Artiste to launch gospel album


BULAWAYO-BASED gospel music sensation Dorothy Chipo Madamba is set to launch her latest album called Promise of a Brighter Day on March 7 at the Natural History Museum in Bulawayo.


Her latest offering is an eight-track album and Madamba will first release the title track single Promise of a Brighter Day on February 21 before launching the album a fortnight later.

The album was produced by Blessing Sitotombe of Sweet Breeze Music and Stot Bass Productions.

Principal director in the Sport, Arts and Culture ministry Paul Damasane will be the guest of honour.

Madamba is a versatile and gifted gospel musician, who released her debut single titled 1 Samuel 2: 8 Jesu Wezvishamiso, a jazz track, in 2013.

Having been ministering for over 20 years, she is a celebrity in her own right and is the lead vocalist in her local church choir at the Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa.

In addition, Madamba is a member of the Zimpraise Choir under Zimpraise Holdings.

She has worked with Sounds of Worship and the United States-based Comfort Manyame, an accomplished gospel musician and mentor on a single titled New Day, released last year.

She writes her own music, which cuts across all genrés with the unifying factor being gospel lyrics.

“I love Jesus Christ,” she said.

“I am a multi-talented professional and my ultimate vision is big and broad.

“However, in my music I strive above all to minister healing to the total man so that whoever hears the music is ministered to by Jehovah Shalom, our peace out of any emotional turmoil.”

She added: “In the songs I write and every time I sing, I strive for excellence simply because God deserves the best of praise and worship,” she said.

Madamba says as a musician, she is a communicator and her soon-to-be-released album communicates a relevant message to the people.

“I sing to communicate how I feel, what I believe and above all to pass on hope to the hopeless, joy to the one who is sad and basically just to minister to myself then to others.

“The word of God says go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations.

My vision, while starting in this lovely city of Bulawayo seeks to reach out to all nations hence the diversity of genrés and languages on the tracks which will continue to increase as the ministry grows,” Madamba added.
