Now under the direction of Rev.
Glynn T. Settle, the choir began
its career sixteen years ago. The
original purpose in originizing the
choir was, through music, to help
people to a better understanding
of the American Negro.
* * *
THUS, Rev. Settle, who at that
time was pastor of the Gethsemane
Baptist Church in Cleveland, used
his own church choir to foster the
cause. Still following its original
intentions, the Choir is at the pres-
ent time touring the country for
a betterment of racial relations.
Until three years ago, the fif-
teen-voice group could be heard
every Sunday morning on its
coast-to-coast broadcast over the
Columbia Broadcasting System.
Their program was on the air
for twelve years except for an in-
terruption during the second world
war when the choir toured Europe
to entertain American servicemen
abroad. The "Wings Over Jordan"
choir has the distinction of being
the only choral group sent to the
battlefront during the war.
THE CHOIR has made appear-
ances in 45 states, including places
like the Madison Square Garden
in New York, Carnegie Hall and
also Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl.
Sponsored by the U. S. Treas-
ury Department in a saving bond
sale program, the choir recently
sang over the Mutual Broad-
