The magic began in 1983 in Macon, Georgia, when the Georgia Mass Choir was organized by the Rev. Milton Biggham, who signed up the finest singers in the region, ranging in age from 13 through 70. Biggham is the founder, lead singer and major songwriter for the choir.
The highly acclaimed gospel choir reached a musical milestone with the November 1996 release of a twelve track spectacular album, "The Georgia Mass Choir: Greatest Hits." The world also heard the Georgia Mass Choir in the globally televised 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, during which the choir performed six times - including in the Opening Ceremonies and the healing re-opening ceremonies of Olympic Centennial Park, after the infamous bombing.
The group has continued to be honored with Stellar, Grammy and Dove Award nominations. This faith-filled vocal powerhouse also is featured in Disney's major motion picture, "The Preacher's Wife." Three of the choir's signature songs from "Greatest Hits", "He's All Over Me," "Joy and Hold On," "Help Is On The Way" - are on the movie's soundtrack CD, "Preacher's Wife". Star and recording superstar Whitney Houston leads choir selections.
Director Penny Marshall cast the choir. The group joined her and Houston on a national media tour promoting the movie. Appearances included TV's Saturday Night Live on NBC, NBC's Today Show and ABC's Good Morning America as well as
performances at The Ebony Awards and at Disney World.
