From June 3 – 8 Tim McAfee Lewis and the Agape Love Ensemble will conduct a daily Choir and Music Department-Building Workshop open to anyone who would like to sing and be part of the new UPC Choir, or who has other musical gifts to oﬀer. These workshops are designed to make singing, and learning how to sing such fun and so easy that anyone can do it with ease and grace. The workshops are designed to appeal to complete beginners and experienced vocalists alike.
In addition to his duties as Assistant Director of the world-renowned Agape International Choir and the Agape Music and Arts Ministry, Tim McAfee Lewis is a singer/songwriter who innovatively fuses the foot-stomping, heart- shouting energy and rhythms of traditional gospel music with soul-liberating lyrics that contain empowering spiritual messages from the New Thought Movement to create a highly original
music that speaks to listeners from all spiritual and religious traditions. McAfee Lewis calls his music "New Thought Gospel."
Mr. McAfee Lewis is a talented arranger who has contributed original and electrifying arrangements for traditional gospel songs such as "Walk in the Light," "Stepped in the Water," and "Blessing Me" to the Agape International Choir. He also provided the choir a new arrangement for the Broadway musical hit, "The Color Purple."
