The Mount Zion Fellowship Choir is a vibrant and charismatic group of young people from the Greater Toronto Area focused on conveying songs that speak to God as both salvation and consolation. This group's passion in delivering this message by blending hard-hitting traditional gospel with a contemporary flare, has platform them to reach both an adult and youth audiences alike. Such conviction and excitement as presented by this group, has heightened their soulful renditions of mainstream gospel to that of traditional hymns.
This 30 voice choir and 4 member band, strives to add an eclectic and unique spin to gospel music as so to reach beyond the confines of this particular musical genre. This versatility has aided in the longevity and success of this group. Coupled with that, Mount Zion Fellowship Choir's keen understanding of their central purpose to touch people by ministering and imparting the gospel of Jesus Christ through song has become a distinctive feature that is associated with this group. Their act of acknowledgment and obedience to this purpose over the years have aided in many people being uplifted, encouraged and strengthen. The choir's commitment and their understanding to their purpose for being in the choir and as a Christian are the two elements are congruent thus enabling them to perform effectively.
This choir was formed for the purpose of providing encouragement, strength and development of what the Lord has called young people to be - a carrier of the glory of God! Throughout the years, the Lord has given the choir songs that speak to this present day and provides hope for the future. This creative outpouring has resulted in the first CD project, recorded live in Toronto in 2012 and released October 2013. Appropriately titled "...In His Presence" describes not only how these songs came to fruition, but also where it is we desire to be.
For over ten years the choir has been under the leadership of Jerome Cawley, who has been directing choirs for more than 13 years in various capacities within the church circles, not-for-profit agencies, community organizations and beyond. He currently, teaches gospel music in the Toronto District School Board.
The Mount Zion Fellowship Choir has performed in various settings and events, including the Jesus in the City Parade, Mel Lastman's Square, Kitchener Women's Prison, Mississauga Community Park, corporate gala's and at numerous churches within the province of Ontario. As such, the aspiration of the Mount Zion Fellowship Choir is to present their inspirational and convicting songs to a broader listening audience.
"...In His Presence" will be available this fall in various stores in the Greater Toronto Area and online.
