In this episode of Sparking Change, Dil interviews Uche, Mika and Daniel of the Discovery Gospel Choir. We then hear their amazing performance of ‘The Elephant in the Room’ at the Peacock Stage Theatre.

Formed in 2004, Discovery Gospel Choir is home to a community of creatives from across the world. With over 30 members, this Dublin-based choir has become renowned for its unique fusion of gospel, folk and world music. Using music as a way to create and connect, audiences delight in hearing its inspirational message: ‘discover beauty in everyone’. From humble beginnings, today the gospel group continues its journey as Ireland’s leading intercultural choir.

Dil speaks to Uche, Mika and Daniel about the representation of different cultures on stage, and they discuss the creative process behind ‘Elephant in the Room’ as well as the message behind it. They also discuss Discovery Gospel Choir’s message of integration and the sense of community—and family—that Discovery Gospel Choir provides for people of all cultures and nationalities through the simple joy of song.
