To celebrate Easter this Palm Sunday we welcome the first of our Gospel choirs in our UKGospel focus choir double bill - fittingly the local based Camden United Gospel Choir, part of the We Sing organisation will take to the UKSoulJam stage for their debut.

Continuing our UK Gospel Choir focus to celebrate Easter this Palm Sunday we welcome The East London Soul Singers Choir bringing their brand of Choral Soul & Gospel live & direct from East London.

a nice mix of Neo Soul, credible R&B & classic Jazz singing of the like Amy Winehouse might enjoy..
Maria is most definitely one to watch - be in the house to see her full live band before she surely blows up to bigger things.
