The Spirit of New Orleans Gospel Choir is a larger version that the Joyful Gospel Singers (JGS) have set up for their 2019 European tour. The historical essence of the city -the 9th Ward- is where the members of JGS were born physically and professionally. That’s why wherever they go they bring with them the music of their city, their second line rhythm, their funky pulse, their R&B sound, everything that defines gospel from the Joyful and New Orleans, Louisiana.

They started their career in the mid-1990s. Their first CD, Take Me, Use Me, was recorded in 1995 with New Orleans emblematic label Rampart Street Music, which also produced their latest release to date, 9th Ward Revival, songs shrouded in nostalgia that are dedicated to the world before Katrina.

The list of great artists JGS has worked with is endless and it includes some of the greatest like Yolanda Adams, Thelma Houston, Bryan Adams, Earth Wind & Fire, Kirk Franklin, New Orleans blues diva Marva Wright and the German pop band PUR.

They usually feature at gigs in Germany, Italy and Spain. They have sung at the Monterrey Jazz Festival and are a classic at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. This Little Light of MineDown by The RiversideAmazing Grace and The Old Rugged Cross are some other songs they sing in their concerts.
