Pastor Shirley Caesar will be crowned the “Queen of Gospel" the last Sunday in April. The metaphorical crown was previously worn by the late Albertina Walker, who passed October 2010. Pastor Caesar, an alumna of the famous Caravans, considers Walker as a mentor, friend, and legend on whose shoulders she stands.
The crowning ceremony will take place at Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church (3100 Sanderford Road, Raleigh, NC), at 4 PM, where Caesar pastors. The service will feature six year-old Symone Spencer, performing as Baby Shirley Caesar, Michael Boone, Leniyus Sullivan, Fayetteville State University Choir United Voices of Praise, Mount Calvary Word of Faith Gospel Choir, and the mini-stage play “Hold My Mule.” Article Here!
