In December of 1999 Cheryl released the CD entitled, "Middle Zone." The release of Middle Zone shared with the rest of the world what was evident to those who had experienced and enjoyed this ministry for so many years. The "Middle Zone" CD included a variety of music styles that demonstrated the depth of Cheryl''s ministry. Cheryl is able to minister to several aspects of the body of Christ from many different perspectives. Most importantly, this anointed woman of God has a passion for what God has called her to do.

“Real Praise” released in December 2005 has already received much attention and great acclaim. The songs—many of which were co-written or written by Cheryl on the Real Praise project were inspired by personal relationship with God, struggles and trials, victories and triumphs and above all the Word of God. This project is a true reflection of growth both spiritually and vocally. Thanks and praise are resounding themes of many of the songs on this project. “Over There” was written over a span of time when Cheryl lost her father, older brother, two older sisters and several close family members, friends and ministry partners. It speaks of the hope of Christians that we will see each other again. “Mount Up” with a catchy upbeat flavor makes foot-stomping a must. Ballads like “Zion”, “Everything You Need” and “Praise Waiteth” quickly bring you into the spirit of worship. Once again Cheryl includes the “Church Medley” songs about thanks with a modern yet familiar sound that brings you right into a Friday night old fashioned service. This project has something for everyone. The title cut “Real Praise” has a bold contemporary sound and ends with a churchy stunning praise.

Cheryl is the founder of First Ladies in Praise (FLIP), a platform that brings first ladies together for a time of encouragement and sharing and ends with a concert featuring first ladies.
