Universal Gospel Choir’s award nominated studio album, Rise Above, is now available!

Rise Above took three years to make and was recorded at multiple studios around the Lower Mainland, including The Warehouse Studios and Armoury Studios. It features eleven well-known gospel songs including “Take My Hand, Precious Lord”, “One Day” and “Wings of a Dove”.

Universal Gospel Choir’s Artistic Director, Lonnie Delisle, who arranged most of the songs on the album acknowledges that Rise Above is an album in response to what is going on in the world. “There is much rhetoric in the world that divides us,” he says, “we want to share the message of hope that we can indeed rise above our human squabbles to a place of radical acceptance and generous love for one another.”
