THE BISHOP’S CHOIR IS BACK AFTER TWO YEARS WITH NEW SINGLE “WITH JOY WE DRAW WATER” AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING AND DOWNLOAD
SINGLE AVAILABLE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1ST. GOING FOR IMMEDIATE ADDS AT RADIO
TRENTON, NJ (October 1, 2021) – There are church choirs that can sing and then there is The Bishop’s Choir. Comprised of young adults, this choir from the garden state’s capital city of Trenton, has been recording music for 22 years and counting. The uniquely named aggregation was derived from the late Lady Mae E. Wilcox, who named the choir in honor of her husband and pastor of Grace Cathedral Fellowship Ministries, Bishop Jerome S. Wilcox.
Under the leadership of Jeanne Wilcox Rawls (Minister of Music) and D. Corey Shipley (Producer and Musical Director), The Bishop’s Choir is a force to be reckoned with as it pertains to that classic choir sound, mixed with a traditional sound, yet a contemporary vibrato.
In addition to being the producer and musical director for the choir, D. Corey Shipley is a highly sought after songwriter and producer on the choir circuit, as he has written and produced songs for Craig Hayes and the United Voices, Malcolm Williams and Greater Faith, Charles Butler and Trinity, GMWA and the Choir Master, Ricky Dillard.
Not your average church choir, The Bishop’s Choir, has already released nearly half dozen albums over the course of two decades and singles like: Trust Him, He Will Answer Prayer, Be Steadfast and Hold On have all made a huge impact at radio stations across the country.
After a two year hiatus, The Bishop’s Choir is back with a new single entitled, With Joy We Draw Water, a cover of Bishop Charles Lyles and The New John Howard Caravans. With this musical offering, the choir stays true to their essence and sound that they are known for. A brand new EP is scheduled for first quarter 2022 release.

ABOUT THE BISHOP’S CHOIR
The vision of the music ministry of Grace Cathedral Fellowship Ministries, Inc., Trenton, New Jersey was birthed by the Minister of Music, Jeanne Wilcox-Rawls, the Bishop’s daughter. The Mass Choir and the Gospel Chorus came together to form “The Bishop’s Choir” in honor of pastor and founder, Bishop Jerome S. Wilcox.
The fruit of the choir’s labor was envisioned on November 11, 2000, when they released their first LIVE CD entitled Live At The Cathedral. Their second recording took the choir to a new level of ministry, which is currently exhibited as they now minister throughout the country.
The Bishop’s Choir was nominated in 2013 for three Rhythm of Gospel Awards in a plethora of categories that included: Church Choir of the Year, Contemporary Choir of the Year and Traditional Choir of the Year, for which they won for the Contemporary Choir of the Year and Traditional Choir of the Year.
