Gospel legend says show will be a blessing
By Malika A. Wright
To some, she's Pastor Shirley Caesar, who co-pastors
Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church and leads the church's
outreach ministry in Raleigh, North Carolina without ever
missing more than three worship services a year.
But to millions of others, she is the "Queen of Gospel
Music," who has blessed the Christian community with her
musical gifts for more than 40 years. The 11-time Grammy
and 13-time Stellar Award winner is seen as a Gospel leg-
end, who has successfully balanced many titles for decades,
including songwriter and actress.
With the releasing of 40 albums, she has made a major
contribution to Gospel all while spreading the Word of God.
On Dec. 8, Caesar will be performing in South Florida at
the Miramar Cultural Center I Artspark at 8p.m.
