Youths speak through music

846

©️ AN interdenominational group of teenagers under the name The Jesus Project is on a mission to have the youth’s voice heard through songs on various societal subjects.

With songs from their debut album; Apo pa Calvary, Ipapo and Thicker than Blood currently competing on local radio music gospel charts, the group said they aim to amplify the voice of the youth on issues that affect them.

“Our music catalogue comprises not only gospel music but inspirational songs that encourage other children and teens to speak out against child abuse and also encourage other children to focus on their studies and strive for a better tomorrow,” the group’s manager Brent Kudakwashe said.

Kudakwashe, who has worked on youth musical groups’ development including Zimpraise Kids, believes the group has potential to rise and produce music stars and that they will work hard to ensure that their music is heard.

The Jesus Project is working on their second album titled At the feet of the Master and so far two songs have been released in advance.

“People believe it is the role of adults to preach through music but we are changing that and show that young people can bridge that gap; produce music on an equally professional level and compete with any other artistes out there,” said Kudakwashe.

The group has also become a platform through which children are equipped with life skills at a tender age.
“One of the reasons why the group was created is for it to be a way of supporting the children so they become self-sufficient to the extent of even paying their own school fees.

“We bring in professionals to assist them. We also invite pastors and other motivational people to help encourage and mould them into responsible citizens who reflect the message they are preaching,” he said.
