REDUX 10 Years of Praise and Worship
A dozen years in, the Chicago-based ensemble known as Shekinah Glory Ministry (SGM) continues to dominate and set the standard for urban praise and worship music. They’ve made chants such as “Praise Is What I Do” and “Jesus” universally known tunes that choirs around the globe sing every Sunday morning. They have five RIAA gold and platinum record and video certifications behind them. Shekinah Glory Ministry Redux is a compilation of 8 songs from Shekinah Glory Ministry’s first 4 CD’s – Praise Is What I Do, Shekinah Glory Ministry Live, Jesus and Refreshed by Fire.

All of their music has been recorded at their home church, Valley Kingdom Ministry International near Chicago. Most of the songs are led by William Murphy III, Pastor Phil Tarver, Valencia Lacy, Anjanette Nero, and LaTosca Walker. The song "REVIVAL" was initially released as an exclusive in 2010 to Walmart, and is now being released nationally on this compilation.
Kingdom Records is a leader in African-American praise and worship music with hits such as Shekinah Glory Ministry’s 2001 breakthrough smash, “Praise is What I Do”. The million-selling SGM is not a choir. Instead, it’s a dynamic ensemble of psalmists, minstrels, and banner bearers who perform “under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. “ Their Hebrew name means “the glorified presence of God.” Their CDs Praise Is What I Do (#5 peak Top Gospel Albums) and Shekinah Glory Ministry Live (#3 peak Top Gospel Albums – 103 weeks on the chart) were both certified gold in 2005 and 2008 respectively. They also have three gold or platinum DVDs to their credit and their 2010 CD, Refreshed By Fire, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart.
