#OTGYpsi: Exploring The Gospel Music Scene In Ypsilanti And The Surrounding Areas

Dec 18, 2019

Gospel music can have a great impact in the community.  The most well-known gospel scene is in Detroit, but Ypsilanti has made its mark as well, particularly at the Second Baptist Church.  For this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," Second Baptist Church pastor George Waddles, Jr. and the church's minister of music, Johhny Jordan, talk about the world of gospel found in our own backyard with WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg.
