Vo­cal Ex set for South Africa tour

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Soccer Cricket Sport - Sun­day Life Re­porter

ONE of the coun­try’s lead­ing gospel mu­sic groups, Vo­cal Ex last Fri­day wowed the au­di­ence at a colour­ful fundrais­ing din­ner at a Bu­l­awayo ho­tel.

Vo­cal Ex is a mu­si­cal group of young peo­ple from around Bu­l­awayo. The name was in­spired by the group’s pas­tor friend and brother Vic­tor Adams who was part of the Fam­ily of God Church be­fore he moved over­seas.

Vo­cal Ex is short for Vo­cal Ex­tra-Or­di­naire, it sim­ply says the uni­fied voice of the group is more than just be­ing the epic pre­sen­ta­tion of its ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Vo­cal Ex is mo­ti­vated to carry a mes­sage of unity, hope, peace and the love of God with a re­sound­ing melo­di­ous vo­cal au­thor­ity, min­is­ter­ing the word of God through song across na­tions.

Led by Them­be­lani Md­laz­iba, the group has toured ex­pen­sively in and out­side the coun­try and plans are un­der­way for an end of year tour to South Africa. The group is set to per­form in the North­ern Cape, Cape Town and Jo­han­nes­burg. Be­fore go­ing to South Africa, the group will hold a con­cert in the city be­fore the trip to South Africa and another one back home to close the year af­ter the tour.

“Vo­cal Ex was born out of a burn­ing pas­sion for mu­sic and de­sire to share their God-given mu­si­cal tal­ent in 2013 and held its first per­for­mance on 3 Oc­to­ber 2013. We are a con­tem­po­rary gospel choir of young, pas­sion­ate and tal­ented Christian men and women.

“We are an in­ter-de­nom­i­na­tional mu­sic out­fit. Our di­ver­sity is our strength, as tal­ented young peo­ple bring dif­fer­ent skills and knowl­edge to the team to com­ple­ment and build the Vo­cal Ex fam­ily,” said Md­laz­iba.

The group has also worked and shared the stage with a num­ber of top gospel mu­si­cians in­clud­ing 2008 Africa Idols win­ner Eric Moyo, now a mem­ber of South Africa’s Cel­e­bra­tion Choir to­gether with Mkhu­l­uli Bhebhe, Avis Dlamini, Ayanda Shange, Takesure Zama Ncube, Pas­tor G, Ntokozo Mbambo, Nqubeko Mbatha, Dudu Man­henga, Mathias Mhere and ZimPraise, among oth­ers.

“We also need sup­port from peo­ple of Bu­l­awayo, busi­nesses and those from out­side Bu­l­awayo to part­ner us so that we grow in God’s work. We have been spon­sor­ing our­selves all along, though here and there some friends have chipped in, so we are ap­peal­ing for part­ners as we pre­pare to tour South Africa and then close the year with a show here in Bu­l­awayo,” he said.
