Time Out says

The gospel choir from Harry and Meghan's wedding is making its Sydney debut at the Opera House

There are always memorable moments at a royal wedding, but few quite as moving as the Kingdom Choir's performance of Ben E King's 'Stand by Me' at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. Led by conductor Karen Gibson, the London-based gospel choir brought a tight harmonies and a soulful touch to a rather stately affair.

The choir, which was formed in the mid-90s, is coming to the Sydney Opera House as part of its debut Australian tour. The choir brings together various Christian music traditions and its members come from different churches across London and its surrounds. Expect gorgeous harmonies on songs from the choir's new album, which features 'I Say a Little Prayer', 'Amazing Grace', John Legend's 'All of Me', Beyoncé's 'Halo', John Farnham's 'You're the Voice' and, of course, 'Stand by Me'.
