First came the Beatles, then Cilla Black, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Echo and the Bunnymen, the La’s and now the Love & Joy Gospel Choir. This vibrant, multi-racial choir, based at Liverpool’s Temple of Praise, is the latest incarnation of the Merseysound.
It has performed at venues across the country and overseas, as well as appearing on BBC, Granada, and Sky TV. The choir was heavily involved in Liverpool’s Capital of Culture bid, including writing the music for the theme song “We’ve got the go” which it performed at the House of Commons.
The group has even worked with Liverpool FC, releasing a specially extended version of “You’ll never walk alone” – and you don’t get more Scouse than that!
