About the song “Your Grace”:
Your Grace is a song inspired by the goodness of God.
It is a song that opens our understanding to “the Person of God” in Faithfulness.
It is a song of thanksgiving about how His Grace has made us who we are in Him here on earth.
For He gave us sleep to sleep
He gave us breath to wake
Our Legs are working all by His grace
Our eyes are working all by His grace
Our blood, cells, organs and tissues are working all by His grace.
– “Oshimiri Atata” by Preye Odede chronicles Gospel music minister’s journey perfectly
The ministry of Preye Odede will always remain distinct and cannot be replicated. You have some artiste that only come ones in a generation. The likes of Whitney Houston, Nath King Cole, Michael Jackson, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Sinach, Joepraize to name a few… and of course, there is Preye Odede!
Specially anointed for such a time as this, God’s out-poured life embodied in a humble vessel that contrasts the magnitude of gift and anointing that is contained therein, Preye Odede combines aesthetics with anointing and the results are life transforming songs that have left their indelible marks in the sands of this generation, spiraling into undeniable testimonies, ricocheting all over the world!
When Preye Odede put out his debut album “My Script” in 2012, “Ebezina” stood out and infiltrated the core of Gospel Music till date. Speaking with Cool FM OAP, Jibike in 2014, he said he wrote “Ebezina” in the “middle of serious hardship. At a point where we were thrown out of our house and rendered homeless… in 2009.”
“Bulie” was a follow up on the success of “Ebezina”. The video has garnered over 2 million views on Youtube – Preye’s channel alone. He featured a remix of the single in his 2017 sophomore album titled“Ready” and collaborated with UK based Ghanaian Gospel artiste, the critically acclaimed Sonnie Badu of“Baba” fame.
“I Am Real” shot by video director Patrick Elis in the USA presented Preye Odede in new light in terms of his brand. As the distinctive nature of his ministry attained zenith height, it couldn’t be business as usual… literally. Preye’s releases, presentations, PR strategies and overall outlook took a new turn as well!
He announced his sophomore album with the rapturous worship/supplication song with the title“Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry)”. The song which critics have said, rivals the effort of “Ebezina”, although there are similarities speckled all through both songs, received wide acceptance within and outside the country, so much that when the “Ready” album finally dropped, it’s still one of the songs that stood out. He recently ministered the single in COZA, Abuja at Voltage Warship with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and the atmosphere was electric! Pastor Fatoyinbo described the ministration as “an amazing time of worship!”
Taking a look at the transformation Preye Odede’s life and ministry has experienced – before and after the debut album “My Script”. The amazing grace that came to his rescue did not transform his life and left him at the point but he has gone from grace to grace ever since. One will agree that the only appropriate outburst is “Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry).”
Talking about the journey so far and the future expectations, Preye Odede said:
“I don’t look like my past because of God’s grace and mercy … At times when you are down and weary, draw strength from God, who is the fountain that never runs dry and with that river ever flowing, i am certain that God is set to supersede the present and do endless wonders in your life.”
The song “MY TESTIMONY” Is an expression of a man’s worship of God regardless of his situation. This is to bridge the misconception that today’s church holds unto, by attaching testimonies to material blessings only. God remains God whether we are lack or in abundance. Hence, we must live blessed at all times beyond what our eyes can see, hands can touch or minds can imagine. God’s blessings.
Gabriel Zakka hails from southern Kaduna state of Nigeria. Though has been into music since childhood, but became an active worship leader in the year 2009. His heart burns with so much passion for an unusual overflow of God’s power as he does not just raise his voice in worship but his life in it’s entirety. With a great conviction he holds unto the fact that music is what he has been called to do, so as to attract men to the cross and have them worship all their lives on Earth
Every Dry Bone is a Song birthed from the womb of the Spirit, It came to me spontenously during a time of intense worship at a service in Kingdom Lifeline Apostolic Ministry This song will bring revival to the Hearts of Men and the Nations of the earth and bring sons into the kingdom.
Just like Yahweh spoke to Ezekiel and ask him to speak life to the dry bones, wherever this song has been ministered there have been testimonies and indeed we have seen dry bones rise up. There have been countless testimonies of healing and deliverance and as you listen in the spirit may every thing that represent a dry bone in your life rise up again in Jesus Name. Amen

The riveting, new release entitled, Don’t Turn Around, is the latest EP from Minnesota-native, Atlanta-resident, Joy Mobley. The melodic, tapestry of anointed tunes is part of Joy’s plan to touch people through the power of her jubilant music.
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: 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!
