My album consist of songs for everyone young, old and to those people who’ve lost hope, discouraged, you feel you are all alone, this album is for you.
hey are songs of hope healing the songs that are simply a food to your soul. I decided to do gospel music because am a product of one of many people out there who got saved through music. I believe music has got a big part to play in people’s lives, I was at a crusade and I listened to a song someone sung, the words in the song touched me and before I knew it I had already given my life to Christ. I feel for all that God has done for me I just want to be among the people that are going to help preach the gospel to the nations and music is one of the ways that I am preaching God’s word.
