Following their showstopping performance of “Stand by Me” at the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, London’s The Kingdom Choir will bring their infectious joy and inspiration across the Atlantic for a major North American tour.

Founded in 1994 by award-winning conductor Karen Gibson, the choir draws from various Christian traditions and is dedicated to creating a sound that reflects the community they share through their warm energy and enthusiastic performances. The Choir’s rendition of “Stand by Me” went straight to the top of the Billboard charts. They released their first album, Stand by Me, on Sony Music. Their success at the royal wedding has earned them several U.K. and American television appearances, including on ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning.

WPLG Local 10 anchor Calvin Hughes returns as the host of Free Gospel Sundays.
