The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir was founded in 1986 and is led by Emmy-winning Artistic Director Terrance Kelly, who is an accomplished director, composer, arranger and popular soloist with an operatic range and joyous emotional feel. They deliver good news – the power and glory of 55 talented singers blending their voices together in rapturous harmony on gospel standards, traditional spirituals, and their own original praise songs.
