Nashville, TN — The Sunday morning church choir has evolved in gospel music over the past few years. Church choirs have become pristine in presentation, exceptional in musicianship and are creating gospel music that not only impacts their local congregation, but reaches across the globe. With a long list of amazing church choirs, a recent addition to the roster includes The Cathedral Of Praise Choir in Nashville, TN. Under the pastoral leadership of Bishop Jerry L. Maynard and on his new record label Jelama Records their project Bishop Jerry Maynard Presents The Cathedral Of Praise Choir debuted on the Billboard’s Top Gospel Chart at #10 and has produced a high-spirited radio single that is quickly rising up the radio charts.
The radio single, “Just Believe”, features the commanding vocals of Michelle Prather (Kurt Carr Singers and Kevin Davidson & the Voices) and has made its way up the Gospel radio charts to the Top 40 and is steadily ascending. “Our single’s amazing rise up the Gospel Charts can only be explained by the fact that God inspired me to record this project and because of the anointed, collective effort and energies from those who worked on ‘Just Believe’ with the desire to spread God’s Word through music,” says Bishop Jerry L. Maynard. “Just Believe” is receiving noted reviews at Gospel radio and is becoming a Sunday morning church choir favorite.

“With so much going on in the world today, people must still have faith and hope to believe that God is still God no matter what it looks like. That’s what this song is about!” explains lead vocalist Michelle Prater. “I’m very pleased and honored to be a part of this project and it’s nobody but God who would elevate the visibility for this choir on their first CD.”
With their inaugural release, the choir’s mission is to give the listener a glimpse of what a Sunday at Cathedral of Praise sounds like, and to give worship leaders, church choirs and music department’s fresh and anointed Worship service appropriate material that is as timeless and timely.
