It’s entirely possible that adding a gospel choir is the obvious move for any musician wanting to increase a song’s theatrics, but choirs are used so seldom in pop music that I’m not sure whether they’re just a cheap trick or obvious for a reason. There’s only one way to find out: let’s do some more choir stuff. Please.
