We Played Free Shows For 10 Yrs

A renowned Ghanaian gospel trio, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, has revealed the group played free shows for 10 years before it started charging for the trio’s performance.

In a conversation with Miriam Osei Agyemang on 3FM’s Urban Blend they said they were singing out of passion and not necessarily because of money.

Asked how they have been able to cope playing free shows, something some artistes do not do today, the group said “it is their calling and that was our calling too”.

“We have scarified a lot and we are still sacrificing”, they added.

They explained that as Daughters, they have their policies and they know when to charge and when to play free shows, because in the estimation they get blessings from some of the shows they play.

For them, their biggest blessing is to hear people testify that their music has inspired them to give their lives to Christ.

Made up of Cynthia Appiadu, Edna Sarpong, and Monica Owusu  Ansah, the group has stayed together for the past 29 years and will be celebrating their 30th anniversary next year.

As a prelude to their 30th Anniversary, the group will be having a show dubbed “Back-to-Back” on April 22 at the Charismatic Evangelic Ministry, North Legon. The event is expected to be a celebration of how far God has brought the group and anyone who supports them as well as provide a platform for patron to have a feel of all the songs of the group.

They started as part of the choir of the Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries, then headed by the late Rev. Francis Akwasi Amoako in 1987.

Later, the General Overseer of the Church, Bishop Akwasi Asare Bediako, saw their potential and encouraged them to form a group.

They proceeded to minister through song at various church crusades and convention mostly for free.

They released their debut album “Anwanwa do” in 1990. Since then, they have won awards consistently through a number of albums and hit songs.

In 2003, they released “Aseda” recounting their trails, tribulations and their miraculous deliverance from death.
