motion picture “The Preacher’s Wife” starring the late Whitney Houston and
Denzel Washington.

Whitney Houston. In addition, the choir made guest appearances on
high-profile television programs such as: Saturday Night Live, Good Morning
America, The Today Show, The Ebony Awards, The Dove Awards, and The NAACP
Image Awards. The choir also starred in a commercial for Volkswagen which
aired throughout Europe, on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, performed during
