You aren't the first person to visit New York who wants to hear Gospel music. Hundreds of tourists flock to the big churches of Harlem every weekend. Not to mention the actual churchgoers -- you could wait hours to get in to a service.
Thank god I've got some tips for you to make your experience heavenly!
• Find out service schedules ahead of time. Churches have services at different times, and not all services include a choir. Look at a church’s website or call ahead to decide when to visit.
