"It solidifies us as a group that exemplifies excellence," said Andiel Brown, UO instructor of gospel choirs and ensembles. "This isn't just an every day class. This is getting national recognition."

The Gospel Singers are the most advanced of the three gospel choirs that make up the University Gospel Ensembles.

"We plan on continuing this tradition of success," Brown said.

Below, in a video from earlier this year, Brown discusses the group's success. The video also features footage from a performance at January's Celebrating Champions parade.
