Gospel Music Industry Alliance (GMIA) – the body representing British Gospel – has appointed six new Directors to shape and implement a national vision for the sector as it launches into the new 2020 era.
Chosen for their influence, experience and expressed passion the elected individuals are:
Karen Gibson – founder and conductor of Kingdom Choir

Roger Moore – record label and film production owner/founder GL360
Anu Omideyi– leading Choir Director and Worship Leader

The new Directors were chosen by special committees set up in each of the GMIA’s six regional areas representing practitioners from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, South West & Wales, North, Midlands and South East and London. The mood amongst the diverse creative community is one of great excitement and expectation. They join existing Directors Janet Simpson (music director and member of legendary group The Simpson Sisters), Kevin Tomlin (Black Music historian and author), and GMIA founder Juliet Fletcher (British Gospel Pioneer).
