The National Gospel Music Centre
Led by internationally renowned Gospel Choir Director Anu Omideyi, who will be joining us for 12 months to launch the project and building on our international reputation for Gospel Music, Liverpool Lighthouse will be developing a National Centre for Gospel Music. The NGMC will include a National Archive of Gospel Music, a project that will complement the work of the National Slavery Museum in Liverpool.
The aims of the NGMC are the promotion of Gospel Music to new audiences, development of new and existing Gospel Music artists and promoting understanding and awareness of the historic roots of Gospel Music.
Anu has recently worked with us on the Liverpool Community Choir project. This is a choir that was created over Zoom during lockdown to record the music from the Hillsborough Memorial Services, including well-loved gospel songs
