The Kingdom Choir Brings Light and Wisdom to Glen Ellyn


Byline: Submitted by Natalia Dagenhart

"When the night has come, and the land is dark, and the moon is the only light we'll see. No, I won't be afraid! Oh, I won't be afraid, just as long as you stand, stand by me!" The words of the powerful song "Stand by me!" by Ben E. King shook the world on May 19, 2018 at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and American-born actress Meghan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex. This song was released fifty eight years ago and has been a favorite for decades, but it approached even a higher level of popularity after being brilliantly performed by The Kingdom Choir at the Royal Wedding. Millions of people watched it live, and this song enhanced that beautiful event with its extreme energy, beauty and wisdom.

Now, The Kingdom Choir is happy to enlighten the Chicago area with their strong and powerful voices. The concert featuring this electrifying vocal group will take place at the McAninch Arts Center located at 425 Fawell Boulevard in Glen Ellyn at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 6 as part of their international Stand By Me Tour.

Before I tell you more about this concert and this choir, I would like to share with you some of my memories. I remember that day -- May 19, 2018. I planned to watch the Royal Wedding and made sure that I had nothing else going on that day.

Every moment was unforgettable for me and for millions of people around the globe. I was staring at the dresses, hats and suits worn by nearly six hundred honorable guests who attended the Royal Wedding at St. George's Chapel that Saturday. I wanted to be there! Oh, well.

And then all of a sudden I heard those magnificent sounds. Yes, I heard this song before in my life, but it never gave me the same effect as this time. When one of the soloists started singing and when soon after that the rest of the singers sang along with him building together polished and beautiful vocal chords, I had goose bumps. Their presentation was so unique, magnificent and almost surreal, that I felt like the sounds of their voices enveloped me with their deep and strong timbres, accurate vocal technique, and touching voice production. The Kingdom Choir delivered to the entire world one of the basic ideas that all humans should remember forever -- stay united, support each other and complement each other with the sound of your voices, the movements of your souls, and with the warmth of your hearts.

The Kingdom Choir made it happen. It gave this song another life and another spin of popularity, as to many other songs that this beautiful choral organization performs around the globe. The talent of these singers shines brightly through their smiles, voices and eyes. Their Christian mission is big and important -- to spread hope, love to God and respect to each other through magnificent sounds of gospel music. …
