Serenity was an obscure soul funk gospel band. The band was formed by the songwriter, singer Tyrone Dickerson. Some members of the band were Tyrone Dickerson, the guitarist Phillip Ratliff and the songwriter Joseph DuVal Ross
Tyrone Dickerson became known as a songwriter. He has written songs for many artists. He has served as music director for Yolanda Adams and Ben Tankard. He has also collaborated with Regina BelleKirk Whalum, Twinkie Clark, Marvin Winans, Chicago Mass Choir and many others.

The band probably released their first single in 1983 entitled "Tired Of This / Perfect Way". Both of these songs were recorded at Solid Sound Recording Studio, Hoffman Estates, Il.
I have chosen the great song entitled "Tired Of This". Lyrics was written by Phillip Ratliff and DuVal Ross. Music was written by Phillip Ratliff. Performed by themselves.

Tyrone Dickerson sang the other song "Perfect Way".

Serenity released another single entitled "Took a second look / I can't wait" on Magnum Opus Productions. The members were Tyrone Dickerson on keyboards, Phillip Ratliff on guitar, Clyde Davis on drums, Curtis Clark on bass, Rev.Ferlander Lewis on keyboards and Kenny Chatman on guitar. The band collaborated with the late producer Billy Carson. Tyrone and Phillip did the vocals.

Later when the group disbanded, Tyrone Dickerson formed a band called The Christian Fellowship Choir. He has also released a few albums CD along with the choir.
