Gospel Christmas HDTV x264-TVCDec 26
Singer and musical theatre star Beverley Knight and US jazz-soul-gospel singer Gregory Porter introduce a feast of uplifting festive music from the cream of the British gospel scene, at the church of St John at Hackney in London. It is a big Christmas singalong – gospel style!
The longstanding London Community Gospel Choir and the fresh and funky House Gospel Choir are joined by Mobo-nominated songstress Katy B, Lion King star Shaun Escoffery and vocal quintet Vadé, as well as contributions from the hosts – a transatlantic duo each with their feet firmly in gospel. Gospel classics are in the mix with traditional carols and popular songs given a gospel twist. Gregory Porter and Vadé combine on a stripped down version of the Johnny Mathis hit When A Child Is Born, Katy B brings a swinging sweetness to Silent Night, Shaun Escoffery sings his hero Donny Hathaway’s This Christmas and Beverley Knight delivers a barnstorming performance of modern gospel classic I Am Not Forgotten. By the time the cast combine for a rousing finale of O Come All Ye Faithful, the place is rocking.
