The future site of the National Museum of Gospel Music was blessed last week by political and religious leaders in the heart of Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood.

The National Museum of Gospel Music is being constructed on Chicago’s Southside, which was once the home of Chicago’s Pilgrim Baptist Church.
