In its astounding continued effort and commitment to building people’s lives through the gospel and consequently restore hope through pious melodies, the heart-and-soul pleasing Birmingham based Seventh Day Adventist Church choral groups, Wonderful Voices and Wonderful Voices Junior Choir will this weekend November 4th, 2017 hold a double album launch.
According to the organisers, the long-awaited double album launch is scheduled to take place at RSA Academy in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
The evening will witness the maiden launch of the Wonderful Voices Junior Choir’s debut album, ‘Genesis’ and this music album comes exactly five years after the junior choir was formed.
On the same night, the senior music group of the Wonderful Voices will also be launching an album, their second, which is titled “His Grace Reaches Me’ after releasing their first, after ‘My Jesus Promised’ almost seven years ago in 2011.
Chairperson of Wonderful Voices Senior Choir, Sangawaka Khuoge said: ‘His Grace Reaches Me,” has 15 tracks including two remixes, whilst ‘Genesis’ has six tracks. Both albums were produced and mastered by the skilful and multi-talented Ephraim Chambota, who is best known for his prowess and craftiness and is associated with producing best gospel music in Malawi.’’
The organisers said the event will start at 18:00 hrs and is expected to finish at 21: 00 hrs adding that is the event is set to attract a cross-section of gospel lovers as well as people from all walks of life.
The event which is billed as the mother of all gospel shows will be hosted by the Sweet Monster of the microphone; Malawian UK-based award-winning veteran broadcaster, MC and radio host, MC Steve Chijota.
The outspoken vocal giant MC, Steve Chijota said he honoured and humbled to be part of the event: “The scriptures make it clear that genuine human happiness and satisfaction lie more in giving than receiving. I humbly implore everyone to come along to this special event and witness God doing wonders.”
MC Chijota adds “There is more in serving others than in being served by others and this is how much well-prepared I am geared to deliver on the day. I will give it all. Nobody has seen me giving it all like I will do on the day, come and be part of the story, part of history.’’
The double CD album launch, according to Khuoge, will also witness the unveiling of Wonderful Voices Choirs’ projects undertaken in Malawi, which the two gospel outfits are currently pursuing in the impoverished Southern African country to help in achieving the spread of the gospel.
Apart from music, also featuring high on the agenda during the eventful evening, will be a range of sumptuous food and snacks which be sold at reasonable prices.
“Nobody should worry about being hungry, as the spiritual food through music will be practically backed up by the physical food, says one of the organisers,” Doris Salema.
The proceeds from the event are aimed at helping for charitable projects in Malawi.
“All the money made from the CDs, tickets and food sales, will go towards endeavours such as helping the needy in Malawi and I would, therefore, like to appeal to all Malawians in the UK and of course other nationalities to come and join us in support us in great cause to support humanity,’’ said Khuoge.
She added: “I call upon all who would like to have a good family evening time, to enjoy the night away while listening to beautiful and inspirational gospel harmonies.’’
Khuoge said although members of both gospel groups live scattered across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, they still make sure they meet at least once a month for rehearsals.
The patrons to the show will be entertained to sweet melodies by the junior ranking Wonderful Voices Choir, marshalled by children from the age of two upwards, most of them born from families who comprise the senior Wonderful Voices Choir.
The Wonderful Voices Junior Choir is co-directed by Febbie Sulumba and Glory Alfazema.
For the past 11 years, this will be the first time that the gospel outfits will sing with soundtracks as they have largely sung acapella, says Khuoge.
Entry fees to the November 4th evening event are pegged at just £2 for adults and only £1 for children, respectively.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
