— Shirley Caesar, a 12-time Gospel Grammy award winner and pastor of Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church in Raleigh will appear on NBC's new show, "Little Big Shots: Forever Young."

Caesar joins a cast of guests, people from their 60s to over 100, showing off their remarkable talents.

"As long as I can talk and I have my strength, I'll always be singing some Gospel," she said.
