Praise 104.7 Featured Video

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 are sung by choirs all over the world. With five RIAA gold and platinum record and video certifications behind them, this coterie of psalmists, minstrels and banner-wavers are poised to strike gold again with their fourth original CD, “Surrender” (Kingdom Records), that features the radio hit, “Champion.”

The group is making a rare North Carolina appearance as part of WIDU 1600 AM’s 54th anniversary celebration concert, “Let’s Go Back to Church.” Aside from SGM, the show will also feature performances from John P. Kee, the Rance Allen Group, the Williams Brothers, Bishop Michael A. Blue and Tim Rogers & The Fellas. The Crown Coliseum is located at 1960 Coliseum Drive, Fayetteville, NC 28306. Tickets range from $13 to $32.40 and are available at


Shekinah Glory Ministry made its mark with the 2001 gold-selling CD, “Praise is What I Do.” Its 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) continue to be best sellers and their 2010 CD, Refreshed By Fire, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart.
