Pastor Tyrone Jefferson
From Taking It Back to Church (2013)

The title of Pastor Tyrone Jefferson’s album is Taking It Back to Church, and that is exactly what he does on the high-spirited “Lord I Just Wanna Thank You.”

Jefferson puts his preacher’s whoop to work on this church-wrecking choir song with traditional quartet-style lyrics of gratitude. It’s a hand-clapping, tambourine-shaking good time.

Pastor Tyrone G. Jefferson Jr., a young man with an old soul, is founder and pastor of Abundant Life Tabernacle Church, a Full Gospel Baptist Church on Franklin Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana.
