The (NFL) Players Choir -- Celebrating 16 Years In The Game!

The NFL Players Choir: Celebrating 16 Years of Soulful Performance

Since its inception in 2008 at the 9th Annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration (SBGC) in Phoenix, Arizona, all-NFL group The Players Choir has become synonymous with soulful performances during the biggest weekend in sports, the annual Super Bowl Weekend. Developed by Super Bowl Gospel Celebration Founder and Executive Producer Melanie Few, the choir boasts a lineup of NFL superstars, including Super Bowl Champions, Pro Bowlers, NFL Men of the Year, and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees.

In 2024, the choir had the honor of gracing the stage at the CBS Broadcast of the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration 25th Anniversary Special during Super Bowl LVIII week in Las Vegas. Sharing the stage with music icon Kirk Franklin and the Southern University Human Jukebox drumline, their electrifying performance showcased their talent and passion for music.

Additionally, the choir showcased their musical prowess at the prestigious NFL Honors ceremony, broadcast on CBS. Their performances extend beyond the football field, with appearances at various NFL games and charitable events benefiting organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the American Cancer Society. From The White House to The House of Blues, their soul-stirring performances have left an indelible mark on audiences across the nation.

Looking ahead, the choir is gearing up for another unforgettable performance alongside fellow AGT alums, the Detroit Youth Choir, during the NFL Draft Concert Series, which will take place as part of the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit.

As they celebrate 16 years of soulful performance, The Players Choir continues to inspire with their harmonious melodies, philanthropic endeavors, and unwavering dedication to excellence both on and off the field.
