The New Generation Singers are “on the road again,” as they travel the east coast presenting their unique performances of Christian music in several styles. Contemporary, traditional, accompanied, a cappella, serious and fun pieces are included in their program. The Singers are quick to use any type of music to bring their message to their audiences.
The New Generation Singers is a group of high school and college age young people who have taken their message to audiences in every continental United States and most of the Canadian Provinces during their 40 plus years of touring.
Founded as a “youth choir” in 1970, they have become a “youth group” that sings and uses their music as a vehicle to spread God’s message. They have grown into an internationally recognized group representing many denominations and beliefs. They are a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-talented group of faith and energy driven singers and players.
While the singers have performed primarily in churches, they have also performed in non-church venues such as schools, parks, arenas, fairs, inside the base of the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Park, on the steps of the nation’s Capitol in Washington D.C. (earning a mention in the Congressional Record), the Upper Room of the United Methodist Headquarters and in the Chapel of West Point for Parents Day (an audience of 5,000+) in Sunday morning worship. While performing at Lake Chautauqua, New York, at the annual Chautauqua International Institute, they met Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. Dr. Peale invited them to appear at his publishing company (Guide Posts). The relationship extended over several years and a bond was created between the singers and Dr. Peale which allowed for many performances at Guide Posts and local churches in that area. A performance highlight was appearing in concert with the Harlem Gospel Choir of New York City.
While in the community, as part of their “Along The Way” tour, the singers will be performing at the Seven Points Amphitheater at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, and at the Oasis of Love Church, 10991 Station Road, Huntingdon, (across from Southside Elementary School) at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 18. In case of rain, venues may switch days. For more information, call the Oasis of Love Church at 627-3819. The New Generation Singers previously performed at the Oasis of Love Church in 2011, 2014 and 2016.
