Joyfull Praise, an upcoming 18-member musical choir consisting of musicians drawn from praise and worship teams from churches dotted around the Midlands capital, will launch their maiden DVD project early next month.
Group founder Gamaliel Blessing Madhindi informs that supporting acts Sharon Manyonganise from ZimPraise, Mabel Madondo (Thousand Voices) Minister Chenge (Beam Of Hope) and other various musical groups will join hands with the gospel ensemble.
Said Gamaliel: “We will bring together most praise and worship/acapella teams from the city. Known recording artists within our group include Rudo Tania Wuragu (Awake) and Adrian Nyangombe from Vocal Offering. Our vision is to promote young people by being a platform that exposes their gifts, as well as giving them something to live for. Joyfull Praise is also here to pluck them from criminal activities associated with mostly, unemployed youths.”
He added: “The LFCC Hall next to Cecil Hotel (3rd Street) is the place to be, come 8 November. Our DVD album will be packed with no less than 20 gospel gems that cut across the language and culture barriers. They include Bayethe (Ndebele), Ngarinamatwe (Shona) What A Mighty God, and Kae le Kae (Suthu), to mention but a few.” A business management graduate from a Tshwane Institute of Technology in South African, Gamaliel did primary education at Bata, moved to Fletcher for his ‘Os’, and was a Chaplin High school advanced level student. Currently establishing ministry with his father Apostle Madhindi of Victory Life Tabernacle, a renowned local cleric, Gamaliel urged his peers to be the best in ‘doing you because no one can do you better than yourself.’ “If God wanted you to be them, He would have made you them – in short, be yourself,” he advised.
Gamaliel is also clean-humour stand-up comedian ‘PlophetOthy’ (Othniel Moyo)’s manager, and they have gone around Gweru giving constructive criticism and promoting a godly way of life via humorous presentations. Read more Gweru news on
