Church Friends

Church Friends


EMPOWERMENT
Sunday - 9:45AM

Church Friends consists of singers & musicians who all met through a number of music & church affiliations. "One day, I realized that we always ended up together, either performing, supporting each other, or simply as friends. It only made sense to come together, and do what we do best, make music..." said George Young, the founder. They have collectively shared the stage with  Grammy-award winners Aretha Franklin, Fantasia, Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin & The Clark Sisters, just to name a few! "Our goal is to tell the world about what keeps us all going...not just music, not just church, but God!"
