A local praise group is preparing to go on a national tour.
Young People of Praise, also known as "YPOP," rehearsed at Meridian's Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church on Thursday night. YPOP will kick off its upcoming tour at 31st Avenue Baptist Church at 6 p.m. on March 3rd.
"We're real excited about it," William Myles says. "We're going to have a special guest. My friend, Joshua Rogers, who was the Sunday Best Winner of 2012. So, we're gonna have a great time. We're hoping for a lot of people to come out and support us."
The group originated out of the Boys and Girls Club about 12 years ago.
