Gifted Abigail “Aby Christ” Matamba, a product of Christ Embassy’s talent-laden gospel music programme, proved her mettle during the live recording of her debut album titled I Testify recently.
The live recording at the packed Reps Theatre was facilitated by some of the best sound engineers in Zimbabwe, including Tamie Bima, Mbaki Nleya and Tendai Madhewu with Dave Davis providing lighting services.
Aby Christ, backed by her equally talented backing group the True Worshippers, created an unforgettable occasion for the animated audience that was predominantly made up of Christ Embassy church members.
The promising gospel musician told the Daily News that her 15-track album, to be availed on both cd and DVD, will be launched in Harare soon.
“God has made tremendous impact in my life and the only thing I can and must do for Him is to offer a sacrifice of praise and worship to him. To me this is not a career but a life,” said Aby Christ.
The young musician says her mission is to win the world for Jesus Christ through music and will use her forthcoming album to promote the good news of Jesus Christ through praise and worship.
“My favourite song on the album is Great Rain. It is a prophetic song that says great rain is coming to my life in abundance,” said the gospel musician.
Aby Christ was identified in Marondera by Pastor Ruth Musarurwa, the leader of Christ Embassy in Zimbabwe, who arranged for the young singer to relocate to Harare.
“Basically, I was picked by God to imprint his message indelibly in the hearts of people through song,” said the upcoming gospel musician who has become the second musician to come out of the local Christ Embassy after 2013 Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation Video of the Year winner Blessing “Flem B” Manyangadze .
“I have been exposed to the word and the gospel and have been flying around the world for the past five years to church meetings and music concerts where I have matured a lot.”
