Exclusive Interview w/ Joy Mobley by Christopher Heron

Joy has always captured crowds with her incredible instrument, highlighted by her victory in the Minnesota Idol. Since then, Mobley has taken her talent to another level, veering towards ministry and making a difference for Jesus. BlackGospel.com spoke with this striking woman about music, family, and faith.

 

Christopher Heron: Joy, I’d love to begin our conversation by discovering the lovely lady behind the music. For instance, we know you’re a talented vocalist…but what’s your secret gift or hidden talent very few people know you possess?

 

Joy Mobley: I’d like to think God has blessed me with the gifts for “insight” and “connectivity”.  I believe I possess an intuitive attribute that enhances my ability to destroy communication barriers regardless of the personality.

 

I thank God for enabling me to befriend those that would just assume turn their backs, and from that breakthrough, develop a nourishing and lasting acquaintance.   In a song, I experience a pristine freedom that transcends woes and sorrows of this world.

 

Christopher Heron: You’re proud alumni of Clark Atlanta University. What are the most important values and lessons in life you attribute to your time at college?

Joy Mobley: “I’ll find a way or make one” is one of the mottos for CAU. And I can definitely say that having persistence and not giving up has been key in my success and who I’ve become today. Another lesson that I can attribute to my time there is to make the most of every opportunity given to you.

While I was attending CAU I was exposed to a lot of great opportunities and because of this, I seized everyone that I could! Looking back now I know that many people might not experience in a lifetime what I was able to, at that time.

 

Christopher Heron: You’re also a proud wife and mother. How have these important family roles changed your life and shaped your view of the world?

 

Joy Mobley: If ever the word “unselfish” has been transparent, surely it’s at this time in my life of being a wife and mother.  There’s an old saying in the gospel that says “it’s not all about me” and that old saying is so true.  The reality of it all, to understand this phrase is to gain wisdom beyond the imagination.  I believe a person that is self-centered cannot truly discover their full potential nor true happiness.

 

It is imperative for the soul, mind, and spirit to nurture the body and it is equally important that our individual accountability reaches beyond our person. If I may, I must regress to the words “insight” and “connectivity”.  My having insight towards my husband and child has done so much for the priceless connectivity the three of us enjoy and share in our lives.

 

Christopher Heron: Music has always been an essential part of your identity…but when did your passion for music move to the next level and becomes a tool for ministry and an expression of faith?

 

Joy Mobley - 2018
Joy Mobley

Joy Mobley: During my adolescence, my parents pastored a church and I was afforded the opportunity to express myself in song and in church productions.  I suppose my mom became so confident in my ability to sing, many times there were impromptu performances.  The congregation or those in attendance would often compliment me by making such comments as “you sang that song so well you made me cry or you brought chills all over me.”

 

My Mom enlightened me at an early age as to who was responsible for the anointing I was under, and that I was blessed to be chosen by God to communicate His Word in song.  Even into adulthood, what I get from unbelievers regarding my new music is “I don’t usually listen to Gospel music, but I like your music.”

 

I’ve heard this countless times and knowing that the lyrics in my songs talk about Jesus, and people who are not in the church are still able to receive that message is what ministry is all about, saving souls and making disciples, Mark 16:15 says “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone”.

 

Christopher Heron: Your new EP is entitled, Don’t Turn Around. What’s the inspiration behind the title of your new release?

 

Joy Mobley: I know it’s an old cliché, but we are really living in troubled and disturbing times.  It seems that every time one listens to the news, it’s disheartening.  Hardly ever anything encouraging.  We are always bombarded by negativity whether at work, home, and even church.  My philosophy…this world needs encouragement!

 

Without encouragement to stay the course, people will turn around and escalate their demise into a world of destruction.  People today need the “truth” in their hearts, love in their spirits and confidence in their soul.  So in my lyrics, this is what I’m attempting to convey.  Stay the course, God’s People; and Don’t Turn Around!

 

 

Christopher Heron: The release of your EP is another kind of birth. It’s very intimate and reflective of you. How much is “Joy” it for you? And what is your hope and prayer for this album?

 

Joy Mobley: The “joy” for me is overwhelming because I’m doing something that I love.  My hope and prayer is that I’m able to touch the broken hearts and disturb minds of the many that are about to or perhaps already have “Turned Around”.  I would be so honored to know that my songs that are reaching the masses, relationships were mended, hearts were fixed, and lives were turned around all because of the Power of God!

MusicVid / Lyrics: Isabella | Omnipotent God [@IsabellaMelodie]

Omnipotent God is a simple declaration of God’s sovereignty and omnipotence in all situations through the generations. The song was received during Isabella’s study of the book of Daniel chapter 2 when Daniel was praising God for revealing the king’s dream to him, hence why Isabella refers to Omnipotent God as “Daniel’s Song of Worship”

Omnipotent God is the 2nd track off Isabella’s recently released “Indescribable” album produced by Wilson Joel of Doxology Music. The video was directed by Uvi Orogun of Mediamind Universal.

Nathaniel Bassey Endorses ‘Jehovah Ebenezer’ By Onos Ariyo

Popular Gospel Artiste Nathaniel Bassey endorses the hit single Jehovah Ebenezer by Onos Ariyo. He made an inspiring post on the spirit filled song Onos, stressing on the meaning of Ebenezer, which is The Stone Of Help.

Here is the post below:

JEHOVAH EBENEZER.Between 3-4 am this morning this song was implanted in my spirit. I woke up, played it till we woke up. I believe it came as a song of deliverance and assurance. EBENEZER – THE STONE OF HELP.. 1 Samuel 7:12.
Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us. May The Ebenezer, Our Stone of Help, be your stay and stronghold in Jesus’ name.
