1. Pastor Shirley Caesar is still inspiring the world after 40 years and 40 albums.~ First Lady of Gospel
Caesar said she is concerned about too much change. “One thing that I don’t approve of is mixing the world with it. I think that if the world is gonna shake their booty, then don’t bring that to the church.” Caesar said.“Let them have their own stuff and let us keep what we have.” Caesar said she embraces change “As long as they are talking about Jesus. If you take Jesus out, you have nothing.”
