The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is preparing to close the year with a bang as the aggregation releases its latest recording “Redeemed” during The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church’s annual Music Conference that kicks off Friday, October 4 and runs through Sunday, October 6.
On October 1 the digital release will be available for purchase exclusively on iTunes and on www.brooklyntabernacle.org. As a bonus, the soul-stirring track will be bundled with a free-with-purchase download of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
The poignant “Redeemed” anthem was first recorded by the Christian band Big Daddy Weave and became a #1 Christian radio hit in 2012. It’s currently nominated for Dove Award as Song of the Year.
“I was in Nashville mixing the Love Lead The Way album and heard the song on the radio,” choir founder Carol Cymbala recalls. “I wasn’t familiar with it but it struck a chord with me. The song’s message of redemption is relevant to us all and I felt it would be a wonderful song for the choir to record for our audience.”

It’s been a great year for the legendary Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. The Grammy Award winning ensemble kicked the year off by singing its dynamic rendition of “The Battle Hymn of The Republic” at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol with a worldwide television audience of a billion people.
The group was featured on the cover of The New York Times, highlighted in Time Magazine and performed on The Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” program. Its 27th album Love Lead The Way debuted at #1 on iTunes Christian/Gospel albums chart in the spring.
