BROOKLYN TABERNACLE CHOIR CELEBRATES
24 August 2005

The world-renowned Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir will be releasing their fifth album on INO Records September 27 titled I’m Amazed…LIVE. With I’m Amazed…LIVE, the choir presents their most eclectic project to date with a variety of musical genres represented along with featured guests Donnie McClurkin, Jason Crabb (The Crabb Family) and Luther Barnes (The Barnes Family).

Director Carol Cymbala says of I’m Amazed…LIVE, “There’s something here for everyone: black gospel, southern gospel, praise and worship, classical music.... We have a diversified congregation, people from Trinidad, Korea, Japan, Jamaica—people from all over the world—they all love these songs and have been blessed by them.”

I’m Amazed…LIVE features 11 songs in addition to one worship medley that create a string of anthems showcasing the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s ability to usher listeners to a time of worship. Penned by Carol Cymbala, the title track came to her after a weekend speaking engagement before choir directors.

“I thought I had about 30 minutes to speak, but it turned out to be more like two hours,” Carol explains. “I began to share how a choir was more than singing just to be singing, how we’re suppose to reach out with our song and message, beyond the walls of the church.”

True to her word and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir mission, proceeds from the choir album sales fund important church outreach ministries such as the “Adult Literacy Program.” The choir also recently returned from a trip to the maximum security Louisiana State Penitentiary, where they performed for an event titled The Power of Freedom to the inmates and public. The entire program will air on WMBI in Chicago on Labor Day.

“We receive so many letters from people who have been ministered through the music,” Carol shares. “It’s just wonderful when you can hear how God has touched people, just by listening to the music. That has always been our goal, that is why we do what we do, and that is why it’s always worth it.”

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir began in 1973 as an extension of Pastor Jim Cymbala’s ministry in the church. Over the years, the choir has grown to welcome more than 300 members, selling over 4 million copies of their projects, as well as honored with six GRAMMY awards, and performances around the world most recently in Japan.
