Pilgrim Baptist Church

3300 S. Indiana - Chicago

The Lamplighters Touring Choir will be taking a closer look at the legacy of Thomas Dorsey, the Father of Gospel Music, by making a special trip to Pilgrim Baptist Church where he did most of his famous work. They look forward to performing several of Dorsey's classics such as – Take My Hand, Precious Lord, and Peace in the Valley.

This year we recognize the 90th year since Thomas Dorsey wrote Take My Hand, Precious Lord in Chicago in 1932 following the death of his wife Nettie and infant son during childbirth. "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" was first published in 1938.

The National Museum of Gospel Music and Pilgrim Baptist Church has invited diverse choirs to perform Dorsey's music in 2022.

Sponsors: Pilgrim Baptist Church, Illinois Arts Council, and Illinois Humanities
