Charles Jenkins Sounds The War Cry

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

PastorCharlesJenkinsAlbumCoverAward winning songwriter and Inspired People recording artist Pastor Charles Jenkins’ new single War has been effective in sounding the alarm to rally the church to action.  “War is a victory anthem, fight song, and an inspirational prayer,” says Jenkins. “I believe everyone is fighting for victory in one way or another every day.  Sometimes life is like a boxing ring and Satan brings new and often multiple opponents into our lives. This song is a reminder of who you are, whose you are, and calls on your faith, strength, and hope in God. It is a reminder not to settle for defeat when victory is an option.”

War is the first single from Any Given Sunday, the follow up disc to Best of Both Worlds that yielded the hit Awesome.  The new CD features Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago Choir with guest appearances from Rev. Clay Evans, John P. Kee, Beverly Crawford, Byron Cage, Jonathan McReynolds, Sean Hodo, Kevin Vasser, Tanesha Jefferson and the new Inspired People recording artist Donishisa Ballard. The CD hits stores and digital outlets March 17th.
