Milestone 30th album released April 6th
The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is recognized around the world. They’ve won multiple Grammy awards, performed at Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, and even a Presidential Inauguration! But most importantly they can be found every Sunday in New York City at their home church, The Brooklyn Tabernacle.
Over the years The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir has recorded 29 albums with over 200 songs. Founded in the mid-70s by Carol Cymbala, wife of senior Pastor Jim Cymbala, with only nine members, the choir has grown to nearly 300 members. Carol has written many of their songs some of which have become anthems of the church.
David & Nicole’s history with Brooklyn Tab
David and Nicole count Brooklyn Tab as friends, having ministered there many times throughout the years. David first met Jim & Carol Cymbala in the mid-1980s and was forever impacted by his experience at The Brooklyn Tabernacle.
The Choir recorded a couple of David’s songs in 1988, “O For A Thousand Tongues” and “Alleluia to the Lamb” on their album The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir Live! A Celebration of Worship and Praise.
Fast forward to 2002 after the horrific events of 9/11…David and Nicole received a phone call from Pastor Jim and Carol Cymbala asking Nicole to sing on their new album, Be Glad. The Cymbalas felt that after New York City had suffered such tragedy, the people needed a reason to sing and rejoice! Nicole was featured on the title track of the album Be Glad, which went on to win a Grammy award in 2003.
Then, in 2010 Nicole had the honor once again of being a guest vocalist on A Brooklyn Tabernacle Christmas, singing “It’s Christmas Once Again” and “Amazing Love.” In December 2010 The Brooklyn Tab Singers and Nicole sang “It’s Christmas Once Again” on Good Morning America.
I Am Reminded
On April 6th, 2018 The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is releasing their 30th album, I Am Reminded, and Nicole is again featured on the title track.
In a day when choirs seem to be disappearing from our churches, Nicole finds great joy in lifting her voice along with the hundreds of Brooklyn Tab choir members, celebrating God’s faithfulness. There’s nothing quite like a united army of voices lifted in praise!
