    Currently in the UK gospel industry, hails a young man by the name of Sonnie Badu. He is regarded as one of the most celebrated worship leaders to emerge from the African Church sector in recent years. He is heating up the international scene circuits with his energetic sound and colourful blend of contemporary and African praise and worship.

    With a style so diverse, he appeals to every preference.

    In 2009 alone, Sonnie Badu won five awards including BEST GOSPEL ACT UK, 2009 at the BLACK ENTERTAINMENT, FILM, FASHION, TELEVISION AND ARTS (BEFFTA) AWARDS AND EUROPE BEST GOSPEL ARTIST, 2009.

    Among the three wards he was nominated for he swept all three of them and is aiming high for the Dove Awards in the coming year. He is described as the young man with the golden voice; others esteem him for his ability to move audiences. However, these talents find their greatest expression because of His Love for God.

    Speaking to the 8 star award winner from his base in London, the world acclaimed internationally celebrated gospel artist, Sonnie Badu, gave thanks to God for how far he has brought him and shared his awards with the Black Stars.

    He congratulated the pride of African football; the Ghana Black Stars, for being the only African team in the 2010 FIFA World Cup that qualified for the quarter finals. He dedicated his new single, “ADONAI” to the Black Stars for their outstanding performance at the just ended World Cup.

    Sonnie Badu “ADONAI” features Nigeria’s sensational gospel artist, Divvey Kanjji of Infinity fame. The debut album scheduled for release this winter has been titled “COLOURS OF AFRICA”, and consists of versatile African contemporary music composed by ‘The Worshipper’ himself and some of Africa’s greatest gospel music geniuses.

    Show casing the beauty and heritage of Africa, it promises to be one of the best albums ever released by Sonnie Badu. In this mind blowing project, Sonnie Badu put together some of the most renowned musicians from West, East and South Africa off his global tour in music.

    Sonnie Badu last year trilled his Ghanaian gospel music addicts to what many described as the most successful gospel concert of the year – GHANA WORSHIPS WITH SONNIE BADU. The success of that concert had many calling for a second edition. Hopefully, organisers say plans are far advanced for that concert.

    With God all things are possible.
