Members of The Harlem Gospel Choir were invited to take part in Michael’s funeral service. Their founder, Allen Bailey, also toured with the Commodores when they opened for the Jackson 5 on a tour of the United States. ‘The Concert Of Hope’ is the name the choir has given to a tour which plans to visit Australia. ‘We Are The World’, ‘You Are Not Alone’ and ‘Billie Jean’ will be included in their repertoire along with some of the world’s best known Gospel music.
The tour begins in Melbourne on April 30th, followed by dates in Adelaide, Perth, the Gold Coast and Sydney. It will conclude the tour on May 11th in Newcastle.
