3 Choirs – An Evening of Gospel & Soul returns to Worthing in June for the third year running, this year with renowned choral director and vocal coach Mark De-Lisser as guest director. Famed for arranging Stand by Me for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as his work on shows such as BBC’s The Voice and All Together Now, Mark brings passion and energy to any performance.

When you arranged Stand by Me for the royal wedding and then performed it with the Kingdom Choir, did you and the other choir members realise the impact you would have?

We had no idea how massive the song would be. It only dawned on me around 24 hours after the performance when my phone was off the hook with Tweets etc!

Who or what inspired you to get involved in the music industry?

Growing up in church gives you a love and understanding of music and being creative. When I found out that I could make a living doing this, I took the opportunity to make that happen.

We feel honoured to have you back again as part of 3 Choirs project. What made you say yes to Worthing?

We had such an incredible time last year and my love for community choirs only continues to grow. I will always give my time to inspire, nurture and develop choirs in the community.
