Throne Room is the sixth studio album by multiple Grammy winning gospel artist CeCe Winans. In comparison for Winans' previous projects, this one is more inspirational with more traditional songs. This was not one of Winans' most commercially successful projects as the only single spawned from the release did not even chart. Winans' follow-up album, Purified, did much better.

Album background[edit]

Winans had talked of a follow-up album to Alabaster Box but delayed in releasing it, upon finally recording the album, Winans stated:[4]

Worship is probably my favorite kind of music. For some time, I’ve really felt like God was telling me to record a very special project that would encourage people to worship. As I was completing the new record deal with Epic, I told them, ‘I’ve got to do this worship album before I can do anything else.’ It may make no natural sense to do this record right now in my career, but for the past two years I have had confirmation after confirmation that this is absolutely the right time. I know it’s all in God’s timing, and it’s what He wants me to do right now. If you are a worshipper this project will take you there, and if you’re not it will certainly give you peace.

Singles and music video[edit]Edit

While no official music video was shot for Throne Room, AOL Video and the Urge Store (among others) re-organized footage from Winans' concert DVD as a music video for "Hallelujah Praise". "Hallelujah Praise" was the only single spawned from the release.

Bonus DVD[edit]Edit

The first 1,000 copies of Throne Room were issued with a DVD that contained exclusive interviews, behind the scenes moments, live performances, and the "More Than What I Wanted" music video.


After the release of the album, Winans embarked on a 25-city tour with Anointed that had no admission fees. The success of the concert warranted a DVD and was released in 2004.
