The University of Mississippi


UMGC's purpose is to allow members to utilize their musical talents and abilities through song and praises for the magnification of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.



Brief History of the Organization: It began as the Black Student Union Choir in 1974. Today, it has emerged as the University of Mississippi Gospel Choir and, more importantly, the first college gospel choir to sign with a major gospel record label. This student run organization has faithfully sung the Lord's praises for the last 37 years. Generations of African American students have found fellowship, support, and inspiration as they have strived for musical and academic excellence at the University of Mississippi.
