Shirley Caesar Reunites With Sanchez Harley For Mother Emanuel AME Church Tribute
Award winning producer Sanchez Harley returns to the studio with Pastor Shirley Caesar to produce a moving musical tribute in the form of the composition destined to be a classic and aptly titled Mother Emanuel. The song, written by Reba and Donnie McGuire and Chip Davis celebrates the enduring spirit of the members of Charleston’s Mother Emanuel AME Church who united a nation after tragedy befell the congregation resulting in the loss of nine lives during its weekly bible study last year.
Chip Davis presented the idea of the song to Donnie and Reba McGuire and upon its completion, contacted Sanchez Harley, who insisted that Pastor Caesar should hear it. Pastor Caesar loved the song immediately and prevailed upon her record company to make it part of her upcoming project.
Mother Emanuel is one of eleven songs comprising Fill This House, the new CD from Pastor Caesar scheduled for release on Friday June 3, 2016
