Jubilee Showcase Commemorative DVD Collection Available

Written by: Gregory Gay

Long before Gospel Music Channel and Bobby Jones Gospel, there was a show originating out of Chicago Illinois that brought GOSPEL MUSIC into the homes of tv viewers each Sunday morning.  You can now have a piece of Gospel Music history with the release of the Jubilee Showcase DVD Collectors Edition Jubilee Showcase

Steve Ordower, son of Jubilee Showcase host, the late Sid Ordower,  has compiled the “Jubilee Showcase” compilation DVD featuring classic performances from the 1960s and 1970s of The Staple Singers, The Soul Stirrers, Inez Andrews, Andrae Crouch and Jessy Dixon, among others.   PBS has been airing an hour-long special on the groundbreaking series celebrating its 50 years since late November 2013. Scores of artists and personalities appeared on the show over the years, ranging from James Cleveland, The Staple Singers and Andrae Crouch to Rev. Jesse Jackson. At its height, “Jubilee Showcase” boasted over 250,000 weekly viewers and presented some of the biggest names in gospel.
