At the end of March Psalmist Chevelle Franklyn delivered a powerful performance, albeit virtually, at one of the most prolific megachurches in the United States, The Potter’s House (pastored by world-renowned Christian leader Bishop TD Jakes, Snr.).
No stranger to the global stage, this is the first time a Caribbean act has ministered on a platform of this scale to such a diverse online audience. It has been reported that the church has approximately 30,000 members; and following the Covid-19 global pandemic, millions more now viewing online.
Recently, in speaking of Franklyn, Bishop Jakes said the following: “Clearly, there is a special anointing on this woman! Her vocal ability is a weapon against the enemy! The world, especially at this time, must sing aloud ‘Go In Your Strength.”
Be on the lookout for Chevelle Franklyn‘s upcoming project, “South Wind Vol 1,” which has been rescheduled for release later this year.
In mid March, African gospel artist Ada Ehi released an enchanting single titled “Everything” via the Freenation Inc. imprint. She is now following up the audio release with the official music video, which was uploaded to her YouTube channel earlier this week.
At the end of March, Island Worship Productions, the imprint owned by veteran gospel singer Jermaine Edwards, released a new single titled “Serious Time.” The gospel track is performed by Orville Ovi Sutherland with additional vocals by Edwards.
As the name implies, “Serious Time” serves as a reminder of the times we are living in. It talks about how un-Godly we have become as we’ve put our faith in things and people as oppose to in The Most High.
