True Worshippers - Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir Tags: true worshippers gospel mass choir agmc word life production new quality entertainment featured blog

In April 2004, Charles Moore, relocated to Bentonville Arkansas from Douglas, Georgia.  After 14 years with the Georgia Mass Choir, Charles went on the search for a similar choir to be a part of. However, there was none. During the following year, God inspired Charles to put together a Mass Choir for the State of Arkansas. 

After many months of resistance to this idea, Charles decided to follow this inspiration. From November 2006 to February 2007, after many phone call, emails and car trips across the state, the vision began to come together. A committee was formed which consisted of a very dedicated group of men and women and from there, the leg work began.

On March 17, 2007 the Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir held its first Workshop Concert at Valley Harvest Ministries in Bentonville. Approximately 132 voices came together from cities such as: Jonesboro, Ft. Smith, Pine Bluff, Bentonville, Springdale, Fayetteville, Siloam Springs, Rogers and Tulsa Oklahoma.

The DVD from the March 17th event was distributed to Bobby Jones, Savoy Records and EMTRO records. The choir received an invitation from Bobby Jones to appear in November 2007 at an event held in Hollywood, Florida for a new artist. The choir did not feel a release to attend this event and declined to do so. Several weeks later, Troy Sneed took a look at the project and came to NW Arkansas within 3 weeks to hear the choir in person. Less than one month later a marriage took place between T Records and the Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir.

We give God glory for his favor and look forward to a long term relationship with Troy Sneed and T Records.  Now we have three CD Projects! God is Good!

The Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir (AGMC) stands for diversity, tolerance and unity and spreads this message through its music. The choir is now a Arkansas institution known for its concerts throughout the state and the nation.  The choir has toured several states to include: Georgia, DC, Missouri, and appeared National C.O.G.I.C. Convention in Memphis Tennessee.

The AGMC performed on the prestigious 17th Annual Trumpet Awards Ceremony, January 2009 in Atlanta Georgia. The annual Trumpet Awards acknowledges the accomplishments of men and women who have significantly contributed to enhancing the quality of life for all…individuals and/or groups who augment the richness of this great global society by partnering with the cause of justice and equality of all.  The event featured well known celebrities such as Co-Host  of The View "Sherri Sheppard" ,  Actor from Law and Order "Anthony Anderson", Regina Bell, Raven Symone, Chris Tucker, and Pastor Paula White.

They also were selected to perform on the Black Entertainment Television's (BET)

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir - True Worship Music Tags: brooklyn tebernacle choir true worship music word life production new qulaity entertainment

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is directed by Carol Cymbala, the wife of Pastor Jim Cymbala. The 280-voice choir, which for the most part is composed of vocally untrained church members, has recorded three videos, three DVDs and numerous albums, winning five Dove Awards and six Grammy Awards. Their concert venues in New York City have included Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, and the Madison Square Garden Theater. They also had the honor of singing at the Billy Graham Crusades that were held in New York City’s Central Park and Flushing Meadows Park. The recognition that the choir has received has provided them with a wide open door for ministry in presenting the gospel message through music to people all over the world.

But the choir was not always such a large ensemble. It actually began with nine people in the mid-1970s. Soon the small choir became a vital part of the worship services of The Brooklyn Tabernacle. In the early 1980s Carol felt a desire to make a recording to bless the people of the congregation. When she had trouble finding enough material that would lift up the greatness of God, Carol began to write songs herself. The funds for the production of the first choir recording were raised by the choir members themselves who pre-sold albums to their friends and family members. The choir ended up raising enough funds to cover the rental of a large studio for one night, during which all of the sound tracks, vocals, and solos had to be recorded. What a joy it was for those early choir members to distribute that first album to their friends and loved ones!

After nearly thirty years of recordings and live performances, Carol and the choir continue to rely on the Lord for his grace and direction in their ministry. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is a highly unlikely group of people, a mixture of ethnic and economic backgrounds, in the heart of a city synonymous with coldness and decay. Made up of attorneys and former street people, nurses and ex-crack addicts, the choir is a unique cross section of humanity. Pastor Cymbala explains: “None of us would have met if it weren’t for Christ. Our backgrounds are just too diverse. But all of us have one thing in common: we have all been lifted up and changed by the power of Jesus Christ. So the choir sings, not about a mere theological doctrine, but about what has happened to them. It’s not just the lyrics of a song; it’s a reality to each of them.” Starting each rehearsal with prayer reinforces that principle as the choir asks the Lord to bless their music and anoint their songs for the services.

"I just want to see people drawn to Jesus Christ,” Carol Cymbala says, “I want the music to be the arrow that points them to him."
