From performing at major events, including the opening ceremony of the CAN 2008, to receiving numerous honours, the daughters of glorious Jesus are well deserving of the title legendary in our music space.

That makes Daughters of Glorious Jesus the Gospel music group with the HIGHEST Ghana Music Awards honours so far.
