For almost two decades, the platinum selling, Chicago-based ensemble known as Shekinah Glory Ministry (SGM) has set the standard for urban praise and worship music. They’ve made spiritual anthems such as “Praise is What I Do,” “Yes” and “Jesus” universally known refrains that congregations around the globe sing whenever they convene. With five RIAA gold and platinum record and video certifications behind them, this coterie of psalmists, minstrels and banner-wavers continue their rich legacy with a new offering, “Cornerstone.”
