Tri-state Local Gospel Artist Spotlight

Tri-state Local Gospel Artist Spotlight #1

The award-winning Rev. Ernest Davis Jr.’s legendary Wilmington- Chester Mass choir is comprised of singers from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Their 1988 debut “Victory Shall be Mine” (Sweet Rain Records), yielded hits like “Ride on King Jesus” and “Sovereign”. After the death of Rev. Davis Jr., in 1991 Inner City Communications radio executive Chris Squire, took over the 30+year old choir and kept it alive. The choir celebrated winning 2 stellar awards recently as Choir of the Year and Traditional Choir of the Year.

They have been nominated multiple times, winning their first two Stellar awards in 1992 for Song of the Year “He’s Preparing Me”, which spent over 70 weeks on Billboard Magazine Gospel Charts, and won Choir of the Year for that same recording.
