The Harlem Gospel Choir ended their tour of South America with a concert in Uruguay Thursday night (June 3), where they had the audience up on their feet, clapping and singing.

The choir performed traditional gospel music as well as putting their own style to a medley of songs by the Beatles.

On Friday (June 4), four of the singers visited the Martin Luther King School in Montevideo, where they performed a few songs and spoke about their music careers to children.

The concert and school program were sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, Montevideo.
