The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is one of the pre-eminent gospel choirs in the world. It travels the globe, sharing its joy of faith through its music, & raising funds for childrens charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the renowned Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir is a gathering of the finest singers and musicians from various Black Churches in Harlem.

The Choir has shared its message of love, peace and harmony for many years with thousands of people from various nations, backgrounds, and cultures. The Harlem Gospel Choir strives to make the world a more loving and peaceful place, and through its music and dynamic performance creates a better understanding of the African-American culture and the inspirational music called Gospel as it relates to the Black Church. The theme of every performance is bringing people & nations together & giving something back. The Choir's songs of gospel and inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights.

This year marks the Choir's 20th anniversary. In recognition of its ministry and its stellar role as "Cultural Ambassadors of Harlem", the Choir received proclamations from Congressman Charles Rangel; from Senator David Patterson; and from Mayor Michael Bloomberg who proclaimed the Choir's 20th anniversary, January 15, 2006 "Harlem Gospel Choir Day" in New York City!
