From the time of SHEKINAH`S conception as a sound system ministry in 1996 the ministry has pursued excellence, as they have pioneered a move of Gospel sound systems in the UK and worldwide. Despite early opposition from some church leaders, Shekinah continued in their calling to reach out to the wider community.
After organising a series of free musical outreaches in the city of Birmingham and forming their record label Shekinah Records now known as “Shekinah Music” they found themselves in high demand playing at venues all over the UK. Radio work soon followed with regular spots on BBC 1xtra, Radio WM, and a show on Gforce radio based in London. Shekinah were approached by Cross Rhythms a (Pioneering Christian radio station) to do a specialist Gospel Reggae show which was very popular until they moved on two years later. After a short break from radio, the Shekinah team started broadcasting on pioneering internet radio station Ketchdis.com where they developed a mass following with their Wednesday night show dubbed ‘The Midweek Blessings Show” which is still going strong in 2021, broadcasting live on GYR (Get Your Radio) the “Big People Station”.
Shekinah have been privileged to play alongside some of the world’s top gospel artist like Kirk Franklin, Stitchie, Mary Mary, and Chevelle Franklyn, Papa San to name a few. They have also played gospel music with top secular sound systems like Stonelove (JA) and Luv Injection (UK) taking Gospel Reggae to a new level.
With every opportunity they get, Shekinah’s aim is to promote JESUS CHRIST through contemporary Christian music.
ARISE, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. ISA 60 v1.
