For over 25 years, Bishop Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir have spread the Gospel of Jesus to a variety of audiences, changing the lives of many around the world.  They have performed and recorded with several major secular artists, including Celine Dion, Ray Charles, Brian McKnight, Justin Timberlake, Enrique Iglesias, Brandy and Baby Face to name a few.  Walker and the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir have received numerous GRAMMY nominations for their fifteen critically acclaimed albums, including their wins for Live in Atlanta at Morehouse College and for Love is Live.  With their nomination for the NAACP Image Award for Best Gospel Artist, Walker and the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir have further cemented themselves as a power player in the Gospel music world. 

Kevin Vasser is Director of Worship and Arts at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago. The Chicago native’s big break came during his trek as former lead singer of the Chicago-based gospel group, Youth Edition, comprised of his brother and two cousins. Over the years, the singer accumulated the aplomb and headship of a dynamic solo artist that clearly converted into a supreme debut release. He illuminated churchgoers across the nation with his debut solo So Glad, a plentiful and rich live recording filled with every style of music. His latest single is "Only you can Deliver."

As a featured member of two of the most beloved Gospel ensembles of the past two decades----Donald Lawrence’s Tri-City Singers and the duo Ted & Sheri---Sheri Jones-Moffett carved a deep niche for herself in the hearts of Gospel music lovers long before the 2009 release of her solo debut, Renewed. The success of that project firmly established her as one of the great power vocalists of the contemporary Gospel age, while earning a GRAMMY nomination.

With her sophomore album, Power & Authority---LIVE In Memphis, Sheri confirms her status as a seasoned artist with trademark vocal inflections, distinct melodies, and life-changing messages.
