    Photo: Ghana Music.comFor over sixteen years now, Jennifer Chonia has been a major force in the gospel and music communities in Ghana, Switzerland, Italy and more foreign countries.

    Jennifer’s astonishing and soul inspiring voice has captured a worldwide audience, creating a following that transcends genres and denominations.

    “I’ve realized the words most admirers say to me on phone and in public,” admits Jennifer on how her  songs has touched people.

    In addition to numerous television and radio appearances she had during her promotion period in Ghana, Jennifer has participated in a few events.

    The road to Jennifer’s current musical mainstream status has not been an easy road but she knows the good lord is her light as she makes her journey to spread her word through her music.

    Jennifer is currently preparing to release her next album and on that project, she has enlisted the help of some familiar gospel musicians like Lady Prempeh and Nii Okai.

    “Some of my favorite tunes like “Yeyiwo Aye” and “Ayikoo”, has been burning its way to the charts in Ghana”.

    Jennifer’s gospel fans have continued to grow, as she has given birth to a new album, “Might Power”. Jennifer spent some time with Ghana Music.com to discuss it all.

    Ghana Music.com: How successful has the album been so far?
    Jennifer: Very splendid, so far so good.

    Ghana Music.com: In retrospect, could you see yourself doing something else aside from being a musician?
    Jennifer: Honestly I see myself as God’s servant preaching out the gospel to mankind and inspiring people.

    Ghana Music.com: What makes Jennifer’s album unique?
    Jennifer: The powerful voice I posses, style of music and the quality sound formation.

    Ghana Music.com: Who are your mentors?
    Jennifer: Cece Winans, Yolanda Adams, and Vicky Yohe.

    Ghana Music.com: I read that you have travelled round the world to minister through your music. Tell us about your best experience?
    Jennifer: My best experience was in Italy where my ministration touched so many lives.

    Ghana Music.com: Are you currently working on any other projects outside your album?
    Jennifer: Basically am planning to organize an N.G.O. for women and children affairs, with the aim of catering for the needy ones in our society.

    Ghana Music.com: Do you have a philosophy you live by and would you like to share it?
    Jennifer: Be determined to face test of life, with an open mind and faith, it always counts in our Christian life. Because the Bible says for without faith it is impossible to please God. Persistence and determination, you will be the winner.

    Ghana Music.com: Do you realize how important your music is to people?
    Jennifer: Yes I realize it by the response from most admirers.

    Ghana Music.com: You’ve worked with many artists but is there an artist that you would like to work with that you haven’t yet?
    Jennifer: Nii Okai and Lady Prempeh.

    Ghana Music.com: How long have you been involved in the music ministry?
    Jennifer: Almost 16 years.

    Ghana Music.com: Are you the sole writer of your songs? How do you get inspired to write your lyrics?
    Jennifer: Not all because I am a giver. I always like to give someone else an exposure. You see God is looking for true worshipers who will worship him in spirit and truth, therefore there are people who can write powerful anointed songs but they cannot sing, so as a minister or an artist you have to make sure you don’t become selfish to allow those voices to be heard too.

    Ghana Music.com: What is your targeted audience?
    Jennifer: Most importantly the youth, mothers and fathers.

    Ghana Music.com: Is there a specific song on your current album that adequately translates the message and passion of your album?
    Jennifer: “Ye Yi Woaye” and “Closer To Thee”.

    Ghana Music.com: Your final message to your Ghanaian, Switzerland and worldwide fans?
    Jennifer: They should watch out for more powerful inspirational songs coming out soon.
