The Georgetown Gospel Choir



Biography

THE GEORGETOWN GOSPEL CHOIR, made up of students and alumni of the University, has been in existence since 1980. The group's powerful ministry performs traditional and contemporary gospel music during worship services and concerts on campus and in the greater Washington, DC community. The choir is dedicated to Christian fellowship, spiritual growth, service and cultural enrichment. Director Leviticus Thomas will lead the group through "We Shall Overcome" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" accompanied by a jazz ensemble. A native of Florence, Alabama, LEVITICUS THOMAS has been playing the piano by ear since he was three years old. While matriculating at Alabama A&M University, he served as the president of the gospel choir for two years. After graduating, he continued to serve as director and pianist for various choirs and groups in the Huntsville area. The Lord then ordered his steps to Washington, DC, in 1997 as he later joined the Metropolitan BC family. God's gifts in Thomas have been used as he served as director, pianist and soloist at MBC. He is also a songwriter and member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. One of his compositions, John 3:16, was a featured selection that was ministered by the Washington Performing Arts Society Children of the Gospel at the Kennedy Center. Thomas is presently also the musician and director of choirs at Tabernacle BC in DC and Saint James AME in Fredrick, Maryland. In addition to these blessings, he recently offered his vocal talent on the background vocals for a song composed by Richard Smallwood on Karen Clark Sheard's recently released album.
