‘Tis the season to be giving all the glory and praise! Howard University & Florida A&M University’s Gospel Choirs, in conjunction with Warner Brothers Pictures are celebrating 12 Days of #TheColorPurple countdown with melodic renditions from the movie’s soundtrack.

HGC shared their rendition of “I’m Here“, (inspired by Fantasia’s performance as Ms. Celie) to their Instagram page his past Friday.

“We are so excited to join with our friends at @wbpictures and our #HBCU family across the nation to showcase our #PurpleLove by reimagining our favorite songs from the movie.”

Established in 1968, the Howard Gospel Choir is comprised of students, alumni, and community members with a legacy of five decades of musical excellence.

Some of their most noted alumni include Richard Smallwood and Coré Cotton (from Sounds of Blackness), Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark of the Clark Sisters, and R&B star Ángela Winbush.
