Continuing the year-long series on the Black Church in Detroit, American Black Journal took a closer look at Detroit as an important stop on the Gospel circuit and how the city has given artists their Gospel roots.

A 2015 documentary titled “Let’s Have Some Church Detroit Style” provides an up close look at Detroit’s Hallelujah Singers. They are a community choir founded and directed by Dr. E. Laquint Weaver II. The film by producer and director Andrew Sacks examines the singers’ lives and follows them to a music competition in Alabama. Stephen spoke with Dr. Weaver about the impact of gospel music in his life.
