GOSPEL SINGER ANGELA IFONLAJA’s DEBUT ALBUM “THE RISING” ENTERS THE UK OFFICIAL CHARTS TOP 20 LIST IN THE FIRST WEEK OF RELEASE.
Seasoned worship leader, songwriter and recording Artiste ANGELA IFONLAJA recently launched her first solo album “The Rising” at a sold out concert in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The album went straight into the Official Charts at no. 13 in the first week of release.
THE RISING conveys the message of God’s people uniting for the Kingdom of God, and the bold lyrics express a determination to stand for Jesus Christ in a dark world. Angela says “I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazingly talented people on this album; the album has 11 tracks on it that will bless, encourage, challenge and inspire..”
After 10 years, Angela Ifonlaja makes a return to the UK gospel music scene after being in popular gospel trio Eternal Excellence. Ministry took her to Northern Ireland in 2007 where, together with her husband, she leads a thriving multi-cultural congregation.
From 2016, Angela has been working on her solo album, which features Noel Robinson and MOBO Award winner, Faith Child as well as renowned Northern Ireland based worship leaders, Mark Ferguson and Ian Hannah. It also features Rony Padilla, Dublin based Tomilola Allen-Taylor and popular youth choir, NXGN. Angela says that the collaborations on the album reflect the 3 places dear to her: London where she grew up, Northern Ireland where she lives and her Nigerian roots. The album was produced by award winning producer, Goz-i-am and written by Angela Ifonlaja and supporting writers. The result is a treat for the ears and tonic for the soul.
