Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir presents the final concert of their season, The Return of Soul Gospel, May 25th at Christ Church Cathedral. Good Noise will be joined by award-winning gospel singers Dawn Pemberton and Warren Dean Flandezin a high-energy celebration of gospel music that will have audiences raising the roof with pure joy and adoration.
“Our 15th season has been nothing short of spectacular,” says Gail Suderman, Artistic Director of Good Noise. “We decided to celebrate our success by bring together two of Canada’s most powerful gospel singers as guest artists for our grand finale. Dawn and Warren don’t get the chance to sing together very often, so to have them both available was a minor miracle, given their very busy performing schedules —and having them both on stage along with Good Noise and the Good Noise gospel band will be exhilarating beyond belief. The Return of Soul Gospel will be a concert like no other and audiences for these two performances will be on their feet singing right along with us!”
Good Noise, Pemberton, and Flandez will join forces in performances of the Reverend Al Green’s “Everything’s Gonna be Alright,” Stevie Wonder’s inspirational “Love’s In Need of Love Today” from his iconic album Songs in the Key of Love, and finally Gail Suderman’s unique arrangement of “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” inspired by the Al Green/Annie Lennox performance. Solo sets will be offered by both Pemberton and Flandez, and Good Noise will then perform classic gospel songs including “Lean on Me,” by Bill Withers, “Hosanna,” by Kirk Franklin, and “Souled Out” by contemporary gospel artist Bishop Hezekiah Walker who is the pastor of the prominent Brooklyn megachurch, Love Fellowship Tabernacle.
Accompanying Good Noise, Pemberton and Flandez in this season finale concert will be Michael Kalanj (Hammond B3), Laurence Mollerup (bass), Elliot Polsky (drums), Ingrid Stitt (saxophones), and Good Noise Artistic Director Gail Suderman (piano).
