Gospel recording artists Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago’s hit anthem “Awesome” continues its No. 1 streak on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart for 10 consecutive weeks. “The Best of Both Worlds” remains one of the top 10 Gospel albums as well.
Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago received nine first round ballets for the 29th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards, including “Artist of the Year,” “Song of the Year” (awarded to songwriter), “New Artist of the Year,” “CD of the Year,” “Producer of the Year” “Choir of the Year,” “Traditional CD of the Year,” Traditional Choir of the Year,” and “Recorded Music Package of the Year.”
Jenkins recently was invited by Bishop T.D. Jakes to perform the song on his TBN program. “I believe Pastor Charles Jenkins’ ‘Awesome’ has reminded a troubled nation of the Awesome God we serve,” says Jakes. “It’s amazing how uplifting it is for the soul.”
“Awesome” is a universal song with a universal message. The song is a global success and has been a number one selection by choirs in churches of all denominations and cultural backgrounds. Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago have been ministering this song to standing room crowds all over the country including New York City’s Central Park, Atlanta’s Centennial Park and Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Manpower conference in Dallas, among others major events and conferences.
