Toronto, ON, August 28, 2013 – The Juno award winning Toronto Mass Choir (TMC) plans to record their first live worship album "Made for Worship" this fall. The choir will record mostly original material and the album will feature some of the top musicians in Canada. By recording the live concert, TMC hopes that the resulting CD and video will accurately capture a live and spontaneous gospel music experience.
TMC is a Canadian gospel choir that incorporates contemporary gospel, traditional gospel and Caribbean music influences resulting in their own musical style.  The choir has received worldwide recognition and has toured in Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and Europe.  This concert will cap a year of celebration for the Toronto Mass Choir’s 25th anniversary.
With nine CD releases to date, TMC is adding a live worship CD recording to their already diverse collection.  For the first time, TMC is running a crowd-funding campaign through Indiegogo to support this new recording. The campaign’s video features choir director Karen Burke describing the vision for the project and ways to partner with TMC on their journey.
The fundraising campaign has several different donation levels with corresponding rewards, termed ‘perks’.  These perks include a 90 minute performance by the choir at your church, home, school or office, a digital download of the new CD, a weekend getaway, tickets to the live concert and a copy of the new CD.
The Indiegogo campaign page itemizes what expenses are required to make the live CD so supporters know exactly how the funds are being spent.
