GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter and Inspired People recording artist Pastor Charles Jenkins may soon add a new accolade to his crowded trophy cabinet. Best known for his uplifting anthem “Awesome” (#1 for 22 weeks on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart in 2012), Jenkins demonstrated his musical eclecticism earlier this year by releasing the pulsating track “Real Love.” The infectious groove has now earned Pastor Jenkins and his backing group, Inspired People, a Soul Train Award nomination in the category of Best Gospel/Inspirational Performance. The show tapes at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 7th and airs on BET and Centric on November 30.
“It’s a huge & unexpected honor,” says Jenkins who is pastor of Fellowship Chicago, a booming urban church in the Windy City. “Like so many others, I grew up not just watching but dancing to Soul Train every weekend. I pretended that I was on the dance floor live from my house. This is an overwhelming feeling, not only for me; but for my family and friends too. I’m really looking forward to attending this amazing event.”
