UVOCAre you ready for a celebration? Get ready to stomp, clap and shout with SC State University’s United Voices of Christ (UVOC) gospel choir as they celebrate their 18th anniversary. The event will take place on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2009 at 4 p.m. in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium located on the campus of SC State. This year’s theme is "In the Presence of Royalty."

The three-time award winning gospel choir was founded on Nov. 4, 1991 by Vanessa Williams, Derek Evans and Kenneth Windham. UVOC was created by the members of the choir who had a yearning desire to unite SC State students as "One Body in Christ.”

The choir consists of more than 60 students who are active members dedicated to ministering and praising God through songs of Zion. The UVOC gospel choir travels throughout South Carolina and abroad spreading the divine word of God and winning souls for Christ, while ministering through song and dance.

The following choirs will participate during UVOC’s 18th anniversary, including: Savannah State University, Savannah, Ga. and Irmo High School, Columbia, S.C.

SC State’s faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the evening of praise and worship. The community is also invited. Admission is free.
