New Shekinah Glory Ministry film debuts at No. 4 on Billboard Chart

Shekinah Glory Ministry

According to a news release, the RIAA certified platinum-selling praise-and-worship ensemble, Shekinah Glory Ministry’s (SGM) new concert film  “Refreshed by Fire”  has debuted at No. 4 on Nielsen Soundscan’s Top Christian Music Videos chart and No. 11 on the Top Music video charts, sandwiched between a new Jimi Hendrix DVD and Beyonce’s “I Am the World” video. The much-anticipated concert film is a companion to last year’s No. 1 live double CD, “Refreshed by Fire.” Filmmaker Joel Kapity recorded the elaborate concert before a SRO crowd of 3,000 at Shekinah Glory Ministry’s Chicago area home church, Valley Kingdom Ministries International. 
With divine pomp and circumstance, the reel showcases emotion-packed singing from a variety of virtuoso vocalists covering rock-edged music and dance rhythms to quiet melodies, dramatic stage lighting, colorful banners and the synchronized praise dancing that have made the ensemble’s programs a fan favorite for the last decade. One particular highlight is the nearly 15 minute “The Minstrel’s Release” segment that showcases a lone dancer telling a story of a Biblical battle through her gestures as a guitarist’s strings illuminate the tale while a graphic artist paints a picture of the victor on the spot that is revealed at the end of the suite to rousing applause from the congregation.
The DVD is rounded out with behind-the-scenes footage and commentary on the ministry’s evolution that helps explain what has led to Shekinah Glory Ministry’s top ten hits such as “Praise is What I Do” and “Yes.”
