Sunday Morning with SF Gay Men's Chorus

Lollipop Guild
Lollipop Guild

The Lollipop Guild is a division of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus first started in 1979 as a barbershop quartet that has grown from there to be the first small ensemble to be in the international Gay and Lesbian Association (GALA) of Choruses. Their repertoire now includes various styles of music, both accompanied and a cappella. You can see their musical influences are varied in the clip below, where they perform three songs. The first is a beautiful rendition of Season's Of Love from the Broadway musical Rent. The second song is a lovely version of Toto's big hit Africa, done without the benefit of a backing band. The third and final song is a different and enchanting version of Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris' I Will Survive, first performed by Miss Gloria Gaynor, and to many, the song sung at Gay Pride Parade's everywhere. Each and every song is delightful, delicious, and worth savoring. Plus, I think I have a crush on a couple of the guys...
