Up Next Charles Jenkins wants your attention for Any Given Sunday…

GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter and Inspired People recording artist Pastor Charles Jenkins and his electrifying choir Fellowship Chicago have been on the road for two solid weeks spreading the word about its outstanding new album “Any Given Sunday” (Inspired People/Motown Gospel) that hits stores everywhere this week. The promotional tour began in New York City with a round of personal appearances and media visits. From there the tour took the ensemble to Baltimore, MD; Atlanta, GA Columbus, GA; Birmingham, AL and Montgomery, AL. “It’s been a great response,” Pastor Jenkins says. “My wife and I have been amazed at the responses in all of the cities. In Columbus, there were women with walkers and canes holding up their phones to record the performances. IN another city, I was leaving out to get to the next event and people were giving me testimonies and shaking my hands. It’s really been a great run.”

An established Grammy® Award-winning songwriter and pastor of the 8,000-member Fellowship Chicago church, Pastor Jenkins burst into the national spotlight when he and the Fellowship Chicago choir’s radio debut “Awesome” topped Billboard Magazine’s Hot Gospel Songs chart for 22 weeks in 2012. It won a BMI Award in 2014 for over 50,000 lifetime radio spins.

Taking place on Monday, July 13, 2015 in New Orleans at the Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church, tickets for Bishop Morton’s live recording are available for purchase now online, ranging from $10 – $30, and will also be available on-site.

As he prepares to retire from an historic career in international ministry as the founder of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCFI), the outgoing presiding bishop’s global influence on gospel will be recognized with several milestones this year, including Bishop Morton being honored as the 2015 recipient of the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards on March 28th, and as an honoree by the Gospel Music Association’s upcoming GMA Honors 2015 on May 5th.

Bishop Morton’s live recording will kick off a full week of celebration of Bishop Morton’s career, including a special white tie gala honoring Bishop Morton presented by the FGBCFI, and this year’s Full Gospel Conference 2015.
