“Alonzo Chadwick starts to sing a gospel song and feels something like a jolt of electricity zap his body. The adrenalin lifts his voice until he's singing notes higher than ever before. The music takes over and he stops worrying about his nerves, his sick mother and her struggle to raise four children on her own. Even before the cheers erupt, tears come to his eyes. For the first time, he feels the power of singing. "This is it," he remembers thinking. "This is what I've been put on earth to do." Chadwick, now 34, is still singing, still feeling the power of song. Gospel music, that great rolling river of pain and joy, is his pulpit. Born in the churches and nurtured as a shield against harm and indignity, gospel music blends power, richness and pride with a rhythm all its own. Sturdy, boyish-looking and easy-going, Chadwick uses his voice to sing whenever and wherever he can – churches, community centers, corporate gigs.”
