The Kingdom Choir, who performed 'Stand By Me' at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May, have penned their first ever record deal.
The Kingdom Choir won plaudits for their rendition of ‘Stand By Me’ at the event back on May 19th, in front of a television audience estimated to be around 1.9 billion – a far cry from their previous most-attended performance of 200 people.
