The Spirit of Praise Celebration, a gospel star-studded show is commemorating its 10th Anniversary at 5:30 p.m. (doors open at 4:00 pm.) on Saturday, October 7th at the City of Praise Family Ministries located at 8501 Jericho City Drive, Landover, MD 20785. The gospel community is coming to the DMV to join Radio One DC’s PRAISE 104.1 FM and WYCB Spirit 1340 AM, the groundbreaking stations that launched the first 24-hour FM and AM gospel and inspiration stations in the DMV, in its celebration of this landmark event.
It’s not often traditional, legendary, praise and worship, choir and contemporary gospel artists appear on the same program with both national awards winning artists and the rising DMV gospel talent. The show is filled with video drops, special tributes and surprises to commemorate this significant time in the history of Spirit and Praise.

Joining them will be nationally syndicated Praise talents, Griff, from Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell, Willie Moore, Jr. and Darlene McCoy, from the Nightly Spirit.
