These are challenging times in so many ways, but coming together, even in a virtual world, our diverse group has pulled off the impossible, a gift to the world.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) November 17, 2020
America’s Got Talent’s Golden Buzzer-winning vocal sensation Angel City Chorale will kick off the merry and jumpstart the joy with their virtual holiday concert “It’s Not the Holidays ‘til the Angels Sing” premiering globally on December 12, 2020 at 6:00pm PST. Although 2020 has been a year unlike any other, Angel City Chorale has been hard at work rehearsing remotely to make sure the holiday season happens!
“Give in to a pandemic? Who, us? We’ve been working our socially distanced butts and larynxes off for months to create something truly unique and memorable. Our fans in Los Angeles and around the world should put a pin in this date because you are not going to want to miss this,” exclaimed Sue Fink, Artistic Director.
Most recently, Angel City Chorale competed on NBC’s top-rated talent competition America’s Got Talent, making it all the way to the Semi-Finals. Host Simon Cowell declared after one Angel City Chorale appearance, “If I had died during this performance and this is heaven, then I am happy because that's what it felt like."
Angel City Chorale earned the coveted Golden Buzzer, touching nearly 20 million viewers with their rich sound and compelling message of unity and diversity.
Angel City Chorale has also performed at venues throughout Los Angeles, the United States and around the world. The choir has appeared on national and local television and worked with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Luther Vandross, and Natasha Bedingfield. They have been performing their joyful holiday concerts live to rapturous, sold-out crowds in Los Angeles for over twenty-five years.
Just in case anyone thought the holidays might be scaled back or cancelled altogether, Angel City Chorale is here to demonstrate otherwise. This year, the ensemble of 130 diverse voices invites a worldwide audience to their virtual celebration concert, premiering Saturday, December 12 at 6:00 PM PST.
“We are opening up our hearts to the world and welcoming a celebration of song into everyone’s home,” says Sue Fink, Artistic Director. “These are challenging times in so many ways, but coming together, even in a virtual world, our diverse group has pulled off the impossible, a gift to the world.”
This special and beautifully produced concert event will beam holiday joy to homes everywhere as artistic director Sue Fink leads the chorale in a diverse selection of holiday songs. From classic Christmas songs to an original Hanukkah song, a Swahili Christmas song written by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin and of course a sing-along, this concert will have something for everybody.
The concert is being offered free of charge as a gift to the world.
As a California non-profit public benefit corporation and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of diverse and volunteer members, Angel City Chorale is accepting tax-deductible donations in lieu of ticket purchases.
In addition, Angel City Chorale will host a special pre-premiere event for those who donate $50 or more—a special Live Backstage connection with Sue Fink, from 5:15-5:45pm PST. Fink will share the journey of Angel City Chorale as they prepare to spread holiday joy through devices across the world.
The top 30 donors who donate $300 or more will be invited to join the Live Sue’s After Party immediately following the premiere to celebrate with special guests, surprise videos and question and answers with Sue herself. Listen to the stories, journeys, and obstacles the group encountered and overcame through song and heart.
