A TOP gospel choir that has been dubbed the ‘UK’s answer to Sister Act’ will be performing at a Wigan church.

Souls of Prophecy will be performing at St John’s Church, Pemberton, and choir leader Jay Kamiraz will be popping along to St John’s Primary School to perform and give a singing workshop.

Souls of Prophecy have been championed by music stars such as Paloma Faith and DJ Dr Fox as well as performing at the wedding ceremony of BBC Sport presenter, Jake Humphrey. They have also appeared on Eastenders, Holby City and Children in Need.

The choir perform a vast array of hits, infusing a modern style to the traditional gospel set up.

Organiser Stephen Southern said: “They have a varied repertoire and will be performing modern pop songs as well as the “Sister Act” style everybody associates with Gospel Choirs.

“St John’s has been attempting to modernise its worship style over the past six months by introducing a more appealing, family friendly type of morning service as an alternative to the more traditional style that has been practised over the previous 180 years of its history.

“We feel that the introduction of modern hymns and a more relaxed style will appeal to families with younger children which so far, has been proven as congregations at St John’s have risen at these monthly services.

“The choir leader, Jay Kamiraz, (a Princes’ Trust Ambassador) has already visited our Primary School to attend a singing workshop with the young children. With the success of this wonderfully, unique concert I would hope that we can work together in the future.”

Souls of Prophecy will be performing at St John’s Church, Pemberton, on Saturday April 28.
