Where the Vocal Journey Began
Birmingham Community Gospel Choir, also known as BCGC, was founded in June 2005 and brings together singers of all ages and backgrounds from across the city. We are directed by experienced Singer and Song Writer, Maxine Brooks, who instills confidence, technique and skill in our members, which is brought to every event we perform at.
Since winning the title of BBC Songs Of Praise, ‘Gospel Choir Of the Year’ 2015, the choir have continued to go on from strength to strength. They were invited to perform in the worlds biggest pantomime production of Cinderella by Jon Conway productions, at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham. It was a spectacular event with a host of stars including Bradley Walsh & Paul O’Grady.
The choir has also been featured on various CDs such as “Dion Dublin’s Christmas” and Gareth Malone’s “A Great British Christmas.” They performed on ‘Oh Holy Night’ & ‘Keeping The Dream Alive’ before joining Gareth again in a choir ensemble for the BBC Sports Personality Awards Event. Here they added their unique gospel sound to Gareth’s original arrangement of David Bowie’s, ‘Heroes’, and sang in front of a backdrop of images of sporting heroes who had sadly passed away that year. Gareth again invited the choir to sing with him on his Birmingham tour date at the prestigious Symphony Hall in November 2017.
In addition to having been featured on numerous radio shows including Ed Doolan & Jeremy Vine, Television shows including BBC Songs Of Praise, The One Show and BBC Sports Personality Of The Year, the choir were winners of the BBC Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year award in 2015. The past few years have been very busy for BCGC!
