Mr Calvin April Pilgrim Wonders

 

I’m so proud of my Daddy and glad to be with him as he received the “Dorothy Love Coates Living Legend Award” by the American Gospel Quartet Convention on January 23rd, 2020!! My Dad, Mr. Calvin April, has been a writer, producer and singer for over 6 decades. He began his career when he was just a teenager with the Canton Spirituals, ventured into the R&B genre for a while, was signed to STAX records and even performed on Soul Train with Don Cornelius! When he returned to his gospel roots, most of his major hits came as the lead singer of gospel group, The Pilgrim Wonders. He wrote, produced and sang lead on hit, “The Time is Now”, a song that stayed on the Billboard Top 10 chart for 16 months! With 18 albums to his credit and a lifetime of ministering to others, this award is well deserved and our entire family couldn’t be more proud!

Hi everyone!
I’m a member of the Junior League of Nashville’s Human Trafficking Awareness Committee and all month (January 2020) we’ve been presenting a full curriculum of trainings, education opportunities and documentary film screenings on the issue of Human Trafficking.
In partnership with some of our community partners, we are hosting a free, public event at the end of the month to candidly dig in to this issue – happening right here in our city. It would be impactful to have you join us, as influential community leaders, in this conversation.  Learn from local experts about how human trafficking impacts all of us, as community members, and understand more regarding the comprehensive efforts being made to combat human trafficking right here in Middle Tennessee.
The Junior League of Nashville and our partners want to help you learn more about this issue and be a part of the solution. Join us for an insightful program and interactive panel discussion shedding light on Nashville’s human trafficking problem and how our city is working to solve it.
