This dynamic community choir officially debuted in November 1994 at the Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington, Maryland. Since that time, the Lord has blessed PL&MOM to minister throughout the United States and abroad. Consisting of some of the most outstanding vocalists in Washington Metropolitan Area, the Choir includes ministers of music, choir directors, soloists and ordained ministers of the gospel.
Throughout the Choir's existence, they have been privileged to appear with a virtual "Who's Who" in the gospel music industry and with secular artists such as B.B. King, Lyle Lovett, Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson, Jennifer Holliday and others. They have also appeared at the White House, before the Senate, represented the United States at the World's Fair in Lisbon, Portugal, toured Spain and Italy, performed on the stage of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, at the Historic Howard Theatre, for the Philadelphia 76ers and at innumerable other prestigious events and venues. As a testament to the dedication of choir members, on September 9, 2006, the group ministered at the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast, at the Reid Temple AME Community Day, opened for Albertina Walker and The Caravans Reunion CD Release and taped BET's Bobby Jones Gospel with Tramaine and Edwin Hawkins, all in the same day!
PL&MOM have recorded and released six (6) CDs: "We Sing The Power" (1995), "You Carried Me" (1998), "Standin'" (2003), "In The Fellowship", (2005) and a Christmas CD, "A Child Is Born" (2007) and "Determined", recorded on November 7, 2009, during the Choir's 15th Anniversary Celebration at Reid Temple AME Church, featuring the legendary Lady Tramaine Hawkins as special guest. The project from this momentous occasion was released in July 2010. After receiving a national distribution contract from Central South Distribution, Inc., PL&MOM held a National CD Release Concert at the newly renovated Historic Howard Theatre in Washington D.C. on June 28, 2012. "Determined" is now available at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, FYE and other retail outlets.
Over the years, the group has been nominated for Stellar and African American Religious Connection Awards. In August 2006, the Choir was afforded the honor of receiving the first En Sound Music Awards for Artist of The Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year for "In The Fellowship". PL&MOM were also honored to participate in three (3) of the activities celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama.
The Choir consistently supports a variety of charitable causes, rendering benefit concerts to aid Children's National Medical Center and victims of hunger, disease and domestic violence.
