LONDON, UK (CelebrityAccess) – If you were one of the nearly 2 billion people who tuned into the Royal Wedding back in May, you would have also witnessed an outstanding performance by The Kingdom Choir.
The London-based group, which was founded in 1994 by conductor Karen Gibson and managed by Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE at InterTalent, has now signed a major label deal with Sony Music UK.
Their debut album, which will include the group’s chart-topping rendition of “Stand By Me,” is slated for release on November 2.
In a statement announcing the release, Karen Gibson, said: “The Kingdom Choir are absolutely delighted with the journey of the past few months! It’s been a roller coaster, but we wouldn’t have it any other way – first, the honour of being able to sing at the Royal Wedding, and then the thrill of being signed to Sony! It’s like an un-dreamt dream – one that you wouldn’t even consider because you never thought it could happen to you. We’re very grateful and very excited about what’s to come in the next few months too…”
Nicola Tuer, COO, Sony Music UK, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to have signed The Kingdom Choir to Sony. Along with the rest of the world, we were stunned by their incredible performance at The Royal Wedding, so we jumped at the chance to sign them. The choir believe in love, music and power and we are excited to capture this on record for their fans across the globe.”
