Singer releases single in response to crime wave
February 2, 2003
Psalmist Sean Sobers has added his voice to the fight against the escalating crime wave in Guyana with the release of single entitled 'Heal Our Land.'
Sobers, who has been singing for over 15 years explained that he was motivated to compose the tune after reading about the robbery in Ketley street which left three dead and several others wounded.
"At that point I knew that our land needed God and healing. This is not a tune to make money, but for our nation," Sobers said. "This nation has had a serious wound and needs healing."
The five-minute song which calls on God to lead Guyana out of the era of destruction, was produced by Pastor Timothy King for Dominion Music. Smith also teamed up with the singer to pen the lyrics.
Back-up vocals were provided by Shayla Harry and Shellon Martindale, while Obed James was the technical engineer. The music was arranged by Darell Pugsley.
Sobers, a Psalmist in the Love and Faith World Outreach Ministries who has performed at concerts in the USA and the Bahamas, presented one of the CDs to President Bharrat Jagdeo last week and will be distributing some to members of government, churches and the radio station. (Steve Ninvalle)
