A spirited celebration of 82-year-old Lena Mae Perry and her legendary North Carolina gospel group The Branchettes. Stay Prayed Up documents The Branchettes as they record their first, fully live album. Through shared prayer, laughter, hardship and praise, this “church gospel noisy crew” demonstrates that music, like faith, ain’t nothing without some fire inside.
