Gospel choir from Stratford to raise money for Grenfell Tower Fund

Ian Hughes 21st Oct, 2017

A GOSPEL choir from Stratford will be raising their voices to raise money for the Grenfell Tower Fund.

The Simon Kemp Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will be taking part in Gospel for Grenfell at Notting Hill Methodist Church in London on Saturday October 28. The 45-strong choir will be joined by a rhythm section and horns to deliver an evening of gospel and soul music.

The show is free to attend with voluntary donations going to support the community. So far, the fund has distributed over £24,000 directly to Grenfell families, along with tonnes of food and clothing.

Musical director and arranger Simon said: “Music of all kinds, especially glorious gospel and stirring soul, has the potential to move both the feet and the heart. We’re looking forward to taking those songs that everyone knows and loves, and creating an epic evening in memory of those who lost their lives and in support of survivors.”

The musicians and singers are fresh from a show at Liverpool’s Bombed Out Church, where they performed the Beatles’ iconic Sgt Pepper album to mark its 50th anniversary.

The concert, co-ordinated by the London District of the Methodist Church, starts at 7pm.
