African Gospel Choir Dublin and 2020
Happy New Year! 2021 has arrived and we thank God for keeping us all. None of us expected a pandemic to hit the world the way it did in 2020. But as a choir we have learnt that even during seasons of uncertainty, you can still glorify God and use your talent to bless others. It may not be through mediums that you are used to, but God always makes a way. We would like to share what we have accomplished as a choir in 2020 and we pray it blesses you. If you missed anything during 2020 or would like to have another listen, just click on the associated links!
Virtual videos became rampant throughout 2020 and we’ve adapted very well! Special thanks to our Music Director Adeniyi Allen Taylor for the work on editing, our Choir Director Tomilola Allen-Taylor and creative team for arranging songs. Find out what videos we put together.
1. Heal The World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3qbof5_99c
At the onset of the pandemic our hearts reached out to those who were hurting the most. This pandemic has affected those who live in the palace and those on the streets and everyone in between. We continue to pray for healing and as individuals let’s do the best we can to make the world a better place!
2. Rise Up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj7cEVtkWFk
A series of incidents of police brutality against black people and people of colour in the United States of America sparked a lot of protests and heightened racial tensions.We must Rise Up and speak up about injustice and support those who can no longer speak for themselves. Sing along with us as we Rise Up unafraid and will do so over and over again as needed.
3. Amazing Grace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRMzLPXNj1I
We all love this old beautiful hymn written by a slave trader who came to experience God’s grace and salvation. Let us never forget the Amazing Grace God has shown towards us through the death of Christ and how He translated us from the Kingdom of Darkness to the Kingdom of His Son!
4. Obanla Concert 2020! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byVF5HJBiLQ.
Despite the pandemic, God gave us the confidence to deliver this virtually in 2020. You can get a snippet of the concert on Obanla concert youtube channel. Stay tuned though. The concert songs will be available on Spotify soon!
5. Mary Did You Know https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQLkSV3maPU
Christmas is a time where we remember the birth of Christ. In this song we remember Mary and wonder if she really knew who her baby boy was and all He would accomplish on earth. Mary, did you know that your baby boy would save mankind from their sin?
So, dear AGC fans, supporters and well-wishers if you missed any of the above in 2020, now is the time to catch up. And of course, if you just want to re-listen and be blessed again please do so and share with your friends and family.
Happy New Year and God bless you!
