History

This interdenominational choir of 50 voices known as the "Majestics" is under the Christian leadership and spiritual direction of Dr. Kirdell S. Minor. The Majestics were organized in Washington, D.C. in 1956 at the Church of God. The Choir began with a group of young people who loved to sing and wanted to spread their music ministry outside of the walls of the church community. In 1970, the Choir was reorganized with 13 members and since its inception; the Choir has continued to spread the greatest treasure -- the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Majestics attribute their longevity as a choir to their love for God and the inspiration they give and receive through their ministry in song. It is through their ministry of musical praise that they seek to bring souls to Christ. The choir does not sing to benefit monetarily, but to grow and benefit spiritually.

God has blessed the Majestics to share their music ministry with a multitude of churches, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, television and radio stations, private concerts, and federal and District government agencies throughout the Washington metropolitan area. The Majestics have also traveled extensively throughout the United States as well as abroad in the Bahamas, Naples and Rome. In addition, the Majestics have been privileged to participate in special ceremonies such as the annual Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, Black History Month programs, Broadway musicals, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Holiday Festival, Democratic campaign rallies, the opening of the first Washington Convention Center, and were the first gospel choir to perform at the National Education Associationís annual convention, and in April 2013 performed in the stage play Love & Lies, in Washington, DC. In honor of their distinguished talents and services to the community, the Majestics have received numerous honors, awards, keys to several cities, and commendations for musical excellence, spiritual devotion, and community services.

To further demonstrate the compassion and love the choir has for others, the "Majestics Care Program" was established in 1989. "Care" provides spiritual enlightenment and financial aid through the donation of needed supplies and equipment to the elderly, needy children, and the sick and the shut-in. The Majestics are truly a loving, caring and sharing family who enjoy singing together and lifting up the name of Jesus in song.
