CitySound was founded in 2002 when a handful of singers and musicians discovered a shared vision for using their musical gifts to encourage people in the name of God. The first CitySound concert was held at Los Angeles Mission, where 10 singers and musicians performed in front of 200 members in the audience. Since then, CitySound has grown to 20 regular members and has had the privilege of sharing the good news of the love of God to communities and organizations throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Some of the places we have performed include Los Angeles Mission, Hope Gardens, Union Rescue Mission, Love LA, RESCATE, and Habitat for Humanity, PATH, and scores of churches and other groups.

CitySound’s mission is to bring the Word of God to the people of Los Angeles through the power of music.


CitySound believes in the power of music to cut through cultural and intellectual barriers and speak directly to the soul. Music informs, inspires, and brings joy to people’s lives. CitySound has a distinctive contemporary choir style that has brought God’s great message of hope and encouragement to the people who need it the most.

“Thanks for a wonderful concert last Thursday evening. Our residents and staff at PATH had an uplifting experience. We appreciate your energy, your time, your love of music, and your love for others.”

“One of our residents was very depressed that day, and your singing gave her hope to go on. You truly made a difference. Please let your musicians and singers know that it was a transforming event for many of our residents.”

Testimonies like this are the reason CitySound exists.


CitySound is committed to expanding its outreach and is constantly improving the quality of its performances. We target our performances specifically at audiences that wouldn’t otherwise have access to musical performances of this nature. You can help us continue to do that by making a financial contribution, or you can also join our volunteer staff and serve in a number of different capacities. CitySound was started in the community and it is the community’s continued support that will sustain it in the years to come.

Please join us today as a partner and help CitySound make an even greater impact on the lives of people in Los Angeles!
