Chicago, IL – Multi-Award winning songwriter and Inspired People recording artist, Pastor Charles Jenkins and his electrifying choir – Fellowship Chicago – are hitting the road this month for Inspired People’s “Holiday Praise: The Thankful Tour.”
Pastor Jenkins will be joined on the tour with fellow GRAMMY® winner Michelle Williams and the Prince of Praise, Byron Cage who is known for several worship styled gospel radio hits such as “I Will Bless The Lord” and “The Presence of the Lord.”
Pastor Jenkins is coming off of a huge summer hit with his radio smash #WAR that spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart and 55 weeks on the overall survey. His new radio single and latest worship anthem “Just To Know Him” features Byron Cage and is quickly making its way up gospel radio playlists everywhere. Both tracks hail from the album “Any Given Sunday” (Inspired People/Motown Gospel) that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums sales chart this past spring.
“It’s been an amazing year for us and we’re all so thankful,” says Jenkins. “We all have so much to be thankful for and to celebrate God’s goodness. The tour is going to be an amazing, uplifting and fun experience for the entire family.”
