Liberty University gospel choir stops in Sherman for restaurant performance
A gospel choir that's performed around the world stopped into a local restaurant this afternoon to perform for a group of worship leaders.
The Liberty University choir "LU Praise," all the way from Virginia, sang at the Sherman Cowboy Chicken.
The choir has performed all over the world including China and Trinidad and Tobago and sang for President Trump's inauguration two years ago.
They were invited to Sherman to perform for a group of 80 worship leaders gathering in Sherman from all over the country to plan for their national conference later this year called the Experience Conference.
It's the 9th year the worship leaders have gathered in Sherman, but the first for the choir.
"We've just been so graced and honored to share the gospel all across the country," said Patrick Shorts, the LU Praise Student Leader. "We've sang at churches, the White House inaugural, it's been crazy."
After the choir performed, the worship directors joined in with the choir for a performance of "Amazing Grace" in the restaurant.
"We come from all over the US," said Experience Conference pastor Scot Longyear. "We have a few days together where we're not only planning but dreaming about the future."
