|Dublin Gospel Choir|
|Also known as||DGC|
The choir was originally founded as a school choir in Dublin's inner city in 1996, and perform frequently, including at corporate and charity events. The choir have performed annually at Ireland's boutique festival, the Electric Picnic, appearing on the event's main stage for 6 years running. They have also performed to a sell-out 82,000 crowd at Croke Park in 2008. The choir has shared the stage with artists such as Rod Stewart, John Legend, Damien Rice, The Chieftains, Stevie Wonder, Cathy Davey and Westlife.
The choir also featured (along with Chris de Burgh) on a special New Year's Day BBC Songs of Praise programme which was broadcast to over 35 million viewers worldwide. Collaborations with people like Damien Rice and Paddy Casey have also won them a much younger audience and one that remains a large part of their audience at shows right across Ireland. They were also invited by Rod Stewart to join him for two great nights at the RDS.
