Gay Men's Choir of Los Angeles Performs "O Holy Night"
Gay Men's Choir of Los Angeles Performs O Holy Night

Baritone Louis Ramirez leads the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) in this sparkling rendition of the holiday classic, recorded in December 2012. Founded in 1979, GMCLA is the third oldest gay men's chorus group in the country. It was the first gay men's chorus to tour central Europe (1991), first to perform before a sitting U.S. president (Clinton, 1999, and Obama in West Hollywood, 2011), first to broadcast nationally on Russian television (1999), and first to tour South America (2006).
