This year has been slim pickings for new Church Choir material if you are only relying on mainstream radio for your source of information. Thank God for social media sites e.g., SoundCloud, Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, and YouTube. SoundCloud, Spotify, and YouTube have been my mainstay for great music! Thank you to all songwriters who compose music for the “Church Choir.” The songs you pen are the true heart of music ministry. Never doubt your relevance or works for the Kingdom. You are awesome vessels and I am honored to call you co-laborers.
And speaking of great Church Choir music, the Allstate Gospel SuperFest provided a wonderful platform for the awesome music ministries of some of Chicago’s best choirs. Chicago was well represented by: Dexter Walker & Zion Movement, and Joshua’s Troop (for the “New School” Gospel crowd) Chicago Mass Choir and Bishop Larry Trotter & Sweet Holy Spirit Mass Choir (for the Traditional/”Old School” Gospel crowd), and Ricky Dillard & New G and Lonnie Hunter & The Voices of St. Mark (for the Contemporary Gospel Crowd).
