There were so many amazingly beautiful and touching moments during the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, but one of our favorites included an amazing choir that totally brought down the house.

The Kingdom Choir, from South East England, sang Ben E. King’s classic song “Stand by Me” and  “This Little Light Of Mine.”

Take a look for yourself:

Killed it!

Clearly, the majority Black choir was excited to take part in this history-making moment.

“We are extremely excited to be taking part in such a historic moment and know that it is one that we will always treasure,” the choir said in a statement.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to wish the couple all the very best for their coming union and thank them once again for their kind invitation.”

Led by founder and director Karen Gibson, the award-winning multi-denominational choir has been in existence for nearly 20 years, performing all over the world.

“I started The Kingdom Choir in response to a request from the BBC, who needed a choir for a special program they were broadcasting,” she said on the choir’s Facebook page.

“I now know that this was not a random incident or by accident, but the beginning of something that has blossomed in purpose and passion.”

The royal wedding wasn’t the first time they have performed for Queen. They performed at the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, celebrating her 50 years on the throne, in 2002, ABC News reported.

    While I do not agree with Prince Harry marrying an Ametucan or an actress, as a Christian I liked the wedding because it kept Jesus Christ at the forefront.

    As a black person I personally have nothing against Meg I hope she is strong enough to handle all the hate she will get. People can be like vultures picking at you til there’s nothing left. I personally give her cudos for trying to be happy as well as bridge to gap between both her sides that she had no control over. As hard as it is to believe in this climate and this world everyone is not rasicts. I think Harry is happy with his bride.

    Magnificent! I’m have listened to it several times since the wedding and each time I’m more enthralled. and they looked so regal. I was so proud. This was one of the most moving weddings I’ve seen in a long time. The young cellist at the end was phenomenal. We have to give Meghan and Harry, and the royal family credit for being so inclusive. The US administration needs to learn from Bishop Curry’s powerful sermon – so timely with all of the violence and hate going on.
