They've been called “Angels in Harlem.” And it's a pretty appropriate tag. Using their heavenly, note-blending voices, members of the Harlem Gospel Choir lift the spirit, touch the soul and share the joy of their faith. And, hallelujah, they are helping to preserve a form of music that has spoken to audiences beyond sacred places - influencing jazz, blues, soul, country and rock. For more than two decades, the Harlem Gospel Choir has shared its high-energy, hand-clapping, inspirational performances with people all over the world.

It was a lovingly maternal push that helped a young Clay Aiken realize that maybe he should share his voice with others. He'll be doing just that Saturday night when he makes a stop at the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania as part of his “Joyful Noise” tour. As a child, Aiken said he was always singing. “My mom said I was singing before I was even talking,” he said during a telephone interview from New York City. But by the time he was in middle school, he didn't want to participate in choir.

Voices filled Five Forks Church north of Waynesboro on Sunday during a visit from the 160-member National Christian Choir. Audience members filled the auditorium and spilled into the hallway for the performance featuring contemporary Christian music, hymn arrangements, gospel songs and a cappella moments. “It's more of a worship service rather than a concert where the audience sits detached,” said Kathy Bowman, director of music and ministries for the choir. Started in 1984, The National Christian Choir rehearses weekly in Rockville, Md., during the school year.
