Platinum-Selling Group, Shekinah Glory Ministry Will Pre-Screen Forthcoming Documentary Series

Shekinah Glory Ministry put worship and praise music into black church pulpits around the globe in the early 2000s with million-selling anthems such as “Praise is What I Do,” “Yes,” and “Before the Throne.” They have announced a forthcoming seven-episode documentary series entitled, Shekinah Glory Ministry: Beyond the Praise, that will air on a yet unnamed media outlet later this year. In the meantime, there will be a sneak-peak premiere of the first two episodes of the series on Friday, June 9, 2023, at Valley Kingdom Ministries International, 5300 W. 151st Street, Oak Forest, IL 60452. For Tickets:

The series explores the twenty-year journey of the small suburban musical praise team that catapulted to overnight success and global fanfare under the banner of Shekinah Glory Ministry. The ensemble redefined traditional concepts of gospel choir music and became the face of a new and exciting praise and worship experience and music genre in African American churches across the world with a string of best-selling albums and visual media projects. Along the way, they earned five RIAA gold or platinum album or video certifications for projects that featured beloved hits such as “Jesus,” “Fall on Me,” and their signature track, “Praise is What I Do.”

The series begins with reflections of the visionary who launched the group, Apostle H. Daniel Wilson. The documentary series takes gospel fans behind the fame and into the choir loft for a candid examination of the personalities, internal conflicts and problems that developed when the group became one of the most popular and sought-after acts in gospel music.

Past and present members of Shekinah Glory Ministry and its staff leadership share the good and sometimes sad stories behind the music. Grammy ® Award-nominated gospel music historian, Robert M. Marovich; Stellar Gospel Music Awards founder, Don Jackson; radio personality Aundrae Russell of KJLH Radio in Los Angeles; and author, television personality and spiritual life coach, Iyanla Vanzant, all share stories of how Shekinah Glory Music changed the musical landscape. Rhoda N. Lawrence is the director and producer. Joel Kapity is the director of photography and supervising producer. Joan Sullivan is the executive producer.
