Zimbabwean Gospel musician, Angie, based in the United Kingdom is thrilled to have the honour of being a supporting act at Rebecca Malope's upcoming UK concert in May 2016. Previously, Angie has backed South African superstar, Zahara, during her UK tour.

The singer released an 11 track album titled, Uyisiphephelo (He is my shelter or shield) last year in November and is currently working on her second album.

The Uyisiphephelo album is currently for sale on at an amazing price of just under $1. It can also be purchased on CD or digital download at CDbaby, Amazon, iTunes.

In an interview with Bulawayo24, Angie said: "I am working on my second album, but will be releasing an EP end of this month if God permits."

She said 'Uyisiphephelo' was well received by fans. It has one Shona track, two English and eight Ndebele/Zulu tracks and she said, "Most of the songs were composed by myself apart from Ezulwini, which is my favourite chorus."

Angie said in her group, she has five instrumentalist and eight backing vocals. "However, in the United Kingdom it's not easy to have a permanent band, but Uyisiphephelo will really thrill you."

Her new EP, Thethelela, will have four tracks but she is not at liberty to disclose them at the moment.

"It has a remix of sothembela and I have one song with 5 languages which includes Venda, Tsonga/Shangani, Sotho/Tswana, Zulu/Ndebele and Shona it's an encouraging song for people to repent and telling people how beautiful heaven is," she told Bulawayo24.

When asked about the likelihood of performing in Zimbabwe she said, "Possibilities of performing in Zimbabwe are likely to materialise next year. I have to plan when I want to travel and travelling with kids is a bit of a challenge.

"I am praying for God to make this journey easy as he said nothing is impossible with him. And we can do anything through Christ who strengthen us."

Angie's religious background is undoubted. In her profile Angie states that she was inspired to sing from a very young age and was raised in a deeply religious family with very strong Christian beliefs. The singer enjoys her work and finds great joy and excitement in composing, singing and performing and most of all working for God.

Angie attributes everything she has achieved to God. Her love for God is revealed clearly in all her songs. She intends to continue to be used by God to do God's work.

"My goal is to create music that brings hope to people. My hope is to be used by the almighty to bring people to Christ," reads her profile.

"I wish to acquire many skills and to be able to touch many people's lives through Gospel music. As a mother I would like for my kids to follow the same path. I thank God for bringing me up as a Christian, which has shaped my values."

Angie's second album, Thethelela, is due to be released soon.
