This past week the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir was blessed to perform for three Super Bowl events including Super Bowl City, NFL Experience, and the GameDay Fan Plaza at Levi’s Stadium. I never would have imagined having the opportunity to sing at such a high-profile event. Yet there was OIGC, all dressed up in official NFL gospel choir robes, singing our hearts out for the attendees.

When I was brought on as the Production Manager for the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir in September of 2013, the groundwork for the European tour had recently begun. Almost 2 years later, after many hours of logistics, planning, and manifestation, I am pleased to say that the tour was a smashing success!
The members of the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir described the opportunity to perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival as a “bucket-list experience” and a “dream come true” and after hearing their voices lifted by the spirit at the Park Stage and at St. John’s Church, I’d say they can check that dream off their list.
was 24 years old, just a year home from college, working an internship at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center while I was looking for a full time job... and my purpose in life.
At approximately 7pm that Saturday night, I was sitting in the rear orchestra section of the Paramount Theatre by myself, surrounded by grown-ups I didn't know. My boss and mentor, Anne Huang, had given me a ticket to the gospel choir concert that she was in.
