AN a capella gospel group - Heavenly Tunes - is appealing for a recording company and sponsorship that will help them pursue their dream in music.

The group’s manager Smangaliso Ngubo told Echo that currently the group is like children without a home. The Richmond gospel group has five male singers - Khanyisani Mkhize, Lindokuhle Sthomo, Ntandoyenkosi Zaca, Sphamandla Mbona and Thulani Shezi - who are still studying.

In October 2014 ar the group released their first album titled Bambelela.

“It is the love of music that pushed us to form a group last year. All of the five members are from the same church, the Seventh Day Adventist.

“What we are wishing for is to get someone to sponsor us. We want to belong under a recording company that will call us its own. Currently we have no home and we are like orphaned children. We are looking for a home, a place we can call home,” said Ngubo.

Some of the members don’t have parents and music is what they believe in.

“We have made appearances in the Free State, Durban and Johannesburg and in our home town, Richmond. We are striving for exposure. Most people are unaware that there is a male group that touches people’s souls using their voices. The good thing is that we compose our own songs. We don’t like singing songs that are known. That doesn’t make us original at all.

“We want to see the group being acknowledged and receiving awards. Richmond and KZN need to be on the map and that can be done. We love music and we will continue singing and raising the flag of gospel music,” said Ngubo.

Heavenly Tunes’ CD is available from the manager. For bookings, phone Ngubo on 078 833 0905 or 074 784 1028
