Meghan and Harry: Now the wedding choir starts

The gospel choir, who made for a real goosebump moment at the wedding of Prince Harry (33) and Duchess Meghan (36) in May, has signed a record deal with Sony. That reports "Sky News". Before the performance at Windsor Castle, the "Kingdom Choir" had sung at most around 200 people.

The performance of "Stand By Me" at the royal wedding brought the choir but worldwide attention and a large number of fans. The Kingdom interpretation of the hit - which landed in the "Billboard" gospel charts in first place and has been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube - should of course also be found on the album. Allegedly, the work should begin soon.

Conductor Karen Gibson said everyone was "absolutely thrilled" by the "dreamlike" rise of the vocal group: "It was a roller coaster ride, but we would not have it any other way: First, the honor of being able to sing at the royal wedding, and then the sensation of being signed by Sony, "she is quoted by" Sky News "as saying," It's like a dream you would not dream of, because you never thought it would happen. " Kingdom wants to release the debut album in early November. An appearance in London should follow at the end of November.

'Stand by Me' performed by Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir - The Royal Wedding - BBC (June 2021).
