“An international icon of gospel, American singer Linda Lee Hopkins celebrates the thirty-five-year anniversary of her career this year. Though she rose to fame as the choir director and artistic director of “The 100 Voices of Gospel” for ten years and is known for her collaborations with some of the most prestigious singers (Ray Charles, Gloria Gaynor, Percy Sledge, Al Jarreau, Prince…), she is also famous for her charisma and stage presence beyond compare.
For this amazing anniversary, Linda Lee Hopkins produced two albums, “The Soul of Gospel” and “The Road Ahead” featuring personal compositions. She invites us on an exceptional musical journey that finds it heart in gospel sounds, accompanied by the Spirit and Truth Singers, gathering for the occasion the biggest names of French and US gospel.
A spectacular and festive evening, a true consecration of gospel by masters of the genre, in the vibrant Saint-Sulpice church.”
