East Side at 71st Street
Tasha Cobbs won her first-ever Grammy for Best Gospel/Contemporary Music Performance for 'Break Every Chain.' in 2014, from her album, Grace, a moving example of the raw power of a live worship experience. The 2002 release of Smokie Norful’s debut album I Need You Now, heralded the birth of a new Gospel legend. That project, led by the instantly classic title song, achieved gold-certification while winning the first of the numerous awards that would mark his truly groundbreaking career. In the decade since then, Smokie has sold more than two million albums, earned four #1 albums, received countless GRAMMY®, Dove, and Stellar awards, and has twice been named Billboard magazine’s 'Gospel Artist of the Year.' Pastor Charles Jenkins is a dynamic, inspirational and visionary religious and community leader who is widely known as the senior pastor of the legendary Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois. Six-time Stellar Award-winner and Grammy Award-nominated recording artist VaShawn Mitchell soared to the top of the charts in 2011 with his mega-hit single 'Nobody Greater,' from his top-selling, award-winning album Triumphant. Kierra Sheard is a Grammy Award-nominated, GMA Dove Award and Stellar Award-winning recording artist and songwriter. God in song. Brian Courtney Wilson was raised in the Chicago, Illinois area.
