On October 7th, the Jubilee Chorus had its first performance at the NYC Rescue Mission. The NYC Rescue Mission has provided hope, food, clothing and shelter to people in crisis in New York City since 1872.
The Jubilee Chorus provided a worship service by singing songs, reading the Word, and sharing two testimonies. The overarching theme was based on Psalm 23.

The Jubilee Chorus started the event by singing the song "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day" by John Gardner. The song's rhythmic energy and joyous melody was a great opener for the event. Next, Jubilee Chorus member, Ted White, read Matthew 13:9 and another member, Gail Fuentes, gave a testimony confessing that God saved her life in a dangerous traffic accident. The Jubilee Chorus sang a couple of other songs including "The Lord is My Shepherd" by Paul Liljestrand.

Another chorus member, Angelica Garcia read Psalm 23 and sang "O Rest in the Lord" from Mendelssohn's Elijah. Chorus member, David Sterling, delivered an encouraging message to the audience, mentioning about how God intervened in the life of David from the bible. For the last song, everyone sang "Total Praise" by Richard Smallwood with one united voice. The audience showed warm gratitude by providing a standing ovation.

Dr. Swanson introduced Jubilee Chorus as a Christian fellowship where people from many different backgrounds (Japan, South Korea, Canada, Philippines) and ages gather together to praise the Lord, going beyond their origins and cultural differences. The ensemble's diversity is its strength. David Knoche from the Rescue Mission once again thanked the Jubilee Chorus and brought about another round of applause from the audience by exclaiming "Have you ever heard such beautiful praises before? We thank Jubilee Chorus for coming here and making this performance possible." When the performance ended, the audience shared their thanks and and anticipated the upcoming performance in December, when the Jubilee Chorus will return to The New York City Rescue Mission for a Christmas program.
