Dear choir members, kindly read this message and be inspired. No doubt, you will learn one or two things here about how to humble yourself. Humility makes us real.
If you are humble, nothing will touch you because you know what you are. If you know things and you are not too pompous about it, you are making room for progress; this is actually true. There is beauty in simplicity
This is about the popular music producer and engineer and singer, Frank Edward. It was actually a birthday message he posted about Osinachi Kalu popularly called Sinach, the award-winning Nigerian Gospel singer who has gained national recognition and has written more than 200 songs. It will inspire you greatly…
“@frankrichboy — A MUST READ for anyone who desires to be great !! @therealsinach is a not a house hold name, she is a world class name the results are right before you! But the question is how did she get above the sky? Here goes my SINACH experience. I met SINACH 14 years ago when I joined the ministry as a young piano player. She became a big sister and a friend because we were always together making music as she writes one new song everyday. I kid you not, so automatically I found myself rehearsing everyday. Working with her was not easy because she was musically ahead of me and I was finding it difficult to catch up. Sometimes in the middle of a rehearsal she would say “Frank I want the strings to go high at this point” then I would tell her that doesn’t sound nice just because I couldn’t do it but she would insist, then I had no choice but to learn it and do it. Sometimes, I would be like, it sounds beautiful — There is no studio in this Lagos that @therealsinach and I didn’t visit just to make music, so from following her to studios I began to learn music production just by watching all the engineers we worked with. After every session, she would sleep inside the vocal booth and me under the mixing console then the next morning her car would refuse to start….Well, here is the good news, after I have gathered some production skills from all the various studios we visited, she decided to set up a mini-studio in her house and I resumed work there as well. I just wanted to make music, I just wanted to serve. So to cut the long story short, today you know FRANK EDWARDS the producer, the engineer, the singer etc! It’s because of this woman, she pushed me sooo hard and I humbly followed! @therealsinach before the whole world I want to say I love you, thank you for unlocking the greatness in me. HAPPY Birthday Queen!“
LESSON: Don’t look for where to show off, look for where to serve! It will amaze you how much you don’t know!
