Tula Lynch

Tula Lynch is a singer, songwriter and choir director originally  from North London. Tula first discovered her passion for singing in the  children's choir at her home church, The People’s Christian Fellowship  at the tender age of 3. For a number of years since, she has worked on  her craft, training under a variety of vocal tutors and directors and  lending her versatile vocal style to lead singing and backing vocals in  live concerts and recordings. This has opened the door for her to be  part of a wide variety of gospel choirs and groups including worship  band, I=Change, gospel soul group V9 Collective and The PCF Choir where  she had the opportunity to build on and express her love for music  further. She has also been blessed with the opportunity to sing and  teach Gospel singing in and around London and various parts of Europe,  including Denmark, Poland and Czech Republic spreading God’s love and  hope and her personal heart for worship.

Wayne Elington

 Wayne’s singing career began at a very early age in church, where he sang in a group alongside his siblings. It was obvious that young Wayne had a natural flair for singing, and he was encouraged to perform at every opportunity. It wasn’t long before Wayne was joining choirs, singing solo, and developing skills that would serve him well in later years.

Wayne further honed his talent when he attended Brunel University studying a BMus in Music and Art, gaining the prestigious and coveted Sheridan Instrumental Prize for Outstanding Singing and Musicianship in the process.

Wayne’s career in the arts is extensive and has seen him performing in musicals, providing backing vocals for recording artists, singing internationally with choirs, delivering singing workshops, running vocal coaching classes and working in schools. He has stood on the stage with well established artists such as Blur and even Pope St John Paul II. He has worked all over the world and has become an international vocal coach that is in high demand.

Wayne is the founder of Manchester Inspirational Voices, a vibrant community choir based in the heart of Manchester, and has been directing them for the past 12 years. This year, the choir succeeded in reaching the finals of the Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year. The choir is one of his proudest achievements to date, as it seeks to give others access to things that gives him the most inspiration – the gift of singing.
