The Chicago-born Bishop had the audience hanging from his every word, and he received praise for including quotes from Martin Luther King in his widely-televised speech. 

The theme of his speech was centered around love, saying it "is the only way," and adding that there is power in love. 

As reported by Independent, Bishop Curry was appointed almost two decades ago and has been outspoken against racial and economic inequality.
