The Boston Pops and the Boston Pops Gospel Choir will be led by conductor/pianist/composer Charles Floyd for the 24th annual Gospel Night at Pops. This rousing performance will feature legendary singer Darlene Love and the voices of the all-volunteer Boston Pops Gospel Choir. Called "one of the greatest singers of all time," by Rolling Stone, Darlene Love performed backup vocals for Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, and Elvis Presley before breaking out as a star in her own right. She was also featured in the Academy Award-winning film Twenty Feet from Stardom, which explored the fascinating lives of some of the music industry's most prominent backup singers. The performance will showcase some of the most recognized tunes in gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop as well as such gospel hits as "Lean on Me" "Marvelous" "Who Under Heaven" and "Please Be Patient With Me."
