The National Newspapers Publishers Association honored him last week at Black Press Week in Washington for his diligence in spreading the gospel through music, radio and ministry.
“I was extremely shocked when I heard that I won this honor,” Walker said. “I quickly changed my plans to make sure I was there to receive it.”
Walker, 52, was born and raised in the Fort Greene housing projects in Brooklyn. He formed the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir when he was in his 20s and has been releasing music with the choir and by himself since.
Walker is also the senior pastor of Love Fellowship Tabernacle, a church that he founded in April1994. The church has brought together people of different races, socioeconomic backgrounds and ages.
