Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir has released Israel Houghton's inspirational modern gospel classic 'Rise Within Us' in the form of “sung scripture" created initially as an audio recording for Wandsworth Prison Radio in London.
Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir is a well-established London-based gospel choir, singing regularly in two central London churches and on BBC Radio. Before the C-19 lockdown, the choir recorded songs for BBC Radio 2's 'At the foot of the Cross'
Like everyone around the world we are following the restrictions and waiting as events develop over the coming days and weeks. We wanted to share some gospel songs in the hope that they will bring comfort and strength to our friends and supporters in these troubling and unsettled times.
The release of the annual Church of England Christmas Advert is fast becoming a key moment in the run up to Christmas and provides a refreshing alternative to the high street brands competing for our hard-earned cash!
I got carried away. I found myself transported to another dimension. Music gets past everything. It goes straight to the heart, goes straight to the spirit, and it does something. I think it brings life. - Karen Gibson
