A near capacity crowd enjoyed arguably the best inspiration concert of the year at the 3rd annual Spirit of Praise at Reid Temple AME Church in Glenn Dale, Maryland this week.

A foot-stomping, hand-clapping, jump up and down good time was had by one and all who witnessed gospel music’s leading artists such as the Heavenly Sons, VaShawn Mitchell, Ernest Pugh, Brian Courtney Wilson, Y’anna Crawley and music legends Richard Smallwood and The Clark Sisters all perform live.

The Spirit of Praise concert celebrated the 32nd anniversary of 1340AM WYCB and also the 3rd anniversary of 104.1FM WPRS – both Radio One affiliated stations. The concert was sponsored by a few key organizations including My Weight Doctor, the Gospel Rescue Ministries, the Center for Minority Business Development, Giant, McDonald’s and Colgate-Palmolive.

Check out the exclusives below featuring all of the special moments captured from the day.
