Over the course of the new agreement, Columbia Records will distribute releases on the Integrity Music and INO Records labels. The rosters are home to multi Platinum and multiple Grammy super-group Mercy Me, multiple Grammy Award winner Israel Houghton, best selling new artist Kari Jobe, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Lincoln Brewster, the million selling Gotta Have Gospel series and many others. Consequently Integrity Music will distribute key inspirational Columbia Records releases to Christian retailers including the new Susan Boyle Christmas album (November 2010) as well as new releases by platinum artist Mary Mary, Tye Tribett and others.

"There is a power and a joy that flows through Integrity's music that listeners really respond to," said Steve Barnett, Chairman, Columbia Records. "Columbia Records is proud to be part of Integrity's mission and on-going success as a guiding light in the contemporary Christian Music market."

"We are thrilled to renew our relationship with Steve Barnett and the Columbia Records team," said Michael Coleman, Integrity Media's CEO.
