Bishop Charles H. Ellis III and the Greater Grace Temple Mass Choir are excited to present their new single entitled COVERED, featuring Gospel recording artist Chrystal Rucker. It’s been 24-years since a recording has been released from Greater Grace and “Covered” puts its legacy back in the forefront.
I talked to Bishop Ellis on how this single came about, the connection with Chrystal Rucker and why this song is so important today and beyond. Get “Covered” wherever you purchase/stream your digital music.
66 years ago, Ruby Bridges was thrust into the 1960’s civil rights movement when she became the first black student to integrate a New Orleans elementary school. Rare footage from the 1961 documentary “The Children Were Watching,” shows Ruby being escorted by federal marshals to protect her from angry crowds.
Bridges thanked those who provided the footage and thanked Selena Gomez for using her 180 million follower platform to share the story. (Source: Today.com)
Selena Gomez wrote, “It was very important for me to share this with you because I think it will help you to understand why I think we Black and brown sisters and brothers need to stand united in this fight to save Black and brown lives, I want you to remember that it is all of our shared history. This is your legacy, too.”

Starks said, “Thomas Whitfield left a larger than life impression on Gospel music. The Whitfield Company is a special group of people and I am grateful they get to see the reactions of the people who love and appreciate their artistry.”
