The Kingdom Choir have signed a major record deal with Sony Music UK, following their performance at the Royal Wedding earlier this year.

Founded in 1994 by conductor Karen Gibson and managed by Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE at InterTalent, the choir were joined by the Sony team at Kensington Palace to celebrate the deal. 

The group will go into the studio later this month to begin work on their debut album, which is set for release on November 2.

It will include the rendition of Stand By Me which went straight in at No.1 on the Billboard Gospel Songs Chart and has been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube.

Nicole Tuer, the Chief Operating Officer at Sony Music UK, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have signed The Kingdom Choir to Sony. Along with the rest of the world, we were stunned by their incredible performance at The Royal Wedding, so we jumped at the chance to sign them. The choir believe in love, music and power and we are excited to capture this on record for their fans across the globe.”

Karen Gibson, conductor of The Kingdom Choir, said: “The Kingdom Choir are absolutely delighted with the journey of the past few months! It’s been a roller coaster, but we wouldn’t have it any other way – first, the honour of being able to sing at the Royal Wedding, and then the thrill of being signed to Sony! It’s like an un-dreamt dream – one that you wouldn’t even consider, because you never thought it could happen to you. We’re very grateful and very excited about what’s to come in the next few months too…”
