Call in to speak with the host
Elder Goldwire McLendon spent seven decades ministering to people in song and words before he had the opportunity to minister on a world-wide stage as a contestant on Season 3 of BET’s Sunday Best, the world’s leading gospel competition television show. The spirited and charismatic, then 79-year-old gained a large and devoted group of fans as he made his way toward the show’s finale, where he was first-runner-up to Le’Andria Johnson.
Now, at age 81, he has a recording contract with Mathew Knowles’ Music World Gospel, which will release his first solo CD, The Best of Elder Goldwire McLendon. The CD, which features new recordings of songs he performed on Sunday Best, will be available online and in stores on April 24, 2012.
Mr. McLendon favors us with his presence as he shares a little more about who he is and what this all means to him.
It's good to talk.
