Ignition Gloucestershire in conjunction with the Stroud Sacred Music Festival, Storm 5 Management and CompassionUK presents one of the biggest names in UK Gospel music, acclaimed singer-songwriter Philippa Hanna in concert with Gloucestershire's own Beacon Gospel Choir.
Since her 2007 debut, Philippa has released several studio albums, an EP and a live DVD, and published two autobiographical books. As one of the most sought-after acoustic performers in the UK, she has opened tours for acts including Lionel Richie, Anastacia, Leona Lewis, Wet Wet Wet, Rebecca Ferguson, Collabro and, in 2016, Little Mix.
Recorded in Nashville, Philippa's new album 'Speed Of Light' tackles the challenges of life head-on, offering listeners a message of hope in the face of adversity.
The Beacon Gospel Choir came together as a means of helping people find their voices and to learn the joy of using them voice to praise God. 10 years later the choir have gone from strength to strength and recently performed at the Upton Blues Festival as well as one of the largest venues in Gloucestershire, Cheltenham's Centaur.
