Gospel choir to play Isle of Wight gig

A top gospel choir from the mainland is set to play a show on the Isle of Wight, which those taking holidays on the island may be tempted to attend.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the London Community Gospel Choir will be visiting the island to perform at the Medina Theatre in Newport on Friday (November 19th 2010).

Known for television appearances as backing singers on programmes such as The X Factor and Later with Jools Holland, the group are said to be influenced by artists such as Bobby Womack and the O'Jays.

The news provider added that the gospel choir has sung with a diverse range of musicians on their tours, such as Gorillaz, Sir Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, James Brown and Madonna.

"It has also appeared regularly at Royal Variety Performances," said the newspaper.

The London Community Gospel Choir was founded in 1982 and was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the mayor of London six years ago.
