Atlanta, Georgia

The New Life Inspirational Gospel Choir (New Life) was founded in August of 1984 by the Reverend Jonathan Alvarado, a graduate of Morehouse College and presently the pastor of Total Grace Ministries in Atlanta, Georgia. He was succeeded by the Rev. Sirdelrol Vonzel Drayton, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, who also attended Morehouse College.

Under the leadership of Rev. Drayton, New Life grew from a mere eight members to nearly 100 dedicated voices. From his directorship sprang forth many dedicated assistant directors, including Ms. Stephanie Pugh, Rev. James Fields, Ms. JoAnn Carrington, Mr. William Durham, Mr. Andre Harrison, and Min. George Luster IV. In March, 1993, Rev. Drayton was succeeded by Rev. Jeronn C. Williams, then a student and now a graduate of Morehouse College and the Pastor of the New Life International Family Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

From its founding to the present, the spirit of ministry has been deeply embedded into the hearts of the members of the New Life Inspirational Gospel Choir. They presently have members representing the entire Atlanta University Center, which includes Morehouse College, Spelman College,Clark Atlanta University, Morris Brown College, and the Interdenominational Theological Seminary, also members from Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Emory University, Kennesaw State University, Atlanta Metropolitan College, Georgia Perimeter College, Luther Rice Seminary, and Devry University.
