Fountain of Life Choir in action
It was an evening of angelic worship, spectacular praises and beautiful dance movements recently, as the music department of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC) held a concert to launch its debut album at the church’s auditorium in Ilupeju, Lagos State.
Titled, Open Door, the 10-track album is a mixture of worship and danceable songs, filled with strong messages of God’s unlimited love to humanity. Some of the tracks include, How Lovely is your presence by Damola Oguntoyinbo and Joyce Nwabueze, Oyin Momo by Deborah Ajayi, Only You by Seun Shaba, Jesus you are powerful and Jesu na nigi by Oluchi Uguru, Majesty by Ayotunde Adejumo, God alone and Revival rain by Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun, Ebubedike by Uche Edmund and Open door by four members of the group led by Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun.
The church’s Music Director, Mrs. Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun, said the album was born out of passion and desire to give their songs wider reach. “We have always loved music. The choir has always been great. Sometime last year, we decided to take it to another level – an international one, to make our songs be heard by more individuals, but that required a standard. Therefore, we took a bold step and decided to release an album. We got a couple of teams and individuals of the music department to write songs, which were driven by our last year’s team – ‘Open door’ and that really birthed the songs that we have in this album.”
Tolu, who is a pastor in the church and also the daughter of the senior pastor, Taiwo Odukoya, revealed that the church sponsored the project, because of the confidence reposed in members of the department.
“I am proud to say that every expenditure that went into producing this album was provided by our church. This shows the belief our pastors and benevolent members have in us, in our potentials and in our dreams,” she said.
The group thrilled spectators with boisterous praise medley, as they danced joyfully. There were equally performances from the four arms of the department: Fountain Worship team, the Grace Band – consisting of instrumentalists, the Grace Levites – the older choir and the GX choir – the youngest group.
