Limerick Gospel choir will be playing on Wednesday 12th November at 8pm alongside the celebrated Harlem Gospel Choir in the Glor Theatre in Ennis, Co Clare.
Having performed for Nelson Mandela at the Yankee Stadium, for the Pope in Central Park, with the Chieftains on their US tour and on U2’s “Rattle and Hum” album, film and tour, the Harlem Gospel Choir will, once again, return to Ireland for an extensive tour.

The Choir draws its core singers from various black churches in the Harlem community, who share the common aim of bringing about a better understanding of African/American culture. Founder member, Allen Bailey has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years.
He was promotional director for major recording artists including Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores, Prince, Michael Jackson, Mr. T, and Isaac Hayes. He was chairman for the Martin Luther King Holiday campaign .
Their songs of inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights. This is not to be missed and promises to sell out quickly.
