  Howard Gospel Choir
Performed by: Howard Gospel Choir
Formed on the campus of Howard University in 1968, the Howard Gospel Choir (HGC) is a body of students, alumni and community members dedicated to using the gift of music to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. As the first college choir of its kind in the world, HGC is a trailblazer for all gospel music ministries on collegiate campuses across the globe. From the outset, the Howard Gospel Choir has been in constant demand. HGC has been blessed to share the stage with a number of musical luminaries including Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, Fantasia and Patti LaBelle. Additionally, HGC has performed at functions that have featured prominent public figures such as President Barack Obama and Ms. Oprah Winfrey. The choir has also been blessed to receive both national exposure, having appeared from coast to coast within the continental United States, and international exposure, having served as cultural ambassadors to the countries of Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Georgia, Italy, Montenegro, Slovakia, Sweden, Ukraine and the Caribbean island of Barbados. On these tours, they have headlined high-profile concerts in a variety of venues, participated in cultural exchange activities and conducted a number of master classes discussing various vocal exercises and the history of Gospel Music. The choir is currently under the direction of Reginald Golden, a fine graduate of Howard University’s Department of Music from Cleveland, OH. With such a rich legacy of excellence, the Howard Gospel Choir, a beacon light in the Howard University community, will continue to fulfill its calling to the world using Christ centered music as a means of healing, restoration and empowerment.
