Long ago, the music industry was perceived to be for miscreants and no good individuals who didn’t want an education and would rather engage in drugs, crime, and unfruitful fraternization.
It wasn’t seen as an industry that was meant for Christians and responsible individuals, but today, the story has changed.
One of the major reasons for a thriving gospel music ministry in today’s world is its re-alignment to suit and resonate with the cultural changes that are taking place in today’s world. Today, music is versatile, and gospel music comes in all styles just like secular music, infiltrating into the very fabric of all generations, culture, tradition, and style, influencing them with Holy Spirit-inspired sounds and tunes.
One artist that has consistently taken Gospel music as far and even farther than secular music today is Osinachi Joseph (nee Kalu), fondly referred to as Sinach, a Nigerian Gospel musician, songwriter, and senior worship leader at Loveworld Incorporated aka Christ Embassy.
The global award-winning singer, widely known for several gospel hits songs which include: “I Know Who I Am, Great Are You Lord and He did it again”, has taken Gospel music to heights never imagined in the past. Her songs are being sung in many countries and translated to several languages, and most recently one of her hit songs, “Way Maker” has become the first Nigerian Gospel music video to have generated over 100 million YouTube views, ranking her among the greatest musicians and songwriters of this generation.
It is amazing and uplifting to see gospel music making waves and achieving exploits in a secular world. Her achievements have given hope and inspiration to artists of all ages and class, who can now express themselves and their faith joyfully through music, in anticipation of well-deserved recognition and reward for their craft.
Sinach is definitely not done in proving that indeed Gospel music is here to stay for good and she is passionate about giving back to all her fans through her Sinach Live In Concert tour happening live this Saturday, March 30th, 2019 which coincidentally is also doubling as her birthday at the LoveWorld Arena, Lekki Lagos.
Sinach Live In Concert will feature other renowned music ministers such as; Joe Praize, Ada, Peeyou, Ayo Vincent, Sophiyah, Nolly and many more for an extraordinary and inspiring worship experience like none other.
Time is 4pm.
