THE MOUNT UNITY CHOIR & EARL BYNUM

Earl Bynum produttore, autore, insegnante torna in Italia con The Mount Unity Choir, parte integrante della Mount Lebanon Baptist Church importante chiesa battista della Virginia attiva in numerose attività culturali, sociali e filantropiche. Membro del Gospel Announcers Guild of the Gospel Music Workshop of America e della Backstage Committee-GMWA, Bynum è uno dei più attivi animatori della scena Gospel della Virginia. Il coro si è formato in seno alla Mount Lebanon Baptist Church che oggi è considerata l’epicentro

della confessione battista in Virginia e che esprime un elevato potenziale artistico con il proprio settore di educazione musicale basato a Norfolk e chiamato “The Mount”. La performance del coro si dimostra un’autentica testimonianza di vibrante e sentita condivisione, di preghiera appassionatamente partecipata. Un perfetto mix di molteplici influenze di gospel tradizionale, contemporaneo e arrangiamenti anche vicini al jazz, sapientemente dosati e proposti con energia e grande maestria. In molte occasioni ospite d’onore

alla trasmissione dedicata al gospel Bobby Jones Gospel Show su BET Television, con il loro ultimo CD/DVD il Mount Unity Choir ha vinto l’importante riconoscimento come “Best Church Choir” al Neighborhood Awards 2013 ed ha vinto il prestigioso Stellar Awards 2014 come “Best Contemporary Gospel Choir of the year”.
