Although we cannot escape the religious background of Gospel music, singing and moving (or dancing if you prefer) is good for you mentally, physically and spiritually. Gospel provides the ideal balance of both singing and movement to uplift your mood, your spirit and help you to bond with other people.
The East Cleveland Community Gospel Choir isn't about religion, it's about community, it's about us, it's about me, it's about you and the people around you. Happiness is infectious in the same way you cannot help smile at someone who is smiling at you!
Gospel is a way of communicating a message and this message can be what ever we want it to be.
Everyone sings, whether we are good at it or bad at it, we still do it. We sing in the shower, we sing when our favourite tune is on the radio, we sing when no one is around and we have all been caught at least once unexpectedly.
Singing is powerful, singing is emotional, singing is eclectic, singing is spiritual and no matter what the song is, the theme of it, the style of it, singing makes us feel good!
I want to join!
