Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago Ft. Le’Andria have received an early Christmas gift.

It marks the eighth unique Billboard No. 1 for the Chicago-based pastor, Jenkins, over the course of his five-year career as a recording artist. The song also makes its first appearance in the Top Ten on the Billboard Digital Gospel Songs (sales) chart, coming in at No. 10.
“Grace” anchors the forthcoming and tentatively entitled album, “Keep the Faith,” which will release in 2018. The project will be recorded live during the New Year’s Eve service at Fellowship Chicago, which is located at 4543 South Princeton Avenue, Chicago, IL 60609. The event starts at 10 PM and admission is free.
