Kingdom Choir to perform at Invictus Games closing ceremony

THE KINGDOM CHOIR: The group's debut album will be released later this month

FOLLOWING THEIR show-stopping performance of Stand By Me at the Royal Wedding on May 19 2018, The Kingdom Choir have been announced to perform at the Closing Ceremony of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 on October 27 2018.

The Invictus Games, an international adaptive sporting event for wounded, injured and ill service men and women, both active duty and veteran, were founded by Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex in 2014.

The games use the healing power of sport to inspire recovery, support, rehabilitation and celebrate the crucial role played by family and friends.

The Kingdom Choir’s performance will come the day after the release of their debut album Stand By Me on Friday October 26 2018.

The album features the choir’s much-loved version of Stand By Me that they performed at this year’s Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The choir’s diverse album track list also includes captivating renditions of Beyoncé’s Halo, John Legend’s All Of Me as well as Stormzy’s Blinded By Your Grace Part 2. Also on the album is a brand new, emotionally powerful ballad written by members of The Kingdom Choir called Chases.

Award-winning conductor Karen Gibson founded the choir in 1994. The group of singers from in and around London draw from various Christian traditions and are dedicated to creating a sound that demonstrates the community they share through their warm energy and enthusiastic performance. Prior to performing in front of nearly 2 billion people at the Royal Wedding, the largest audience The Kingdom Choir had performed to was just 200 people.

The choir will also tour the UK in May 2019 with tickets on sale now. Their inaugural show at the Royal Albert hall will mark exactly one-year of their remarkable and mesmerising royal wedding performance.

The Kingdom Choir’s debut album will be released via Sony Music on Friday October 26 2018.
