Rev. Milton Brunson

In 1948, the Reverend Milton Brunson organized a mass gospel choir at Chicago’s McKinley SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL; dubbed the Thompson Community Performers, the group — affectionately referred to as “the Tommies” — would emerge as the country’s oldest existing community choir, celebrating their fantastic anniversary using the discharge of 1998’s strikes collection 50 Blessed Years. In the interim Brunson and his performers became perhaps one of the most honored gospel sets of their period, issuing eight gospel chart-topping LPs and earning a Grammy prize in 1995. Their 50th wedding anniversary was also celebrated using the opening of the post office called in Brunson’s honor.
