FUSING gospel music with rock takes guts, and this is what new kid on the block Zoleka Ngcobo did when she wrote her CD - Izwi Lak

ho - which will be released next month.

The 28-year-old from Copesville said her love for daring to be different prompted her to combine rock, jazz and traditional gospel for her upcoming album which she produced at Raruka Studios.

Growing up in a Christian family, Ngcobo said when she decided to follow her music talent one day, she would venture into gospel music. She said the eight-track album aims to counsel and encourage those who have lost hope. “Through the album, I want people to be uplifted spiritually and I also want to encourage them to continue believing in God. I believe that as long as we are still breathing, we must push harder in order to achieve God’s purpose.

“As humans there are many challenges we come across and often we find ourselves losing that little bit of faith we have. This album is about restoring faith and reminding people that whatever they do, God is around.” Her favourite song is track three titled Thula Wena (Be still) which she wrote in collaboration with her husband Bheki.

“It’s a praise and worship song which connects one with our creator. It moves you from wherever you are.”
