LIVING to praise gospel choir is set to release its debut DVD titled Holy of Holies next month. The event will feature performances from renowned gospel singers who include Minister Ellard, Sharon Cherai, Minister Farie, Minister Percy, and Baba Manyeruke.
The singers are scheduled to perform in solidarity as they all have long-standing links with the gospel choir, which is believed to have backed them at some point.
The launch will be an all-night event and will be held at the Royal Priesthood Solution Ministries in Bulawayo.
Stanford Magande, the Royal Priesthood Solution Ministries administrator said the Living To Praise group is aiming to develop talent through gospel music.
“We’ll be launching our first DVD titled Holy of Holies next month. Holy of Holies is a personal encounter with God in a secret place. As in ancient days, it is said that only a high priest would enter the Holy of Holies, but because He has made us priests of our lives, we can access the innermost and sacred place. It’s a place of intimacy where one surrenders all to God,” Magande said.
“This DVD is focusing on getting people to the innermost and sacred place with the maker. People should expect miracles, signs and wonders, just like on the day of Pentecost. The Lord will pour out his spirit upon all flesh as long as your heart is prepared,” added Magande.
The DVD is comprised of 10 songs; Simakade, Avumile, Konalena, Ngavongwe, Testimony, Mwari weminana, Wahalalela, Muripo Mwari, Wazvinzwa Kaa and Mupendero Wenguwo.
Soon after the album launch, Magande said the visionary of Royal Priesthood Solution Ministries,
Prophet J Zulu, also known as the Solution Man, will take to the stage to minister to the people.
He said the 40-member choir seeks to train, guide and shape up-and-coming gospel musicians, dancers, and singers so that they can minister to communities to bring about societal change.
“Living to praise choir is a gospel group with 40 women, men, boys, and girls of different ages. It offers opportunities for young people to showcase their talents and is centred on ministering the gospel of God through various activities such as worship services, CD and live DVD recording, and holding live concerts.
“The choir started its work in April 2016 with the aim to groom, shape, and work with up-and-coming talents in ministering the gospel as well as exposing their talents,” he said. – @SeehYvonne
