Gospel artiste, Sister Emily renders thanks in new single.
Diaspora-based Cameroonian gospel artiste, Emilia Begang has in a new piece titled ‘Done for Me’ expressed her appreciation to God for the life changing impact on her over the years.
Emilia who uses stage name, Sister Emily had her latest work produced by one of Cameroon’s most renowned and award-winning music producers, Philbill.
Still relatively new to the craft, she has been able to impact many with her works in and out of the studio.
Despite being new to music as a career, Emily has lived it as a lifestyle, joining her church choir back in Cameroon since 2002. There, she learnt to read music notes and at some point, even featured in a gospel album.
After about 20 years in the choir, she finally got the call to expand her ministration through music, a call she attributes to a prophetic encounter in the Glory House Revival ministries - Norway in February 2019. Armed with the belief that God equips his own whenever he calls them, Emily set out, composing her songs.
Three years down the line, she has over 30 written songs to her credit, and has also learned to play the piano, facilitating her ministry.
“That same year 2019 after the prophecy was given, the grace and the call of God upon Emily was evident and she released her first single "Unchangeable Jehovah" in December,” her press team notes.
Emily, it adds, “released her first gospel album titled ‘Done for me’ containing 8 songs on the 28th November 2021.”
Prior to leaving Cameroon, Emily was a member of the St Peter and Paul Catholic youth movement (SAPCYM), at the Simbock Anglophone Church in Yaoundé where she worshipped.
Emily makes up a crop of Cameroon’s new breed gospel artistes challenging the odds and making a name for themselves across the globe, spreading the word of God. The rejuvenation can be traced to a few years back when songs of singer, Elizabeth Tekeh began trending again thanks to social media.
This was followed by her releasing a new music album.
The move shone the light on multiple other Cameroonian gospel talents that had been putting in the work and keeping their audience entertained. Today, their works are being hailed not just in nthe country, but well across the African continent and beyond.
