The University of Mississippi Gospel Choir

The University of Mississippi Gospel Choir

It started as the Black Student Union Choir in 1974. Today, it has emerged as the University of Mississippi Gospel Choir and, more importantly, the first college gospel choir to sign with a major gospel record label. This student run organization has faithfully sung the Lord's praises for the last 27 years. Generations of African American students have found fellowship, support, and inspiration as they have striven for musical and academic excellence at the University. From small wooden churches to grand concert halls, with the rich harmonies of African American spirituals and the mellow grooves of contemporary gospel, the choir sings praises to God from the heart. Drawing from a rich musical and spiritual heritage that came from Africa and found a new home in Mississippi, the choir brings its own contribution to the life and sounds of the University. Our testimony is that God breaks down barriers and gives visions that make lives and situations new. Our prayer is that we will continue to "Send Up the Praise," here at the University, the state of Mississippi and beyond.
