Stop charging churches for programmes – Gospel musician advises
In an age where many Ghanaian musicians make more money from gigs than record sales, a gospel singer still does not understand why gospel musicians should charge for their performance.
Not that Mrs. Leticia Acheampong Hars does not understand the prevailing issues; far from that.
She is just surprised why some gospel artistes could boycott shows including church events simply because their charges were not met.
This, she insists is simply not right because “singing the word of God is not business’.
‘I prefer a situation where the church or event organisers will bless me after my ministration, but not to charge them’ she told The Spectator Agoro on Monday.
Mrs Leticia Hars known in showbiz circle as QueenLet said most gospel artistes had taken it as a business but the primary objective of a minister was to win souls and propagate the word of God to the world.
QueenLet who doubles as a nurse, said gospel artistes needed to find other things to do that would fetch them money.
‘Money from our music should only come in as supplementary support not the main source of your income”.
Mrs Hars is currently promoting her two singles titled ‘Dear Holy Spirit and Anwawadwuma – marvellous God.
The German-based gospel artiste added that her two singles talked about the Holiness and the handi work of God.
She used this opportunity to thank the award winning gospel artiste, Esther Smith and Rev. Dr Mary Ghansah for supporting her ministry by endorsing her singles.
She urged up and coming artistes to also make spirit filled songs in order to win more souls for Christ.
“We need to understand the purpose of gospel music, we don’t just sing, problems must run away when we sing, signs and miracles must happen and souls must be won”, stressed .
