House Gospel Choir. The Original House Meets Gospel Experience - Church!
Meet the choir that house built.
The late great Frankie Knuckles once said of house music: “It’s church for people that have fallen from grace.” Anyone who has been caught up in the rapture of a true house classic can testify to its power to unify and uplift.
House Gospel Choir is the place where spirituality and the euphoria of the dancefloor come together. Founded by Creative Producer & vocalist Natalie Maddix, HGC is a home for anyone who has ever found themselves lost in the music at a festival, in a nightclub… or canned in on a tube on the way to work.
Over the past five years House Gospel Choir have played festivals all over the UK, including Glastonbury, Bestival and British Summertime Hyde Park and have been a part of sessions and live performances with homegrown and international talent such as Annie Mac, Candi Staton, MNEK, Tom Jones, Beverley Knight, Jessie Ware, Loyle Carner, Ghetts, Gregory Porter, Stormzy, Labrinth, Gorgon City, Jax Jones & Kylie Minogue to name a few.
House Gospel Choir released their highly anticipated debut single on Island Records, ‘Battle’, a re-work of UK Garage legend Wookie’s 2000 classic. The track features brand new production and instrumentation by Wookie himself, who personally approached the choir when he watched them perform their version at Southport Weekender Festival.
HGC is built on the understanding that we can’t all speak at the same time and be heard but we can sing together as one voice and be understood. This mantra extends to the audience who are referred to as the ‘House Guests’ and are welcomed to let loose on the dancefloor where “We Are One”. House Gospel Choir’s live shows are amped up even further by a full house band and DJ, creating an effortless live fusion of the biggest house and gospel tunes that never fail to raise the roof!
House Gospel Choir have sold out headline London shows at Jazz Café, Islington Assembly Hall and most recently KOKO with rave reviews “House Gospel Choir represent a living, breathing, sparkling, shape cutting, stunning, brilliant and beautifully harmonious vision of Britain’s past, present and future”.
