John Fisher played drums for Chaka Khan, Mica Paris, Denise Williams and London Community Gospel Choir (LCGC) before starting IDMC Gospel Choir. IDMC celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019 with a 30-date international tour.
Steeped in Gospel music from an early age, John has worked with LCGC’s Basil Meade and Karen Gibson of Kingdom Choir, now famous for their part in the 2018 Royal Wedding.
IDMC includes up to 25 members from various Christian backgrounds plus a small group of professional musicians. They have amassed nine albums including one recorded at Le Pas Opton in 2012.
The choir were finalists in BBC Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year in 2018 when they also won Premier Radio’s Gospel Choir of the Year and an Urban Music Award for Best Gospel Act 2018.
John’s schools project We sing, U sing has helped thousands of young people to learn and experience Gospel music for themselves – including spectacular finale concerts with the IDMC choir and band. His teaching experience, musical genius and above all his love for Jesus Christ blend together as he leads and inspires at LPO in 2021.
