ABOUT

"I hope to see people of all generations, all walks of life, and all musical genres come together and worship in unity. That's what we're about...bridging people together."

- Bradley Knight, Founder/Director

BK Bridge represents a divine global collaboration. With members hailing from countries such as Jamaica, Russia, Honduras, and Japan, these singers’ hearts were knit together while serving alongside one another as part of the Grammy Award-winning

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir in New York City. One by one, God called each individual away from New York into different avenues of ministry. But their bond and passion for Spirit-filled worship remained. Now, under the direction of Dove Award-winning composer Bradley Knight, BK Bridge has been formed for such a time as this, to lift up the name of Jesus. Their name is a nod to the NYC Borough where they first met (BK) and the one common goal this diverse group of worship leaders share:

  • Bridge the nations.

  • Bridge the generations.

  • Bridge the Church.
