U2 plays “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” with a gospel choir in church, 1987

Sep 1, 2013 By Abraham

After releasing “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” U2 heard a cassette featuring a gospel choir from Harlem covering the song. While on The Joshua Tree Tour in 1987, the band met up with the choir at their church and rehearsed the song with them, backed up only with guitar and a conga.

U2 must have been happy with the rehearsal, since the choir joined them a few days later at Madison Square Garden.

This clip is from the Rattle & Hum DVD.
