The Late Show's Gospel Choir has been influenced by The Sounds of Blackness, The Institutional Radio Choir, Rev. James Cleveland, Shirley Caesar, and many other Gospel artists. They have performed with several celebrities on CBS TV's "LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN," such as Darlene Love, Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, Steve Martin, Martin Shore, as well as Mavis Staples & Brian McKnight at Madison Square Garden for People Magazine's 25th Anniversary Celebration.
The Choir was Special Guests of 30 Second's to Mars on MTV'S "MTV UNPLUGGED," and sang U2's hit, "WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAMES." They were featured on Burning Spear's CD, "JAH IS REAL," for which he won a Grammy in 2011.
