The Genesis Youth Explosion Choir is the citywide youth choir of the Genesis Youth Explosion Conference (GYEC) founded by Dr. Robert Porter, founder of the Genesis Missionary Baptist Church in Sacramento CA. The choir is made up of an average of 100 youth and young adults between the ages of 5 to 25 years old from the Sacramento, CA region.
The GYEC is a summer weeklong conference that provides instruction in the development and practice of Gospel Music, Church Media, and Fine Arts. In 2001, the Porter Brothers recorded the Genesis Youth Explosion Choir's first album. Through a joint venture between Markee~ Wes Productions and God’s Gospel Sounds, GYEC reached national prominence with the single “Everytime,” written by Kevin and Joe Archie.
In August of 2017, GYEC celebrated 25 years with a Live Recording featuring songs written and developed by The Porter Brothers, instructors and past participants from the conference. In 2018, the new single "Sound of Victory" featuring the MLK Celebration Choir was released from the upcoming Genesis Youth Explosion Choir recording!
