Tyler Pittaway back with you this week on Gateway after a weekend in Germany. Let me tell you now; if you’ve not been to Hamburg before – get over there straight away and see it for yourself. It’s super Christmassy. Anyway – here’s what happened on the show this week.
The Basildon Community Gospel Choir
I had the pleasure of being joined in the studio (very impromptu) by the excellent Basildon Community Gospel Choir.
The vocal on these guys are absolutely amazing – and you can see more from them on Facebook.
