As they continue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their national debut, Shekinah Glory Ministry recently made a virtual visit to the campus of the historic Howard University in Washington, D.C. In a fun and informative HUR@Home Facebook Live / YouTube session, they talked with radio legend, Jacquie Gales Webb at Howard’s WHUR 96.3 FM, about their rich history and their new radio single, “Reign Jesus [House Remix]” (Kingdom Records).
Sherree Lee, one of the original members of Shekinah Glory, and Cedric Ford, former music director for Shekinah’s home church, Valley Kingdom Ministries, were both on hand to discuss the roots of the Chicago ensemble’s poignant history that ushered in the urban praise and worship movement.
They also discussed the various projects in the works to commemorate and celebrate their 20th anniversary. Among them is a club remix of the song “Reign Jesus” – from their “Praise Is What I Do” album in 2001 – that was recently remixed by GRAMMY® Award winning DJ Maurice Joshua.
Joshua, who has remixed tracks ranging from Diana Ross to Beyoncé, was on hand to talk about his approach to remixing the twenty-year old track and making it fresh and new. Aside from the new instrumentation, it also included new lead vocals by the song’s composer Cedric Ford and Sherree Lee.
