Likoma-based youth Choir, Junior Christ Ambassadors (popularly known as Junior CAs), on Saturday launched their long awaited ‘Usachedwe‘ CD album, five years down the line after it was released.
The Choir’s Assistant, Director Lyson Mphande, said in an interview that the choir finally decided to launch the CD with Usachedwe as its title track.
“We have decided to launch the CD to continue preaching the word of God through music so that it reaches far and wide,” he said.
Mphande said most of the songs revolve around encouraging people to get prepared for heavenly kingdom.
“For example in Usachedwe we are trying to advise someone who is preocupied with worldly pleasures to quickly make up his mind and follow Christ. The 10- track CD has other songs such as Ulale, Iwe Tiye, Solomo, Ndidzaimba, imfa ichititsa mantha among others.”
Mphande said resources permitting, they intend to come up with a DVD soon. ” We are therefore appealing to well wishers to us assist our choir in cash or kind so that we should achieve our goal,” he said.
Reverand Mapopa Chisi thanked the choir for taking strides to preach the word of God through music. He appealed to parents to always send their children to serve the Lord so that the country has generations that fear the Lord.
All songs were recorded at Great D Records and have already started enjoying airplay.
Some of the supporting artists during the launch were St Peters Mothers Union, Living Waters Women’s choir and Daughters of the King among others.
