Sonnie Badu To Release “Soundz Of Africa”

By Esther Doe

International gospel act, Minister Sonnie Badu is all set to release his fifth album come August 23rd, this year.

The album dubbed “Soundz of Africa” was recorded live in Maryland on November 1, 2014 at the New Psalmist Baptist Church. The album was recorded as classical hymns under the theme “African Gospel in Classical Hymns and Songs”.

The album “Soundz of Africa” features American starts Jonathan Nelson and Darwin Hobbs and wife of Minister Sonnie Badu, Annie Badu.

The album was recorded by award winning recording engineer Danny Duncan, the recording engineer behind Israel Houghton, Cece Winnans and Marvin Sapp. Armando is the sound engineer behind the album.

“Soundz of Africa” has songs like ‘Still You Reign, Free, Amazing God, Wone Alpha ni Omega, some new hymns and medleys, and Angels Cry (Sonnie’s gift of worship to Jesus) and a French rendition of his “Baba” song.

In an interview with Sonnie Badu, he noted that the album has kept long in being released because there was a lot to add that was not added on the concert day.

“It has been an awesome journey. The album has to do with my experience and everything I have learnt. I am very proud of myself and I am happy that we have been able to achieve this, he reiterated”.

Ahead of the release of “Soundz of Africa”, Minister Sonnie Badu released Imani and Amazing God earlier this year.

The album release will be on platforms like ITunes, Amazon, CD Baby and Google Play.
