The years during university bring such questioning about identity and future plans. There are so many changes happening behind and before you that it can become hard to find where you are rooted. The “Made to Love Concert’ gathered thousands of young adults on July 25th at the LoveWorld Center, University of Port Harcourt (Uniport) in Southern Nigeria. This event came as a beautiful reminder for all students who may have forgotten the complete joy there is to experience in Christ. With several attendants committing their lives to the Lord for the first time, there were several rededications as well. Countless students at the concert experienced and witnessed the Holy Spirit in a fresh way.

John 16:22 “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”

The joy of the Lord was released as the room erupted with praise and dancing. As the glory of God took over the atmosphere in celebration, the presence of the Holy Spirit was overwhelming.

Gospel Singer Ada Menakaya Releases New Single! “HE HAS DONE IT”

We are in the month of July and according to Christ Embassy and the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, this is the month of Thanksgiving! It appears the Lord has pressed upon many hearts the act and desire to give thanks as Nigerian gospel artist Ada Unoma Menakaya releases her newest single, “He Has Done It”. Something we are all at fault of in the Christian life is losing sight of just how much God has done for us. It is common for people to look at their situations and trust in the things around them, without really recognizing that we have God to thank for all things.

In an interview with Guardian Music, Ada Menakaya described her new hit single as a song of declaration and prophecy:

“He Has Done It is a song of declaration and prophesy that God can do all things if we believe in our hearts without a doubt. This song was written from a place of deep thanksgiving to God for what He has done in my life; it’s a song anybody can relate with.”

Menakaya is very pleased with the positive response and attention she has gained with her new releases and shares with fans of her anticipated plans for a new music video that is still to come! Menakaya thanks her faith-filled upbringing and the unrelenting pursuit of her family to raise her and her five other brothers and sisters in a home filled with gospel music from legends like the Clark Sisters, Whitney Houston, Don Moen and more.

 “Those different styles of music, as well as a strong presence in the church, helped to shape me as a singer as well as a person. There was no time I was left with options of the message to carry. From the start, I just knew it was gospel and gospel alone. I represent Jesus Christ and all I want to do is fly the banner of Christ.” She told Guardian.

Ada even gives a shout out to one of her all-time faves, and ours too! Inspired by LoveWorld artist, Sinach, Ada mentions the strong women in the gospel music industry that are true worshippers of God. Ada lives a life of deep conviction for the Lord and the great pedestal He has given her to share His glorious name in praise and thanksgiving with the world. While it is often chosen by artists to cater to the more secular side of fame for the sake of being more “relevant”, Ada proclaims:

“It is strictly gospel that speaks to everyone regardless of tribe, race or creed, with the sole aim of bringing them to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. My mission is to authentically touch and impart lives and people of all ethnicities and generations around the globe with my music and see the word of God transform and change their lives, binding up the broken-hearted”

Check out this incredible sister’s new music and be inspired to give THANKS to God for everything He does for you – And stay tuned for the upcoming music video that you don’t want to miss!

NEW SINGLE – “Never Go Down” By LoveWorld’s Very Own Pastor Israel

With each new song released in the LoveWorld music scene, comes new depths of joy and pleasure in the Lord. The genre of Gospel music has brought people together from every walk of life and every nation to share in one purpose. The expression of God’s faithfulness comes to life through the words and sounds and all are invited into the sweet revelation of being one in Christ.

In this newest single, “Never Go Down”, Pastor Israel blows us away again with his incredible talent and mastery of bringing people to a position of praise and rejoicing.

Ceflix Tunes referred to the new track saying, “its undertone is imbued with a message of love and faith at the very core, it inspires a lifestyle that yields towards absolute love and trust in Jesus, even in failing and troubling circumstances.”

The song encourages those who may struggle with the understanding that God will never let us down. Even as the world fails us, God is still going to have favor on us. This is also an important reminder to all believers. We sometimes allow the world and the failure of man to creep into our minds and confuse us. Well, we were never promised a perfect world. However, we were promised a God who will sustain us through all imperfections and hardships.

Pastor Israel, also known as PI, brings us to this understanding beautifully and artistically with warm and upbeat sounds of hopefulness in Jesus Christ.

Don’t glory in man

We have all things in Christ

Young Boy Goes Viral in America – Gospel Like You Have Never Hear It Before

While gospel music has made its way around most of the greater world well before its peak in popularity in the mid-nineties, the simultaneous rise in social networking and media has changed the game. Artists are recognized internationally and gain a following of listeners from all over the world at the share of one video.

The story goes the same for 12-year-old American boy, Keedron Bryant (Florida). After his parents, Kendric and Johnnetta Bryant posted a video of him singing gospel song “Brand New Life” he became an internet sensation.

“I sang this song ‘Brand New Life’ and then like two weeks later, we had over one million views,” Keedron said. “I need to do this more because this is getting me places that I never thought I would be.”

While there is no denying the incredible talent that Keedron has, it is only gospel music that he has ever expressed interest in singing. At such a young age, Keedron knew exactly what he wanted and God has continued to bless him in this path.

 “When I was six, that’s when I knew that I really wanted to sing gospel music…If you just heard the message of a song, you can really understand what you’re listening about and know God’s grace kept you,” Keedron said.

Little did anyone know, the video that caught the world’s attention and posted to FaceBook back in October of 2018 was the very push that God always intended to give him. Knowing what his dream was since he was only six years old, he was ready to go after it with the support of the world behind him, and with God on his side.

Just this week, Keedron had the opportunity to attend the Gospel Choice Music Awards in Georgia, USA. By the favor of God, and the people, Keedron (12) was awarded the Youth Male Vocalist of the Year in the Gospel Choice Music Awards. Through receiving this mentionable award, Keedron was recognized by gospel legend, John P. Kee and so many other artists. Not to mention, the thousands of people who began posting and sharing about him instantly upon their discovery.

Keedron continues to pursue his life dream of being a famous gospel singer and sharing the light and truth with the whole world. Parents, Kendric and Johnetta, are very grateful for the passion their son has for gospel music.

 “He wakes up in the morning signing, he goes throughout the day singing, we’ve got to make him stop singing at night, so he can go to sleep,” Kendric said. “He has put in the work, and he’s truly passionate about it,” Johnetta said.

At only 12 years of age, Keedron is ready to keep pushing towards his dream of being a world renown gospel vocalist. You don’t want to forget this name! You will be hearing it for years to come.

“Rejoice in the LORD always, and again I say, REJOICE!”

The joy of the Lord is a PROMISE! He has promised to take our mourning and turn it into dancing, He has promised oils of gladness and joy. C.S Lewis once said, “The most valuable thing the Psalms do to me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.”

“Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, Streaming to the goodness of the Lord– For wheat and new wine and oil, For the young of the flock and the herd; Their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, And they shall sorrow no more at all.

Jeremiah 31:12 (KJV)

“Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.”

Psalm 150:1-6 (KJV)

Visit Pastor Chris’ Digital Library (PCDL) to download your copy of the most spirit-filled worship and praise LoveWorld has yet to see. The best news is that it is only Part 1! Stay tuned for the coming of Part 2 while you indulge in the great joy of the Lord until then.

Grammy Award-winning Gospel Choir Jubilation Commemorates “Black Music Month” with 20th Anniversary Reunion Gala

Every year since 1979, the month of June has been recognized internationally, though mostly in the western world, as “Black Music Month”. The month of celebratory recognition and historical enrichment was first established by the 39th United States President Jimmy Carter. It is still widely supported today as President Barak Obama described in his 2016 proclamation, the richness of culture that African-American artists and music have helped America “to dance, to express our faith through song, to march against injustice, and to defend our country’s enduring promise of freedom and opportunity for all.”

After a terrible stroke, Rev. Dr. Stefanie R. Minatee, founder and artistic director of Grammy Award-winning gospel choir ‘Jubilation’, took a break from the choir without knowing when or if she could ever return. Well, God has bigger plans than any stroke or life-threatening incident. As there could not be a more opportune time for the Jubilation Gospel Choir to reunite with their founder, Minatee is back and ready for more of God.

In an interview with Billboard, Minatee shares how grateful she is to be alive and to still be able to spread God’s goodness in her life:

“God kept me here for a purpose. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be alive and still minister. Most stroke victims can’t talk or move, but he spared me. And I want to share with the world what he’s done.”

In honor of this great reunion, the famous gospel choir held a prestigious gala event at their home theater, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, on June 22nd, 2019. Not only was this event held to celebrate 20 years of incredible gospel music, but it was also the very first-time Minatee performed in that theater since before her stroke.

While Jubilation was always known throughout the gospel music scene, it was not until their featured debut on Queen Latifah’s 2009 compilation album called “Oh Happy Day: An All-Star Music Celebration” that the group was officially recognized for and awarded and Grammy. Following this, the group had the incredible opportunity to sing with Latifah in the 2010 Super Bowl. Latifah served as an honorary chair for the Jubilation reunion event, as her mother is a close friend to Minatee and member of the choir.

At the gala, Jubilation performed songs from over six albums and even sang a new song for honored guests called “It’s All About You”. This project captured the complete inspiration and witness of Minatee’s most difficult times since the stroke and how the Lord’s presence was always there for her. She states, “I’m talking on the single as I couldn’t sing the way I wanted to, but it’s a blessing.”

Minatee anxiously prepared for this celebratory night and all the joy that it will bring people. As she was joined on stage by singers from all over the country, she was overwhelmed with the support from all and looks forward to a new inspiring season with her beloved, Jubilation.

ARAMIDE – New Single OUT NOW! “I’m A Winner” (2019)

The naturally talented and passionate gospel vocalist, Aramide, is releasing new songs of truth, hope and soul this year. Aramide is back with a new 12-track album for her fans and has just released a new single called “I’m A Winner”.

“I’m A Winner”, produced by GeeMagik, is a song that exemplifies the conviction that Aramide has to live a victorious life as a Christian, believing and claiming her ability to conquer anything with Christ on her side. The song invites all listeners to join and dance in the joyous reality that we are all winners, not losers, in fellowship and partnership with God.

In an interview, Aramide shared her life inspiration behind writing the song ‘I’m A Winner’: “When things happen to me, it is the mindset I work with, every time I face challenges in life and I was like I am better off putting it in lyrics and song to build others up or be a blessing to other people. I know there are lots of people out there that need the assurance of who they are in Christ. Life may throw things at you, guess what? You are a WINNER”!! No matter what comes your way, you are victorious! It may not look that way but at the end you will WIN”.

Aramide has been with Christ Embassy since her humble beginnings in the University Fellowship Campus Choir of Believers’ LoveWorld (1995). She has continued to embrace the genre of Gospel music and Afro-Soul, as she hopes her lyrics would be a love service to her fans. By singing in the Spirit and using her inspiration from real life be the driving force behind her relatable and praiseworthy lyrics, her fans are in for something surely incredible with this new album.

We are reminded of the truth that we are all winners with Christ on our side in Romans 8:31-37, which reads:

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

‘For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

This music will uplift your soul and embrace your godly identity found in Christ. We are proud of Aramide as she represents Christ, as well as the LoveWorld Nation and the Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.

Award Winning Gospel Collaborative Project – Wilsongs by Dr. Wilson Muwanguzi

Music is a powerful source that can play a huge part in your mood, which can affect your whole day. Music can either be used to energize or to relax. It is also used as self-expression, both in creating as well as in sharing. Our capabilities for making and listening to music are constantly advancing and becoming more and more a part of our everyday life, although it’s been a centralized point throughout history and culture since the beginning of time.

Knowing that music has such a strong effect on our mindset, we can always use it to refocus ourselves and our attention to God and His ways. When we listen to Spirit-filled music, our eyes return to the Lord and we become instantly strengthened, as we claim the promises of God, singing them over ourselves and our situations.

One ministry that has grasped the true power that Spirit-filled music has over our situations and mindset is the ministry of Wilsongs, founded by Dr. Wilson Muwanguzi. After experiencing the overwhelming benefits and blessings that gospel music brings, Dr. Wilson was ready to create this experience for believers all around the world. He recently sat down with Uganda Christian News to share about their ongoing project. With leaders of the industry all around the world, ‘all bound by a common goal of giving a voice for the generation that is passionate about God and addressing society needs’. Dr. Wilson’s dream to see a generation penetrated by the power of God-inspired music began to manifest.

This project reaches beyond all barriers of culture, style, denomination, and genre to satisfy and uplift all believers from every walk of life. Holy Spirit inspired lyrics not only encourage and uplift, but they lead us to be knowers of God’s Word, which produces teachers of God’s Word.

Wilsongs at Viga Music Awards by: Uganda Christian News

The Wilsongs group has received several awards over the course of their ministry work and most recently on May 31st at the Viga Music Awards ceremony in Kampala, in Uganda where they are based out of. Wilsongs group was the recipient of the Best Duo/Band/Group of the year, and Dr. Wilson received recognition for the Afri-Song Artist of the year 2019 award.

Dr. Wilson took the time to sit down with Uganda Christian News to share his thoughts on all the buzz:

“Winning at the Viga Music Awards 2019, has been a miracle of its kind: it came at a time when we had just released our new songs; “Yuza Eggulu”, ” Saawa Ya Kubotola”, “Waliwo Abisobola”, “Mulimu Ekipya” and “Praising You Jehovah (Tenda)” yet they had not yet received as much acclamation as expected, even though Wilsongs is generally loved within and across borders…. While winning awards is not the major aim, with this victory GOD has literally lifted us miles into the sky. We feel like stars shining high and bright. Surely; in such a time.”
