GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter and Inspired People recording artist Pastor Charles Jenkins and his electrifying choir Fellowship Chicago will debut the music video for its current Top 10 Billboard Magazine gospel radio smash “WAR” on Monday, February 9th @7:00 PM EST on elev8.com. Phil Lee and Darryl Manuel directed the film for the Windy City’s Spin Artist, Inc. production company that has done work for clients as diverse as Jay Z and Kanye West to McDonald’s and the U.S. Army.
“WAR is a victory anthem, fight song, and an inspirational prayer,” says Jenkins of the festive track that boasts a New Orleans Brass band marching rhythm. “I believe everyone is fighting for victory in one way or another every day. Sometimes life is like a boxing ring and Satan brings new and often multiple opponents into our lives. This song is a reminder of who you are, whose you are, and calls on your faith, strength, and hope in God. It is a reminder not to settle for defeat when victory is an option.”
The song – #6 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart – anchors Jenkins’ sophomore album “Any Given Sunday” (Inspired People/ Motown Gospel) that releases March 17th with guest appearances from Rev. Clay Evans (founder of Fellowship Chicago), John P. Kee, Beverly Crawford, Byron Cage, Jonathan McReynolds, Sean Hodo, Kevin Vasser, Tanesha Jefferson and the new Inspired People recording artist Donishisa Ballard.
An established Grammy® Award-winning songwriter and pastor of the 8,000-member Fellowship Chicago church, Pastor Jenkins burst into the national spotlight when he and the Fellowship Chicago choir’s radio debut “Awesome” topped Billboard Magazine’s Hot Gospel Songs chart for 22 weeks in 2012. It won a BMI Award in 2014 for over 50,000 lifetime radio spins. The album “Best of Both Worlds” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Album sales chart and also featured the Top 30 hit, “I Will Live.” For more information, log on at www.inspiredpeople.music.net.
