Bishop Larry Trotter

Bishop Larry Trotter is a gospel singer, community leader, and ministerial fellowship leader who's served as senior pastor at Sweet Holy Spirit Church in Chicago for over 30 years. Raised in Chicago housing projects, Trotter found success in music and ministry beginning in his teens, organizing several area gospel choirs and serving as youth pastor at multiple churches before being licensed and ordained in 1976. Joining Sweet Holy Spirit Church in the early '80s and steadily increasing their membership, he eventually began recording high-spirited gospel albums with the growing choir, and has since performed with them across the U.S. and on six continents. With early recordings issued by gospel label Tyscot Records, Bishop Larry Trotter & Sweet Holy Spirit released Live in 1995, Prayer Will Move It! in 1996, and What's to Come Is Better Than What's Been!!! in 1999. The next decade saw Tell the Devil I'm Back, That All May Be One: United in Worship (credited to Trotter "& Friends"), Next Dimension, Already Looking Bettah!, and 2009's I Still Believe, which reached number eight on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart. How Far Back Can You Go?, Vol. 1: Just Sunday Morning Church arrived in 2010 on Trotter's own Utopia Music Group label, with Praise Revisited following in 2013 via Entertainment One. It also hit the gospel chart's Top 20. How Far Back Can You Go?, Vol. 2: Church Unplugged appeared in late 2016, and the following year saw Trotter team up with fellow gospel artist LaVarnga Hubbard for the LP Better Is Coming. ~ Marcy Donelson
