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]

Singles and music video[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]

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.

Touring[edit]

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.
