Overview

Alvin Darling assembled the Celebration Choir from community choirs in the New York and New Jersey area. Instead of taking the choir in a conempotary gospel direction, Darling led them toward traditional sounds, and their debut album, Why Not Pray, flourishes because of it. Divided between original material and classic songs, Why Not Pray is an exhilarating listen, demonstrating that the choir is a sensational ensemble and Darling a terrific leader. Anyone thinking that they don't make gospel like they used to should check out the Celebration Choir -- they, and their debut Why Not Pray, do not disappoint.
