First up was Claude Deuce, who sent the place into worship by singing Lamar Campbell's, "More Than Anything". Lending powerful background vocals were artists Kyla Jade, Josiah "JoJo" Martin, and Danielle Harris. Claude finished the set with "What More" a smooth tune off his latest CD, The Young Elder.
Dorinda Clark-Cole was on hand to introduce Thompson and explained how proud she was of the young lady that she spent time mentoring. She explained that her hard work and dedication was like no other and how serious she was about the gift and call of God that was on her life.
The party was officially started when the Trumpet Lady opened with "Victory" and the tone was set for an inspirational night of true praise and worship. As you sat there and witness this musical genius at work at times you thought you were in a jazz club hearing soothing music, and the next moment you felt the urge to drop to your knees in worship. Dorinda Clark-Cole joined Thompson on the albums leading single "In His Presence" where she brought forth those famous jazzy vocals that have made her legendary. DeWayne Woods stepped into lend his smooth and comforting style to "Make A Way".
