AN Ashdown gospel singer has one of his wishes ticked as he will soon be releasing a gospel album.

Thirty-year-old Lindelani Mkhize’s musical talent started attracting attention at a tender age when he performed in gospel music competitions and being a member of Sweet Sounds of Joy was an additional accolade for him.

Mkhize came first in a gospel music competition in Elandskop last year and was promised a one-year recording deal for his effort.

His CD has been brewing for some time and is now ready to hit music stores.

Mkhize referred to as his CD as his dream and says those who listen to it will be blown away

“The title of the album is Izibongelo Zewundlu, which has 10 tracks. I have always been a person who had a connection to music from ayoung age. My visibility in the church and school choir and gospel groups had an impact on my name. I am a person who was always positive about my dream and I knew that one day I would have my music recorded. Recording an album was my first priority on my wish list. I am grateful to the Almighty for giving me the opportunity I have been waiting for.”

Well Done is Mkhize’s song that is close to his heart.

“I was so emotional when I wrote that song and it explains why I relate to the song the way I do. Apart from that track, the CD is very different. When listening to it one would think that there are different artists singing. In every song I played with my voice. Thank you to my backing vocalists Thando Mtshali and Sindi Zuma,” said Mkhize
