Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and pastor William Murphy will be recording his fifth album in Douglasville.
A live recording of Murphy’s fifth album, “The Overcomer’s Record,” will take place Thursday at The Church at Chapel Hill. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The recording is free and open to the public.
The live recording will kickoff his three-day conference “Demonstrate,” which will be held Thursday through Saturday.
Murphy is the songwriter and vocalist behind the Shekinah Glory worship ballad “Praise Is What I Do.” He got his first Grammy nomination for the 2013 album “God Chaser.”
Murphy met Bishop Paul S. Morton, the international presiding bishop at a national convention of The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship in 1995.
He was asked to record a song for the album released from that conference.
He was soon after offered the position as the Fellowship’s worship minister.
Murphy was presented the opportunity by Bishop Eddie Long to serve at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in 2001.
William and his wife and two children moved to Atlanta as he became the church’s senior minister of worship, a position he held until December 2005.
Murphy and his wife, Pastor Danielle, launched the dReam Center Church of Atlanta in January 2006.
