Pastor Shirley Caesar is without a doubt a Gospel music legend and icon. With 40 records to date, 11 Grammy awards, 18 Dove Awards, 14 Stellar Awards and a 2016 star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the reigning Queen of Gospel took time to talk with GOSPELflava about the blessings of God on her life and ministry, her new album and took some time to dispense some good advice.
GOSPELflava: Pastor Caesar, what a privilege to talk with you. What can be said about your many years of ministry? Did you ever imagine that life would bring you to this point?
Pastor Caesar: I always knew that the calling of God was on my life from a child. I used to lay up in bed at night and visualize myself singing and preaching and having a healing service with my mother at the front of the prayer line. But if anybody would have ever told me that I would be next in line behind Mahalia Jackson to receive a Grammy for Gospel music and sing for Presidents and heads of state, and travel overseas and do films and tv. I would have never believed it , never never never. I will add to this, that this is the Lord’s doing, and its just marvelous in our eyes. I owe Him my life.
