Marvin Sapp, Kirk Franklin and Israel Houghton and Donnie McClurkin, The King’s Men, brought the crown of Christ to Barclay’s Theater in a non- stop rousing praise-fest like none I have ever seen.
From the start of the show to the very end you are left in a glow of life bouncing on your feet and waving your hands. Each one of the men showcased their songs and stories in well thought out segments.

Without being preachy or over the top the men were able to deliver the good news of the gospel and get others to bond.
Some of the reviews from last night:
- “Lord.. what a blessing this show is.”
- “Not corny but real. That’s what i am talking about.”
- “I never knew you could get joyful talking about God.”
- “Better than anything I have ever seen in gospel concerts.”
The audience was a mix of many who were followers but some who were coming just out of curiosity.The spirit filled call and responses sent some dancing to the aisles with the spirit! Mavin Sapp’s deeply personal solo set left people weeping. Kirk the enterprising showman exemplified the title “Gospel’s Showman”. Israel Houghton told a moving story about his mother that moved one young woman seated behind me to weep openly and repeat over and over, “Me too”. Amber Bullock and Isaac “Ike Nice” Carree add the dose of youth that inspires hope in you that gospel music has a future.
Keep your eyes peeled because you may be seeing this show on television soon!
After leaving the show, the vibe was one of hope and peace. One young man passed me headed down into the subway humming the tunes from the show. His step seemed lighter and his burden less.
