Legendary Chicago house DJ Frankie Knuckles once astutely described house music as ‘church for people who have fallen from grace’ – and tonight is a chance to hear just what he meant. An outstanding collection of singers and musicians, London’s House Gospel Choir marry the spirituality of church music with the euphoria of the dancefloor. For MIF17, the choir will be elevating some of the biggest house music hits of the 1990s into a joyful gospel set: come and give thanks at MIF17 as this electrifying group raise the Pavilion Theatre roof.
