As sudden tragedy struck, and our nation mourned the death of President J.F.K. on November 22, 1963, the gospel world celebrated the birth of this great singing aggregation as they appeared in their debut concert on November 23, 1963, as "The Gospel Singers Ensemble," under the leadership of founder and director Professor Irvin Brockington.
Amid national turmoil and confusion, the Lord had anointed this young group of singers to bring a message of hope to the world. Truly, at that spiritually memorable event, and yet, now 41 years later, the Brockington Ensemble continues to further the legacy that God birthed in them that fall evening.
Being noted as one of the first gospel choirs to record a "live" album, the Lord has blessed the Brockington Ensemble to spread the gospel message through a history of 14 recordings, countless concerts, television appearances and live stage productions.
In 1967, the Ensemble was honored with a personal invitation by the late Rev. James Cleveland to participate in the forming of his Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) Convention in Detroit, Michigan.
Apart from Professor Brockington's heartfelt lyrics and creative arrangements, the Ensemble maintains the traditional sound of gospel music through their powerful, hard-hitting choral delivery, as well as their harmonic and dynamic ingenuity.
