Today Sunday 29 January 2023, there is a new episode of Songs of Praise.
Gospel Choir of the Year – Final Mark De-Lisser hosts the grand finale of Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year 2023. Five of the top amateur choirs in the UK performed last week at Manchester’s The Monastery. This week is their second chance to wow the three celebrity judges: TV’s favourite choir teacher Gareth Malone; actress, performer, and queen of soul Mica Paris; and MOBO award-winning gospel artist and Christian rapper Guvna B.
Each choir sings a gospel tune of its own choosing: The Holy, Holy, Holy is sung by the Belfast Community Gospel Choir, Never Alone is performed by the BIMM Birmingham Gospel Choir, an African Medley is presented by the EAGA Gospel Choir of Leicester, the Blessing of Abraham is sung by the G Choir of Hull, and the I Almost Let Go is performed by the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir. The judges have a tough choice ahead of them, but only one choir can win Gospel Choir of the Year.
