Meet the man behind the L.A. Mass Choir, Mr. Donald Taylor. His passion for gospel music and choir directing developed at a very young age.

“The first community choir was Harrison Johnson and the Los Angeles Community Choir back in the 1960’s,” said Taylor. “Which is my godfather, so I was under his wings for a long time. Growing up under him, I was inspired to start my own choir. At the age of 17, I started directing my youth choir at church. From then on, it became a passion for me.”

Taylor went on to form the gospel group, “Friends,” which later became “Donald Taylor and the L.A. Mass Choir,” and “L.A. Mass: Next Generation.” Taylor is also the choir director for “One Voice” and “Men of Praise,” two groups at the Faithful Central Church where he has been a member for over 20 years.
