Besi Besemar March 18, 2019

A joint University of Brighton/Sussex choir has reached the finals of the 2019 University Gospel Choir of the Year.

THE ‘Sound of Zion’ choir will be competing against seven other university gospel choirs at Oasis House, Croydon, on April 6.

Organisers describe the event as ‘Sister Act meets X Factor’, adding: “It will have you up on your feet and singing your way out of the venue”.

Judges include The Voice contestant Emmanuel Smith and Karen Gibson from the Kingdom Choir which sang at the wedding of the Prince and Princess of Sussex.

University Gospel Choir of the Year is a voluntary organisation “providing an unprecedented platform for university gospel choirs across the UK to develop and showcase their musical abilities”.
