the ACE Hotel Shoreditch as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival and now they are coming to Brighton for LoveBN1Fest.
