FORMER President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Diana Hopeson, has called on Gospel musicians to unite to fulfil the common mission they have been called for.
Speaking at the maiden meeting of the Christian Music Association, Ghana, which came off at the Hephzibah Christian Centre, Aburi in the Eastern Region recently, Mrs Hopeson, who is also a Gospel musician, said Christianity is about unity and they who propagate the Gospel must practice that.
“When Christ came, he died for us all and that shows that he did not discriminate, so let unity lead in everything we do. Together we will rise, together we will fall.
"It is only in unity that we will look out for each other and be a shoulder to cry on in hard times. Unity is all we need to build the world and life we want,” she said.
Continuing, the Onyame Ye Odomfo singer said “It is about time we know the man we serve, the one whose work we have been called to pursue and give him the respect he deserves.
'Let people see us and be willing to come serve with us, let our works, our actions match what we preach.
“As People of God, we are the light of the world. When people are blind, we should show them the way using our light. The same way we are the salt of the world, when things turn sour, people should turn to us.”
The Association’s meeting, which was on the theme “Keeping the unity of the spirit" saw Gospel musicians from all 10 regions of the country attending and deliberating on matters affecting them.
Gospel singer, Eugene Zuta emerged the President of the association with Abena Ruthy assisting as Vice President. In his acceptance speech, Eugene Zuta said the new executives will build structures and work hard for the Association to gain roots in the country.
The Association’s Board of Trustees include Mrs. Diana Hopeson, Rev Nii Okai, Mr. Worlanyo Afenyo, Mrs. Ruth Benny Wood, Mr. Franklin Eleblu and Ps. Jasher Taylor.
