Choral groups urged to use music to transform the world

Mr Charles Akwaboah, the President of the Ramseyer Presbyterian Singing Band, in Kumasi has indicated that song ministration was a powerful tool for the propagation of the gospel.

He said good lyrics in songs could be edifying to a worried or wandering soul and draw closer to his maker.

Mr Akwaboah was speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency during the 95th anniversary celebration of the Adum Ramseyer Prebyterian Singing Band, on the theme, Let the Earth Hear: The Role of the Singing Band.

He noted that singing was part of evangelism and the Singing Band had led all these years in evangelising, for the expansion of God’s Kingdom on earth and called for support from the church.

Mr Akwaboah urged choral groups in the country to produce songs that could save, heal and transform lives for the good of the nation, and the world at large.

Let’s intensify our commitment to produce and sing good songs that will transform lives and glorify God, our maker, he stated, and urged Ghanaians to listen to good gospel music, which could lead them to heaven and eternity.

The Singing Band President paid glowing tribute to late Aseidu Akrofi and Owura Kwaku Darko for their pioneering roles in the formation and the growth of the Ramseyer Presby Singing Band and commended the current membership for successfully holding the mantle all these years.
