THE LATE SHOW’S GOSPEL CHOIR RELEASES NEW CD
The Late Show’s Gospel Choir, known as “The Best A Cappella Choir in the U.S.A.!” has been singing for the past 18 years and they’ve been seen by millions of viewers on TV worldwide. Ironically, this choir was first formed for the popular comedy show, CBS TV’s “LATE SHOW With DAVID LETTERMAN,” in October, ’95, when Paul Shaffer, Musical Director of the show asked his then production assistant, Jill Leiderman, to contact Gospel singer, Lady Peachena, about forming a choir to film a video for the show. But upon hearing the choir’s incredible voices, Paul invited them to sing live on “THE LATE SHOW” the very next night.
Since then, The Late Show’s Gospel Choir has performed on “THE LATE SHOW,” more than a dozen times over the years as featured performers, and accompanying artists like Gloria Estefan, Enrique Iglesias, Darlene Love, Mavis Staples, Martin Shore & Steve Martin.
In ’98, The Late Show’s Gospel Choir made history when they were featured in Crest’s Toothpaste Pump national TV commercial singing the international hit, “OH HAPPY DAY!” So, it’s no surprise that The Late Show’s Gospel Choir strives to take Gospel music to higher heights! Their awesome harmonies and soulful renditions of old Negro Spirituals and hymns sung a cappella style are simply amazing! And, their interpretations of popular traditional and Urban Gospel songs will have you dancing in your seats!
The Late Show’s Gospel Choir has sung in powerful concerts all over America. In 2012, this spirited, innovative choir the choir was featured on MTV’S “MTV UNPLUGGED” with hot rock band, 30 SECONDS TO MARS, singing U2’s former hit, “WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAMES.” This choir also went on two outstanding sold-out tours of Spain where enthusiastic crowds gave them double standing ovations. Fans didn’t want them to leave the stage! Incredible adoration from people who can’t even speak English, but loved Gospel music!
For 4 consecutive years, The Late Show’s Gospel Choir has won Gigmasters’ Rising Star Award, for receiving the most gigs online as well as earning the most revenue as a choir. The choir also sings at weddings, parties, and at corporate events all over the East Coast.
