(November 26, 2021) - "Over 200 singers were invited," said Patrick Lundy, choir director and founder of the Ministers of Music (Ebenezer AME Church), about the "Way-Maker" album.

They are currently promoting the newest single, "He's Still the Light," off the project. Their eighth album marks the 25th anniversary of the choir.

"We're celebrating our 25th anniversary, which is a milestone, and I wanted all the Ministers of Music to be a part of it...our Georgia ministers, our alumni in D.C. and current ministers," he added about the invite to participate on the "Way-Maker" project.

A native of Georgia, Patrick graduated from Howard (University), in Washington, DC, with a Bachelor in Music Business. He formed the Ministers of Music (MOM) in 1994 at Ebenezer AME Church in Ft. Washington, MD. In 1995 MOM released their debut album "We Sing the Power;" followed by their sophomore album "Carried Me" in 1998; then "Standin'" (Allen & Allen Music Group) in 2003, which was produced by Dorothy Norwood, and then "The Fellowship" (Meridian) in 2005. It was "The Fellowship" album that garnered Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music (PL&MOM) their first position on Billboard's Gospel Albums Chart at #29. Their fifth album was "Determined" (Central South) in 2007, followed by their sixth album "Majesty" in 2014, and "By Faith" (Daywind Records) was their seventh and latest released in 2017 before the "Way-Maker" project - which peaked at #15 on the BDS Gospel Airplay Chart upon its released.

My first choir I hand picked from those that worked with in the DMV area. When I write songs it's more inspiration. We (songwriters) write off of our experiences."

Based in Washington, DC, PG&MOM has performed at the annual PBS "A Capital Fourth," for the White House with the World's Fair Tour representing the United States in Portugal, Spain and Italy, and at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The newest single "He is Still the Light" features the vocals of Beverly Askia, is written by Lundy and produced by Cedric Thompson (Donald Lawrence, Bishop TD Jakes).

"We have a Grammy Award winning producer from North Carolina," Patrick added. "...It's important to find someone you can trust with your music."
