Located in Nashville, TN, Riverside Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) church proves to be a true model of music ministry at its finest. Blessed with some of the most preeminent and award winning musicians and vocalists in the city, Riverside has earned a reputation for excellence and musical proficiency in various faith-based music styles which include traditional, contemporary, praise & worship, classical, spirituals and anthems. Congregants often leave captivated, invigorated, revived, and empowered as a result of the worship arts ministry of Riverside SDA.
“Declare Your Name” is the first single from Riverside SDA’s forthcoming debut project and represents the fulfillment of a vision to extend the reach of their worship arts ministry to the world. Penned by Riverside SDA’s Dee Hammonds, this powerful anthem acknowledges the names of God which represent the numerous praise-worthy attributes of God such as Jehovah Jireh – the God who provides, and El Elyon – God most high. Riverside SDA’s first lady, Jennifer Fordham, provides lead vocals and masterfully takes the listener on a musical journey, reflecting upon God’s all-encompassing provision and dominion. With each declaration of God’s sovereignty and character, the song builds both musically and emotionally into a crescendo of uninhibited exaltation to the Most High God.
“A few years ago we were convicted that God wanted us to capture the amazing music ministry that we enjoy at Riverside week after week, and provide it as an evangelistic offering to our broader community. We are thrilled to announce the official release of ‘Declare Your Name’ the first single from our debut Riverside Worship Arts Ministry Project”
— Furman F. Fordham II – Senior Pastor, Riverside SDA
