Joyful's Spirit of New Choir, had the opportunity to work with "Ben Saunders" from Holland.  He wanted to add a "Gospel Feel" to his song "Kill For A Broken Heart ".  Ben had a soulful sound already so it all worked out really well.  We had an awesome time being interviewed, working in the studio and performing with Ben at The House Of Blues French Quarters location here in New Orleans.   Ben and the Joyful's choir had a fantastic show.  The audience was awesome and grateful.  They were on their feet, clapping, waving their hands and singing just having a great time.  This is one show that they will never forget!

On Tuesday, May 25 2010, Joyful Gospel, USA, backed by the Joyful Gospel Choir, was called upon to perform the memorial service for the 11 families that lost loved ones in the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion off the coast of Louisiana on April 20, 2010.  The service was held in Jackson, Mississippi at the Downtown Civic Center.  It was a breath taking service, and a great opportunity for Joyful Gospel to bring a message of hope to the heartbroken families, friends and others who were present.  The event was sponsored by Transocean;  endorsed by President Obama as well as the Governors of Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. 
We are incredibly honored to be chosen for this event. Special thanks go out to
everyone who worked hard to make it an event of Rememberance and Honor.
