The Music Ministry at St. James provides an avenue for fellowship and service for members of the congregation who share the love of singing or playing music. The Music Ministry is made up of anointed singers and choirs who present a varied repertoire of anthems, hymns, spirituals, gospel music, praise & worship songs, and contemporary music. St. James A.M.E. Church is blessed to have several choirs: the Perfecting Praise Choir, Men's Choir, and Youth Choir. Our musicians are: Rev. Edwards (piano), Adrian "Pablo" Irwin (keyboard), Doris Walker (organ), Larry Eubanks and Damath Sanford (percussion).
