Gospel Challenge gives inspired amateurs the chance to live a musical dream.
Mahalia Jackson. Sam Cooke. The Blind Boys of Alabama. Over the decades, many of North America’s most gifted singers have come from the world of gospel music. Now, some ordinary Canadians have the chance to add their own voices to this rich tradition.
In Gospel Challenge, aspiring gospel vocalists in three Canadian cities come together to live out a dream. Under the guidance of the country’s most acclaimed professional choir leaders, they will have just one week, from auditions to final bows, to prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime televised performance in front of a live audience.
In this special holiday episode, our three Gospel Challenge choirs pour heart and soul into performing a selection of Christmas favourites.
