GOSPEL musician, Simbarashe “Simba Ray” Chinyanga, is celebrating the release of his new song titled God Will.
The song will be officially out tomorrow.
Simba Ray, who began his musical journey at the age of 17, has worked with different artists, including a lengthy period under the mentorship of Zimpraise.
“My new single is called God Will, it is a declaration of faith that whatever I am praying for, God will provide more than what I am asking for.
“It is an encouragement to whoever who will listen to it to put their trust in Jesus, who is the supplier of all their needs.
“I started off my professional musical journey at the age of 17, when I auditioned for the Zimpraise Choir, and I became the youngest member of the gospel outfit at the time.
“I served in the group as a choir member, executive committee member, and vocal director for the tenor section, and was also part of the touring team that would travel all over the world for various concerts and conferences.
“I then left the group in 2017 to pursue my vision,” he said.
Simba Ray has another album to his credit.
“I have a six-track album called Hossana and I have an official video for one of my songs from my previous album, a song named My God, my King.
“I also have videos of a live acoustic set recording I did for my album.”
He decided to start his project as a way to show his strengths.
“It was time for my voice and my expression of worship to be heard.
“To move away from the background and behind the scenes, which was my comfort zone for many years.
“I believe I have fresh sound which should be heard.”
He has extensive experience as a professional background vocalist and session musician.
“I have worked with several established artists in the music industry, including the likes of Pastor G, Thembalami, Sharon Manyika and Sabastian Magacha.
“I now stand on my own as a solo recording artist and worship leader.”
Simba has also collaborated with several artists on their musical projects.
“I featured on Pastor G’s latest album Hope Reloaded on a song entitled Tinokutendai and I am a long-time collaborator with the gospel outfit ‘Purple Pride Family.’
“I strongly feel that there is room for growth within the standards of gospel music in terms of vocal presentation.”
