Albany -- A local church choir singing for a group of Albany listeners hopes to soon be able to sing for the masses.

The 16 members of Collective Praise have been performing at Oakridge Baptist Church since 2005.

The group has written and composed many of their own songs since they got together. Songs they hope to record into a Christian album.

"We just want to encourage you to have a closer walk with Jesus. And when you have no more words to say, you can say Amen. And sometimes things happen and we ask God as to why these things happen. One song that was written by Martez is called 'Why,'' said Oakridge Baptist Music Director, Ann Weathers. 

Collective Praise performed "Say Amen" to a crowded congregation Sunday afternoon to help raise money to hit the recording studio.

Anyone interested in helping Collective Praise can call the Oakridge Baptist Church at 432-7613.
