The Voices of Praise
If you don’t feel a rush of exhilaration when you hear The Voices of Praise, you must have walked into the wrong church. The musical pride and joy of Center of Praise Ministries (at 23rd and Capitol in midtown) is only some 35-members strong, but fills up the massive church like 1,000 voices—and not because of the microphones. Whether singing traditional or contemporary hymns, worship choruses or anthems, this choir’s electrifying power will jolt you right out of your seat and onto your feet, just like a good gospel group should.
