Pastor Shirley Caesar Gives OWN’s ‘Greenleaf’ Theme Life


‘Greenleaf’ hit the air last week with a sense authenticity that you couldn’t run from

The show’s theme song is a rerecording of “Satan, We’re Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down,” a classic by “the first lady of gospel music,” Pastor Shirley Caesar. Here, get an exclusive look at the March 3, 2016, recording session in Durham, North Carolina, that produced the stirring song you hear in the opening credits of Greenleaf.

The original drama series Greenleaf is a masterpiece from award-winning writer/producer Craig Wright takes viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. Born of the church, the Greenleaf family love and care for each other, but beneath the surface lies a den of iniquity—greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values—that threatens to tear apart the very core of their faith that holds them together.

The series airs on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN
