The Top Gospel Performers in the World Today!
For the past 15 years, Entertainment Cruise Productions (ECP) has produced music cruises of all genres. But whether the cruise features “straight ahead” jazz, “smooth” jazz, country music, rock ’n’ roll, Elvis, R&B or Celtic songs, each of our over 50 cruises has included a gospel show on the first or second morning of the voyage. The celebration of gospel music is one of the most popular aspects of an ECP cruise and one we hold nearest to our hearts. So, it should not be a surprise that we are producing the first-ever sailing of The Gospel Music Cruise.
And, like any other ECP program, this is not just any gospel music cruise. The cruise will feature the very best gospel performers in the world. Once completed, we will proudly announce the full lineup, but we can already share with you that we are honored to have signed both Kirk Franklin and Fred Hammond for the cruise. We are also thrilled that longtime ECP friend and 2014 Grammy Award winner for Best Gospel Song, Kirk Whalum, will be serving as the creative producer of the cruise and performing.
As Kirk Whalum says, “I have been a part of at least a dozen sailings produced by Entertainment Cruise Productions and have either led or contributed to a gospel music show on each cruise. I am both honored and humbled to be in charge of the first-ever full-ship charter dedicated to gospel music. It is a task and a responsibility that I will embrace with my heart.”
I am particularly excited about this new program. In our experiences at sea, gospel music has brought our guests together in a way that transcends religion. The spiritual nature of the music touches guests of all religions, faiths and beliefs. We thought it was time to dedicate a cruise to this most American form of music, and we are thrilled that Kirk Whalum, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond and so many other top stars will be joining us for this amazing event.
In addition to the once-in-a-lifetime array of gospel music, the cruise will feature other spiritual and uplifting events as well as providing opportunities to enjoy the activities and events that customarily are included in an Entertainment Cruise Productions cruise. The cruise will celebrate the music, herald the spirit and enliven the soul ... and we will have a great, great time doing it.
The official launch of the cruise will take place in two weeks, but as a Soul at Sea viewer, we wanted to let you know sooner. By acting now, you can lock in your priority for a cabin and secure your right to qualify for The Spirit Rate (the lowest rate that will be offered for this cruise).
To do so, or to be placed on the list for more information, simply click on the icon below and fill out the form. This will be your first step towards an amazing week of the best gospel music in the world.
Passionate about music and passionate about cruising. Put 'em together and I'm in heaven -- you can catch up with me on a themed cruise and, especially, on an Entertainment Cruise!
