Performing that night will be many of the original lead vocalists and musicians that made up the “Choir’s Choir” affectionately known to most as just “The Tommies”. The Tommies Reunion is comprised of former members of the Thompson Community Singers as well as some new young talent that treasures the experience of working with the faces and voices that sent the group to the top of the charts during the late 80’s and 90’s and ushered in the contemporary gospel sound which led to them being called the #1 choir in the country and placed them permanently in gospel music history. The Thompson Community Singers were organized under the leadership of the late Rev. Milton Brunson.
Rev. Brunson was a trailblazer and created opportunities and careers for some of the most prolific and inspiring songwriters, musicians, vocalists, and producers in Gospel Music. The Tommies Reunion honors his legacy and is determined to keep that legacy alive!
