    Hailing from Toronto Canada, the Powerhouse Fellowship Soul Choir is a group of talented teens and young adults with a passion and goal to change lives though music. Fondly referred to as POWERHOUSE, the choir was formed in 1986 for a church building fund program. In 1988 the choir was officially founded and directed under the leadership of Shawn Cotterell. With thirty-five voices and a multi-talented band, the choir’s repertoire ranges from hip-hop, reggae, traditional and contemporary gospel. 


    The director and founder of this anointed choir is Shawn Cotterell. Shawn Cotterell’s first musical experience began at the age of seven singing in a church choir. By the age of twelve, Shawn answered the call of God on his life and began organizing the Powerhouse Fellowship Soul Choir. Having a love for music, Cotterell's professional musical experience included recording background vocals for Sesame Street fame-Bob Mcgrath, Canadian Folk singer Rita MacNeil, and Sharon, Lois and Bram. Cotterell also served as an alternate Praise and Worship leader at Revival Time Tabernacle pastored by Reverend Audley James. He is currently part of the Praise and Worship team at the Kingsway Community Life Centre pastored by Richard J. Brown. Shawn’s dream is to make a lasting impact and impression on mainstream music. "I love music and I thank God for giving me this gift. My only prayer is when I use this gift, those who listen would be blessed."

Fueled with energetic and spirit filled performances, Powerhouse had the opportunity to grace the stage at many venues, not only across Toronto, but as far as Ottawa, Canada, Montreal PQ, Brooklyn New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Las Vegas.
