Saturday night October 6, at the “CITY OF PRAISE MINISTRIES” in Landover, Maryland was a night to behold!! It was the night that WYCB Celebrated their 40th Anniversary of playing The Best Gospel in the DMV and around the world online @myspiritdc.com
WYCB was the first station in the United States to play Gospel 7 Days a Weeks, 24 Hours a Day.
The Celebration opened with DC’s own “THE SOUTHERN GOSPEL SINGERS.”
They were followed by a Young Group out of Baltimore called “KADESH”!! The lead singer also sings with Ricky Dillard and she was simply fantastic, and the Choir of Young Folks set the place on fire and left the SPIRIT OF PRAISE crowd talking and mumbling about KADESH!!!
Charles Butler & Trinity who has been on the Celebration for 9 straight years sang third and did exactly what they have been doing over the years – FANTASTIC.
DONALD LAWRENCE & the TRI-CITY SINGERS sang a number of their hits from days of old and some of their new material.
RICKY DILLARD AND NEW G – electrified the crowD as they have over and over again with a combination of traditional and inspirational hit songs.
The Celebration paused for a few minutes as Radio One Honored “RICKY DILLARD,” “DONALD LAWRENCE” & “JOHN P. KEE.”
The last group for the night was “PASTOR JOHN P. KEE & NEW LIFE COMMUNITY SINGERS!! Unmistakably the CROWN PRINCE OF GOSPEL – PASTOR JOHN P. KEE!!! They first of all sang for one hour and a half and while some had to leave, the crowd for the most part stayed till the Very End!!!! This City loves John P. Kee & New Life!!!
It was a wonderful Celebration as WYCB CELEBRATED 40 YEARS & 11 Years for PRAISE 104.1.
We’re see you next year for the 12th Annual SPIRIT OF PRAISE CONCERT!!!
