Entry #0041 Rev. Charles Lyles
Internationally acclaimed soloist and pianist in the world famous Harlem Gospel Singers, Reverend Charles Lyles began playing the piano at age 4. Shortly afterwards, he composed his own music and became organist for a small band the Star Dusters, later known as The Charles Lyles Trio. Rev. Lyles performed in nightclubs and cabarets until he was convicted by God to dedicate his music to spreading God’s message. He traveled nationally and internationally with the Caravans, and served as a New Jersey pastor since 1981. Rev. Lyles has shared the stage with many gospel greats from Rev. James Cleveland to Bishop TD Jakes.
