The award-winning University Gospel Choir of the Year (UGCY) finals is back for its 8th
annual show this spring! A “Sister Act 2-esque” event for the whole family and music
lovers will have you up on your feet and singing your way out of the venue! UGCY
promises to be jam packed, melody filled and guaranteed to leave you uplifted and
inspired! The Dominion Centre in London, Wood Green, on 24th March 2018 will play
host to this year’s proceedings.
After achieving success with features in The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, the BBC
Gospel Proms and the launch of our UGCY Ghana Edition, UGCY is aiming to stage the
most spectacular show yet.
As always the competition will be full of dancing, laughter and roaring cheers (and a few tears!) with our seasoned Gospel Music gurus judging the competition ultimately deciding which choir will be crowned the 2018 UNIVERSITY GOSPEL CHOIR OF THE YEAR!!
UGCY is proud to be able to provide such a unique platform for University Students to display their talents! We invite you to experience the CREATIVITY of theses students with their UPLIFTING songs and performances as many have done since 2011!
