‘For His Glory’ Can Change A Story

Imagine standing on the stage in front of Simon Cowell, the famously irascible judge of shows like American Idol and America’s Got Talent. The youth of the Gloryland Pastors Choir did, and their voices soared.

Pastor Cedric Hayes, founder and director of the talented group of pint-sized and teenage singers, believes his mission involves more than music. Recently recognized by the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center for his leadership, Hayes tells TheVillageCelebration’s Vickie Newton why membership in Gloryland can change generations.

TheVillageCelebration is an online magazine dedicated to reporting stories that highlight the rich tradition of triumph, perseverance, and faith of African-Americans. Every day African-Americans are succeeding, living their dream, moving on up. And we want to share it with others. Welcome to TheVillageCelebration. Everyone likes a good story. Victory from defeat. Good over evil. Something from nothing. Problem is… we rarely read it, hear it, or see it. The news of the day records the American experience with a broad brush, painting a picture focused on that which dominates the daily landscape. The disasters, the politics, the wars. But look closely, life is being lived in and around these headlines.
