Budding gospel musician, Portia Agyemang has urged lovers of gospel music to watch out for her songs which will officially be on the market this year.

The songwriter, who has been singing in church since her childhood says all is set for the release of her first album, ‘Aseda’ within the first half of 2019.

The album has nine songs including ‘W’amma me anwu’, ‘M’ehye wo anounyam’, ‘Yesu di me kan’ and ‘Me werenfi w’aseda no’.

The video for ‘W’amma me anwu’ was shot and released on YouTube last year.

To prepare for the album launch, Portia has been making appearances at various TV and radio stations’ live worship shows.

Sharing her life story, she said that she began singing in a children’s band in her hometown when she was young but ended up ignoring music.

However, music found her again when she joined the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Ramseyer Congregation, Taifa a few years ago.

“I stopped singing for some time but when it dawned on me that God gave me the talent for a purpose I realized I need to use it for His glory as I can only do so whilst I’m alive,” Portia noted.

She is a lead vocalist of the church’s youth singing group, Fragrance of Life, and says fame will not pull her out of the group.

Portia who currently runs a boutique at Dome disclosed that she doesn’t have a producer yet but believes God will still take her places with or without one.

She’s asking all gospel music lovers to pray for her so she can grow in the ministry and churn out more soul lifting songs as the years go by.
