Shirley Murdock Stops By The Coco Brother Show

Veteran soul and gospel vocalist Shirley Murdock will premiere her new gospel radio single “Dream” on Radio One’s syndicated “CoCo Brother Live and the Spirit” radio program on Friday, July 15th @ 7:00 p.m. EST. The singer best-known for Top 10 R&B hits such as “As We Lay” and “Husband” will talk about the song that she wrote with her husband Dale DeGroat and esteemed evangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes.

The tune came to life when Murdock’s husband heard about a conference that Bishop Jakes was hosting and suggested writing a theme song for it. “Dale emailed Bishop one evening and shared some ideas with him about a song,” says Murdock who first collaborated with Jakes on his 1999 Sacred Love Songs set. “By 8 a.m. the next morning, Bishop had emailed Dale some incredible lyrics. If you’ve ever sat down and talked to Bishop…OMG, then, you know his words are so full of wisdom, knowledge and revelation.” So, DeGroat and Murdock took those lyrics, added music and crafted her new radio single, “Dream.”

“The song is anointed because it’s full of the word,” Murdock says of the inspiring ballad of hope and perseverance. “It’s like the voice of God speaking directly to your spirit, reminding you, that He’s not a man that He should lie…if He spoke it, will He not do it? This song will stir up and rekindle that word, that’s been spoken into your spirit and remind you that your dream can not…will not die.”

It’s one of a dozen musical chestnuts that Murdock either wrote or co-wrote for her first ever live concert CD The Journey (Tyscot Records) that was produced by Cedric Thompson (who’s produced Yolanda Adams and Marvin Sapp) and recorded live at The Broadcast Group Complex in Charlotte, NC.R&B divas Kelly Price, Regina Belle and gospel powerhouse Beverly Crawford performed with Murdock on various tracks.  This will be Murdock’s second gospel project with Tyscot Records. Her 2007 label debut, Soul Food, included the chart hit “I Love Me Better Than That.” For more information on Shirley Murdock, log on at or .
