…As Faith Chapel Assemblies Of God Rejoice
By Alfred K Dogbey
Young and talented gospel musician, Linda Yankah, has launched yet another powerful album titled, “I Love You Lord” at the Faith Chapel Assemblies of God, McCarthy Hill, where she worship.
The latest album, which is her second since she emerged onto the gospel scene at a very tender age, is to give praise to God for His goodness and mercies.
Affectionately called “Rising Queen of Gospel Music” or “Lady Lee”, Linda told The Herald in an exclusive interview that she came into the gospel ministry “to win souls, but not to make money”.
Her new album has nine tracks and is available on both audio and video CDs with great tracks like “I Love You Lord, Me Nim Nyame, Nyame Mu Nyame, Obi Nti Se Wo, Me Ye Nkunimdifo, Ahene Mu Hene, Nyame Ye, Lord of My Life” and other exciting tracks.
Linda Yankah, who is currently being managed by, Mr. Alexander Nartey, her Executive Producer and heavily supported by the Senior Pastor of Faith Chapel, Rev. Ben New-Life Zotoo and his wife, as well as the entire Faith Chapel Assemblies of God Congregation.
The 28years-old rising star said, “Linda is a result oriented lady who is strong-minded and working hard to bring out the best put in her by her Maker”.
The inspirational singer, who is currently a level 200 student at the Pentecost University College in Accra, started her education at a remote village in the Adansi-Praeso District of the Ashanti Region and later moved to Ho in the Volta Region, where she completed her Senior High School (SHS) at the St Prospers College.
Linda, who launched her debut album in 2008, is also an entrepreneur who is deeply involved in businesses apart from music and education.
She disclosed to The Herald that she has been singing since infancy and she was a member of singing groups like Shama Praise, Gospel and a chorister in her church, performing at various events, including funerals.
To her, doing gospel is a call from God and a duty to encourage people, especially those who are downhearted.
The rising star, advised the youth to wait and at God’s given time, each and everyone’s request would be fulfilled accordingly.
Linda Yankah said she was particularly grateful to Rev. Zotoo and his wife and her executive producer, whom she described as her parents for their massive support in lifting her up.
She promised that she would not do anything untoward in the name of gaining popularity, rather her audience and the public should expect the best in her, adding “using the gospel music to preach has become my passion”.
