Mid Shore Voices United is a group of enthusiastic singers from several different religious denominations covering an enormous amount of territory throughout Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

The choir was founded in November 2023, when the Covenant Gospel Choir, Friends For Christ, and the  Second Generation Community Chorus of Federalsburg, Maryland, came together to participate in a benefit for a local cause. This group brings together singers from St. Michaels, Wittman, Neavitt, Royal Oak, Bellevue, Easton, Federalsburg, Hurlock, Preston, Denton, Salisbury and Cambridge, Maryland; Dover, Middletown, Milford, Millsboro, Seaford, Laurel and Wilmington, Delaware; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The combined choir is under the joint direction of Leroy Potter (Covenant Gospel Choir) who is currently a music teacher in the Caroline County Public Schools, and Ambia Hooper (Second Generation Community Choir) who is a retired music teacher from Talbot County Public Schools.

This group offers a unique mixture of Negro spirituals and spirited gospel music. The MSVU’s present musicians are Leroy Potter and Chris Barnett, keyboards; Robert Morris, drums; and Thomas Hatcher, bass guitar.

The choir takes great pride in spreading the word and making a joyful noise.
