The RAISE singers are L.A.'s own Soul-Gospel-R&B Choir, representing the vibrancy and cultural diversity of this great city. The artists of RAISE have become a family of singers, working closely together now for almost 10 years. The singers are all emerging R&B artists, singers and songwriters, session vocalists with backgrounds in church and tours and musicals - and come together on each project bringing something individually to make up a unique, edgy and exciting Gospel-R&B-Soul choir experience.
RAISE began in 2014 as a collection of soul music artists getting together to sing Gospel and R&B tunes on private bookings. In 2014, RAISE opened for the ADL Awards honoring Mark Burnett and Roma Downey and in 2016, performed at Disney's California Adventure Park for their “Festival of Holidays” as the first All-Black Live Singing group. In 2020, RAISE performed with Daybreaker on the Oprah Tour and is currently the choir and soloists in "Defining Courage" with ABC7's David Ono (Segerstrom, Kennedy Center, Hawaii Theater). RAISE is grateful to share their music and spirit and spread Joy to all and is honored to be a part of the L.A. County Holiday Celebration legacy!
