The wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made history and inspired many of us around the world. One thing we could not get enough of was the incredible Kingdom Choir, who took us to church with their rendition of 'Stand By Me'. A black gospel choir at a British royal wedding was an unexpected yet amazing surprise, and they absolutely slayed.

Their version of the Ben E. King hit soared to the top of the US Gospel Charts not long after. Now, the British choir, who have supported musicians from Elton John, The Spice Girls, and Luther Vandross - before wowing 1.9bn Royal Wedding watchers - have inked a deal with Sony Music UK.
