    Joy Keys chats with Award winning South African Singer Lira

    in Music

    Songstress LIRA, whose music career spans 13 years and includes 6 Studio albums, 3 live DVD’s, an autobiography and a movie; has established herself as the foremost female artist in South Africa and a formidable presence on the global music scene.

    When asked to elaborate on the significance of the title; “I grew up in a world where I faced so many limitations. I realised defining freedom for myself and subsequently living it was what I needed to do. In exploring this, the concept of “Born Free” became clearer. I want people to realise how powerful they are and that they can own their freedom. This album has become more than a body of musical work, it seeks to inspire and create change – physically and most importantly, mentally “says LIRA.

    Born Free masterfully blends a new sound with the smooth urban direction synonymous with the LIRA brand. “This is my best record yet, adds LIRA, and listeners should expect to hear the definitive growth and boldness which that brings.”

    Born Free marks a new direction for LIRA and promises to set an exciting tone for great things to come. www.misslira.com

    In the Book of Exodus Chapter fifteen we will look at the trials and murmuring in the wilderness.  When bread of heaven did not meet the taste of God's people.   Why did Isreal murmur How did Moses remove the cause of their murmuring.  What happened  when they gathered in more food than God required of them.  We will look at the manna in the New Testament. and the sin of murmuring.  Be sure to listen and learn.  In all things give thanks for this is the will of God concerning each and every one of us.  Praise reduces murmur.  Come and let us praise God together.  Thank you for listening to the Voice of Joy, Pastor Yolanda.
