Pics & Recap: Jonathan Nelson Live Recording at Kingdom Worship Center

(May 19, 2012)  On Saturday night I and MorningChurch team member Steven Jefferson were able to attend the recording of the forthcoming musical CD by Jonathan Nelson and co-produced by Kenneth Shelton, at the Kingdom Worship Center (Bishop Ralph L. Dennis and
Elder Deborah S. Dennis) in Baltimore, Maryland.

Unlike previous recordings, concerts and releases by this Baltimore area native, Min Jonathan Nelson, chose to have this event at a smaller venue and with little to no pre-advertising of the event. He reiterated in his opening remarks that he really wanted to have a family church feel for this project. The lack of advance notice for this event, however, in no way effected the crowd which brought a full house from door to door!

Opening the concert was guest artist, Mario Brown, from Milwaukee, WI. Jonathan Nelson and group of singers “Purpose” soon followed with an energetic opener entitled “Yes, Lord” lead by BET Sunday’s Best contestant, John McClure. MorningChurch’s very own team member, LaTrisha Perkins, (see pics below) was singing with the group again as she has for a number of years.  Todd Dulaney, best known for his song “Pulling Me Through,” and Lowell Pye

Some of the stand-out songs of the evening included the Walter Hawkins-esque song “Worked it Out,” “God Is Blessing,” which included the entire congregation joining in with the refrain, ‘Unlocked, Released, Immediately, Suddenly’ and “Strong Finish” the title track of the album that will be released on Karew Records.

Sticking with the family feel of the night, even in the midst of some technical difficulties beyond their control, Jonathan Nelson improvised and invited guests to take the stage and sing. The crowd was treated to bouns impromptu versions of Lowell Pyle singing “Here I Am to Worship,” Kierra Sheard, “Thank You Lord” and Maurrette Brown Clark singing, “Just Want to Praise You.”

Look out for the CD to be released later this year and the Twitter trending topic inspired by the night #FINISHSTRONG. For more information on Min Jonathan Nelson visit: and to see pics of the event, scroll below.
