The ensemble built on their worldwide fame later that same year when Coca-Cola tapped them to sing “Holidays Are Coming” for their Christmas ad. Gibson founded the group in 1994 with a mission to form a choir that draws from various gospel traditions and creates a sound that reflects the community they share. Their warm energy and enthusiastic performance will have you feeling all the feels, making joyful noise, and dancing in your seat.
