True to their moniker, the Gospel Jubilators’ close a cappella harmonies roused Durham’s Antioch Baptist Church congregation Sunday afternoon. The quintet helped celebrate the church’s 20th anniversary with three selections, including “Count Your Blessings.” The group has performed for more than 40 years, continuing the tradition of jubilee singing popularized in the 1930’s and 1940’s by groups like the Golden Gate Quartet.
