CHARLES JENKINS & FELLOWSHIP CHICAGO/EMPIRECover for Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago's 2018 single "Can't Turn Back."

Acclaimed Gospel artist Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago are back with their new radio single, "Can't Turn Back," from the upcoming album Keep The Faith. "Can't Turn Back" is the second cut from the upcoming project, which also marks the group's third album, and serves as a joyous affirmation featuring a rollicking Boogie Woogie bass line, punctuated by Dixieland styled horn lines and a powerful vocal performance by Jenkins.

"The song is a tribute to the foundation of gospel and soul music," Jenkins says. "You've gotta feel Gospel, and I hope people feel this one like I feel it although it's up-tempo. It's a gritty, gutsy anthem with a dose of Cab Calloway, a dose of Ray Charles, and a whole lot of Sunday morning church music."

He encourages, "Something or someone will always try to take you backward, and God didn't wake you up for that. The song is a personal affirmation, as you are encouraging yourself with God on your side your future is bright, and you 'Can't Turn Back!' I can't wait to hear churches and groups singing it everywhere."

Over the past six years, Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago have become one of the most dependable hitmakers on the Gospel music scene, lining up several Billboard No. 1 Gospel radio hits, such as "Awesome," "War," and the recent chart-topper "Grace." The latest single "Can't Turn Back" debuts at No. 30 on this week's Billboard Gospel Airplay chart.
