The Harlem Voices featuring Eric B. Turner

A Gospel Night!

After more than 20 years on the stages all over the world (Europe, Japan, USA, South America) with the famous gospel band The Harlem Messengers, On November 8, 2014 a vision became reality for the core musicians of this famous group. Dr Eric Turner- Pastor of The Worship Center Church of Harlem, NY and Professor at New York University- made a mark in the Harlem community, pioneering the first of many benefit concerts aiding local churches in need of financial assistance and deciding that his music should have a deep link to its inner message and its community, becoming a mean of support, education and aid, together with a musical and entertaining experience. In 2015 this vision would become official under the new registered name “The Harlem Voices, featuring Dr Eric Turner (T.H.V)”.
