Earl Bynum, producer, author and teacher, will be accompanied by ten singers and musicians from The Mount Unity Choir at the Christmas concert in Auditorium Portorož. The choir is a key part of Mount Lebanon Baptist Church, one of the main Baptist churches in Virginia, USA, which is involved in many cultural, social and humanitarian projects.
Bynum is well known in Virginia as one of the main personalities of the gospel scene and organizer of numerous meetings, courses and workshops. Following the success of past tours, where he has performed in numerous theatres, churches and auditoriums in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, this time Bynum presents a cast of seven vocalists accompanied by piano, keyboards and rhythm section. All members of the ensemble come from the 100+ member choir of Mount Lebanon Baptist Church, considered the focal point of the Baptist community in Virginia, and whose Norfolk-based music department, known as 'The Mount', demonstrates outstanding artistic potential.
The choir is full of energy and passion, as evidenced especially in their live concerts. Their music is a blend of traditional and contemporary gospel and touches of jazz, always infused with exceptional energy and masterful performance. They have been guests on the Bobby Jones Gospel Show on BET Television on several occasions. Mount Unity Choir won the prestigious award for Best Church Choir at the "Neighborhood Awards" in 2013, and in 2014 they won the "Stellar Awards" for Best Contemporary Gospel Choir.
