Gospel Voices launch set


A star-studded Christian inter-denominational gospel ensemble is set to launch Bulawayo Gospel Voices tomorrow at the Nkulumane Complex.


The outfit, formed on March 18 with the aim of uniting gospel musicians from all towns, consists of upcoming artistes, gospel groups and accomplished individual artistes.

Organising secretary Collen Moyo told Southern Eye Lifestyle the vision of the group is to become an internationally-acclaimed group that spreads the message of Jesus Christ through gospel music.

“Our vision is to succeed and become like other established groups such as South African group Joyous Celebration and Harare-based Zim Praise. We want to unite the people of Zimbabwe and preach the word of God through music,” he said.

The members of the ensemble are Colen Moyo, Adolf Mushonga, Lungile Ngwenya, Morrison Dlamini, Sthembile Mlangeni, Victory Sounds, Quincy Moyo, Menelisi Mthunzi, Gospel Wargon, Firm Foundation Gospel Movers, Meluswa Khabo and Maqhawe KaKristu.

Moyo said he had high expectations of the outfit and a desire to help upcoming artistes develop their talents and give them exposure in the music industry.

“We want Bulawayo Gospel Voices to be a company name in the long run, we wish to open a recording studio and also market and distribute music on behalf of upcoming and established artistes,” he said.

The gospel album launch is scheduled to commence at 10:30am and would see these gospel artistes perform. The Nkulumane constituency leadership, councillor Rapha Moyo, Thobani Ncube and Thamsanqa Mahlangu are expected to grace the launch.

Meanwhile, the artistes have invited director of Zimbabwe Music Rights Association, Clarence Garara, to listen to the challenges they have encountered since forming Bulawayo Gospel Voices.
