Today I shine the spotlight on Pastor Charles Jenkins who was one of the featured performers for our 14th annual Lamplighter Awards Presented by your Local McDonald’s Owner Operators. Pastor Jenkins put on an amazing performance. He only sang one song “War” (extended version) and had the Duke Energy Center for The Performing Arts rocking.
Everyone was on their feet singing, clapping their hand and stomping their feet to the number one hit song. This was Jenkins second time performing at the Lamplighter Awards Show. The first time he performed his number 1 hit song “Awesome”.
