THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
We reached our goal but keep going! Next, we would like to have a Concert of presentation ... We still have a few days to make it
GOSPEL GLORIA is made up of members from different Evangelical Churches of the Valencian Community (Spain), though we have been in many places in the rest of the country sharing this special music.
We don't make a living off music but we put all our eagerness into what we do because we believe it's worth it.
Gospel is spiritual music about God and the hope that we have, as believers, of an eternal life. This produces intense feelings and we know music is a great way to express what we believe and try to live out each day. It is not just music, it is pure experience.

THE PROJECT - RECORDING A NEW CD
Over the last 20 years we have been primarily dedicated to raising awareness of this rich musical and spiritual legacy, through concerts and direct contact with the public. We released two live albums in 1999 and 2001, but nothing more… until now!
Our repertoire has always been based on versions of great songs sung by other choirs and artists of prestige, however adapted to our character by adding the “Gloria touch”, but now we feel the need to express ourselves with our own sound. We now present an album full of new tracks, composed and arranged by ourselves. We could say that it is a record of purely Spanish Gospel.
What we want to do is tell our experiences in our own words, our chords and melodies and our personal way of understanding Gospel.

PRODUCTION - JOAKIM ARENIUS
We are not alone in this adventure; we have sought the best possible help, and have, miraculously, had at our disposal the composer and producer Joakim Arenius.
Joakim was the director of Joybells, the oldest Gospel choir in Europe, and is currently working on his own personal project with Praise Unit, which is just too good to miss. Check out some of their videos to give you an idea of Joakim´s high quality production.

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN IN?
You can give us a hand with this exciting project and become part of the Gospel story in Spain. You too can help others appreciate the power of our music and the hope it brings. You will discover a new sound and a new way of doing Gospel that will go straight to your heart.
LET'S GET THIS CLEAR - WHAT ARE WE GOING TO USE MONEY FOR?
As you can imagine, being an amateur choir, our resources are limited. So far we have only managed to cover our recording expenses; however, we still have so much more to do! The post-production, mixing and mastering still needs to be completed, as well as the cover design, copying and distributing of the CDs.
If all goes well, we would also like to organise a concert to share our new CD with you live.
It’s now in your hands!

We still cannot give a specific date of when the CD will be ready. Although the recording process is finished, we are still depending on a range of other factors.
Our intention is to be ready by the end of this year or at the beginning of 2014. We will keep you informed of every step through our blog.
