rehearsal joy


The Agape International Choir is a dynamic collection of over 200 individuals who are of service to the high vibration of Unconditional Love. When these voices join together, something positively breathtaking occurs, bringing transformation and true joy to the planet. Under the beautiful direction of Dr. Rickie Byars-Beckwith, The Agape International Choir raises the roof and helps to raise consciousness wherever they go.


The choir sings on the last Sunday and the second Wednesday of every month at their spiritual home, the Agape International Center.

The Agape Choir has been honored to perform in venues such as the 2008 Democratic National Convention and Inauguration in Washington DC., at Lincoln Center, the United Nations, The Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theatre, John Anson Ford Theatre and The Getty Museum. Additionally, the choir takes the love to the streets, bringing light and tremendous joy to downtown Culver City and LA’s Skid Row, with an inclusive program steeped in healing music and messages of self-acceptance and empowerment.
