Potter’s Hand Church Worship Team on Sunday launched their premier album titled ‘Ishimwe ni Iryawe,’ in a concert that brought together renowned gospel singers and supporters from all corners of Kigali.
Asiimwe Innocent Mudenge, one of the the group lead singers told Taarifa that launching the album of praise songs in Kinyarwanda and one video was not an easy work, they are “thankful to God that it happened the way they had planned it.”
“We started in 2015, it took us a very long time, a year and half working on music and preparing CDs and six months preparing for the album launch.” Asiimwe said.
He added that since they released their first CD in April this year, the group has received encouraging feedback from those who listened to their collection of songs because of the encouraging message therein.
“Some of those who bought our CDs have called to tell us that they have liked our songs. Sometimes an event may take place and come to an end but most importantly is that people have been touched and those who bought our CDs will be listening to them.”
Pastor Jimmy Muyango of the Potter’s Hand Church said that he hopes that the songs will change people’s lives through the message and even if they cost millions of francs the outcome is more valuable than money.
“I cannot compare the money that we invested in this action and what comes out of it because money is counted but what comes out this action cannot be counted. Money runs out but different generations will be listening to these songs for a very long time.” Muyango said.
The worship group was joined by other famous gospel singers including Israel Mbonyi, Luc Buntu and Serge Iyamuremye who also filled the church amid ululations and singing along from the congregants as they performed.
Founded in 2012, the worship team is made up of forty members including worship leaders and musicians who “believed in the power of writing and recording songs that lift up the name of Jesus and reflect what God is doing in and through the people of Potter’s Hand Church.”
However, the concert began thirty minutes from the 5 Pm, as advertised, which was visibly because of making final setting up of equipment at the eleventh hour.
