Celebration Choir launches album

The 12-track album was launched at a colourful ceremony at Celebration Centre in the capital on Wednesday.

While maintaining the choir’s unique sound which has seen them getting rave reviews in Africa and internationally, the album offers a different approach to contemporary gospel music.
It, however, still carries with it a simplicity that reaches out to all types of people.

One of the major strengths of the album is the mixture of different languages, namely Shona, Ndebele, Swahili and English.

The title track Yahweh, oddly coming as the 12th song on the album, appears to have been misplaced when it should have been the first track on the album. The track  comes with a beautiful video.

The album also maintains the Celebration Choir’s flair for dance songs with a number of danceable tracks. Street lingo is also deployed along with the rehashing of popular choruses especially on the song Fire Fire.

Speaking at the launch, Pastor Tom Deuschle applauded his wife and the choir for their collaboration.

“I would like to commend the team for working within a stringent budget and coming up with this great quality,” he said.

Some of the tracks on the album are Let’s Go, Thy Kingdom Come, This is, Bless The Lord, I will say of the Lord and Rudo rwaMwari.

The album launch was coupled with the unveiling of the group Celebrate Young fronted by the Deuschles’ oldest son Tommy and his younger brother Daniel.

The youthful band also released their album Found Love, a seven-track album that is dominated by dance songs.

Found Love is a fusion of various genres of music like rock, rave and rhumba just to mention a few. Most of the tracks are set to appeal to the youths such as tracks like Mbichana Mvura and Washaya Nyaya.
