Most Philadelphians don’t realize that the largest working musical instrument in the world is built into one of the city’s landmarks, the former John Wanamaker department store, now Macy’s, at 13th and Market streets.
The Wanamaker Grand Court Organ at Macy’s is a 7-story-high contraption bigger than most people’s houses, even rich people’s. The vast maze of 26,677 pipes and baffles and bellows and wires and wooden stairways lies hidden behind what many of us have always thought was the Wanamaker Organ.

Ebenezer Baptist Church Singers Annual Musical was a monumental experience. It was a spiritual set-up from the Holy Ghost, to move his people to a closer and deeper relationship with God. From beginning to end every song was a step in the direction to freedom, healing and peace with God. We always have to do something to let God know that we are willing to accept HIS help. The first step is to pray. Then don’t stop there pray for someone else! The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much.
Lead songstress, Sis. Chrishira Perrier. Enjoy this opening song!
