CHICAGO MASS CHOIR KICKS OFF SPAIN TOUR & GEARS UP FOR BRAND NEW SINGLE RELEASE
Nashville, TN – The multi-award winning Chicago Mass Choir is set to spend the Holiday Season in the picturesque country of Spain, as the renown musical entourage will tour 14 cities and perform 15 concert during December. This exciting tour marks the Choir’s first trip abroad since 2019 for the two-time Grammy and Dove Award finalist.
According to CMC President Feranda Williamson, the 2023 Tour, which marks the group’s 16th trip abroad, will feature many songs made famous by the Choir over the years, as well as a special tribute to the late, great BB King. “It has been truly a blessing to be able to enjoy so many tours abroad,” Williamson states. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our music ministry with our supporters in Spain as we close out this year. We will pay tribute to BB King by including many of the spirituals he recorded in our repertoire. We are so thankful to God for another opportunity to share the music ministry of the Chicago Mass Choir, and we are looking forward to a wonderful trip.”
