    Topically Yours - Nigerian gospel singer Adaora

    in Entertainment

    Host Deardra Shuler interviews Nigerian gospel singer, songwriter and performer Adaora.  Based in Michigan, USA but originally from Nigeria, Adaora likes to describe her style of music as truly inspirational and diverse, resonating across various culture and ethnicity, particularly African. She believes that the fundamental reason for her existence is to praise and worship God. This conviction and the testimony of life experiences are translated into the songs that she writes.
    Adaora started her music career at the age of seven in Nigeria as a chorister. She later joined a popular group (in Enugu, Nigeria) known as “The Psalmist,” in the late 90’s before relocating to the USA.  
    She recently completed her debut album titled “For His Worship,” a lifelong dream that was engendered as an invitation for true worshippers to engage in a spectacular encounter of God’s presence. With this album, Adaora wanted to present an experience of gospel music that reflects her individuality as well as her African roots. Songs on this album include “Papa”, “Lift him up”, “Bia o Bia o”, “Praise Till the Morning” and “Pillar that Holds My Life”. Currently, she is the music director at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Mountain of the Lord Parish, Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA.  
    Adaora is happily married and blessed with two beautiful daughters.
