When I heard Gospel the first time...
Since November 2007 the “100%-Gospel-Workshop-Berlin“ takes place and Mrs Ingrid Arthur (soul singer, former singer of ”The Weather Girls” ) is leading the workshops.
About 100 voices (a mixture of professional singers, choir members and people, who sang Gospel, some for the first time in their lives) are rehearsing and learning songs together with well-known musicians.
Under her leadership and with the assistance of choirleaders coming from the US, people of all ages have learned to sing Gospel songs with so much love and passion
in a time frame of only one week, and were able to successfully perform the studied music at two final concerts.
This workshop is financed through low expenses of the workshop participants,
a small fee at one of the two concerts, as well as through free will donations
and of Ingrid Arthur herself.
