Rev. Clay Evans was the Founder and Pastor of the Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church of Chicago. The church’s prestigious 300-voice choir was among the best choirs in the City of Chicago. The Both Reverend Evans and the choir received wide recognition on television and radio.
Dr. Lou Della Evans Reid (Rev. Clay Evan’s sister) was the choir’s minister of music and led the choir through recording career with several albums. So it was fitting that for Lou Della’s 75th birthday and 50 years as minister of music a 500-voice mass choir comprised of members from over 50 churches sang a medley of songs made famous by Reverend Evans.
