Joy Tiff235Gospel music fans from urban/contemporary to Southern have options during the Thanksgiving holiday week in West Michigan churches.

Gospel singer Tiff Joy takes the platform at 6:30 p.m. Tues. Nov. 24 at Revolution Christian Ministries, 5301 28th St. Ct. SE. No tickets are necessary.

Tiffany Joy McGhee (Tiff Joy is her stage name) burst onto the gospel music scene two years ago as the songwriter and soloist on "Amazing," a radio hit for Ricky Dillard & the New G's. The celebrated tune was nominated for both Grammy and Dove Awards and won a 2015 Stellar Award as Song of the Year.

Now her own self-titled solo CD has debuted and it includes her radio single, "The Promise," currently on gospel charts. Also on the album is her version of "Amazing."
Tiff is the daughter of Bishop Timothy B. McGhee of the Free Spirit Ministerial Worship Center in South Holland, Ill.
