Breaking Down Barriers 2016 – Gospel Concert

Breaking Down Barriers 2016

Our Breaking Down Barriers Gospel Concert has arrived again for the second time!

Coming in November is another evening that promises to carry good news, hope and encouragement through gospel music for all ages.

Our aim is to increase awareness of the dire homelessness situation in Greater Manchester whilst carrying a message of hope. Our heart is that everyone can be involved in transforming and affecting society through unity and love which crosses all barriers. Any profit from the concert will go to build the work of Homes of Hope as we look towards our next house.

AMC Gospel Choir was founded in Birmingham in 1993 by Audrey Mattis as a university project. They have been together ever since, adding to their Midlands base another group of extremely, talented singers based in the North-West of the country, when Audrey moved there over 15 years ago. They currently sing their unique style of jazzy-styled gospel and other popular styles across the year at a variety of private and public events. “We take our gospel to the people, whether they are expecting it or not…and then they fall in love with the music and begin to understand why we HAVE to sing praises unto God” says Audrey.
