Bounce TV Premieres Charles Jenkins’ “Holiday Praise” TV Special On Christmas Day

The show also features appearances by Tasha Page Lockhart, Isaac Carree, Donishia Ballard, and Dexter Walker & Zion Movement.
The shepherd for the 8,000-member Fellowship Chicago, Jenkins burst onto the national stage when his global worship anthem “Awesome” topped Billboard Magazine’s Hot Gospel Songs chart for 22 weeks in 2012. His foot-stomper “War” spent five weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and was cited by the magazine as the most played gospel song of 2015. Jenkins currently has a Top Ten hit with “Winning” and his tune “Christmas Music” just made its Hot Gospel Songs chart debut at No. 21.
