Gospel recording artist Nadine Valentine will release her debut reggae-gospel EP – Joyful Praise – on April 14, 2023. This is a four-track record that features a mix of new and previously released songs.
Listeners can expect to be taken on a nostalgic journey that’s guaranteed to get them singing and dancing. And although this is Nadine’s first gospel-reggae EP, she has released several Caribbean-style medleys and reggae hits in the past.
She explains the inspiration behind the project as follows: “I am inspired to create music that points to the joy of the Lord. Oftentimes persons outside of Christ perceive believers as individuals who do not radiate the joy of the Lord. My reggae gospel EP, Joyful Praise, wants to shift that mindset. We can serve the Kingdom of God with joy. It is not all about rules, regulations, and rituals.
As Nehemiah 8:10 reminds us, ‘the joy of the Lord is my strength’. My desire is to remind believers everywhere that God wants us to worship Him with the fruit of our lips, hands, feet, and body. Like David, we can sing and dance before our Creator unashamed. I have dedicated my life to making a joyful noise to the Lord.”
