Joey Gore says music is his calling. He was directing neighborhood kids to sing from the time he was 8 years old. As an adult, Joey is a pianist, music director, and the founder/director of Wilmington Celebration Choir. The Choir performs out of town more than in Wilmington, but Saturday night, 1/14, they are performing at Winter Park Presbyterian at 7:00pm.
The Wilmington Celebration Choir is not a "church choir," but a traveling gospel choir. Fifty to sixty voices perform Saturday night, including a range of gospel styles: Southern, African-American, Worship, and Anthem songs. Listen to Joey Gore above, including his spontaneous performance on WHQR's piano of "When We All Get to Heaven" and a snippet from the song "You Brought Us Out" on the Choir's latest album that will be performed on Saturday.
