Meet the Beloved

Like many others there, I am a lover of gospel music. When I  am feeling down or just need to lift my spirit gospel is where Ii turn to. When I met this awesome trio, their music touched my soul.

How was the group founded?
 The group was formed through a vision that came to us through performances we do at church . And we decided that we should make it an official group instead of just singing for the sake of doing special songs at church but carry out the message to the whole world.

Gospel is sung by many in South Africa, what Makes your music unique?
Our music brings families together, it speaks of the goodness of the Lord, it gives you a language and motivates you to speak right and confess good upon your life. This is a life changing Music and the message is clear
