Youths from different churches in the country have been urged to take gospel music to greater heights as one way of preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ nationwide.
The call was made on Sunday by Ethel Kamwendo Banda at Mangochi CCAP Church when the church’s praise team launched an 11-song compact disk titled Dzuka Wala.
Kamwendo, who was a guest artist, classified gospel music as indisputable genre that can convert multitudes as it carries messages of hope.
“I always feel excited when different choirs, especially youth choirs, launch CDs and DVDs and invite me as a guest artist. The message I always say is ‘it is good to sing gospel music’ because it soothes distressed souls and wins those souls at the end.”
Kamwendo said apart from spreading the Good News through gospel music, the field could also be a steady source of income, citing herself and other gospel artists from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria as having benefitted from the industry.
“The Dzuka Wala CD you have launched today speaks volumes that there is talent here at Mangochi CCAP. Capitalise on the skills God has bestowed upon you by converting myriads of lives while you are earning some income,” said Kamwendo Banda.
Chairperson of the Mangochi Praise Team choir, Geoffrey Banda, said the launch of the CD was a dream come true. n
