VSU Mass Choir was founded in the early 1980’s but ceased to function during the Fall of 1983 under the name of “The Children of the King.” The choir reorganized as the Rose Ensemble in 1995 and later that year the choir was officially named the Valdosta State College Gospel Choir after being established as an official VSU student organization with the dedication of Mr. Jim Black.
As of October 1995, Ms. Thamika Miller was established as the first president of the Valdosta State College Gospel Choir which was later changed to Valdosta State University Mass Choir. The choir’s new name came in Fall 1998 when the school adopted the semester system, along with other units of the University System of Georgia. The VSU Mass Choir encourages people of all faiths, creeds, and origins to participate .
Under the leadership of Minister AC Braswell for 13 years, the VSU Mass Choir grew and continued to spread the gospel by way of song. Today, the VSU Mass Choir, lead by a dynamic student leadership executive board, recruits new members, visits other colleges and universities and local ministries to fellowship. The VSU Mass Choir continues to grow and thrive.
