It’s not often that an artist emerges with the combination of a supreme voice, a masterful musical ability, and a spirit-filled ‘grace’ that calls out to one’s soul. Princess Mariam Joan-De Agbila is a rare gem, and she is about to take on the world with her debut release titled “Thanksgiving”, a Holy Spirit inspired album written from the depth of her soul and filled with power and anointing.
Born in Accra, Ghana and raised in Montreal, Canada, singer/song writer/ poet/drummer and author, Joan-De as she is affectionately known, started singing at an early age. Her passion for music continued in college, where she sang and worked on a charitable collaborative single to support a grieving family that had lost their mother to cancer. Singing for the Lord brings her joy and fulfilment. She was a member of the celebrated Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and excelled under the leadership of founder and then-director, Trevor W. Payne, until her relocation to the United States.
In the States, Joan-De’s music ministry has continued to flourish at Kingslight Chapel International in Woodbridge, VA, under the leadership of her pastors and renowned authors, Apostle Dr. Daniel Armah and Rev. Barbara Armah. Her debut album will be launched at the church premises, at 14348 Jefferson Davis Highway, Woodbridge VA 22191, (Next door to Woodbridge International African Store and right behind the Popeyes off Route One, Former TODOS PLAZA) on June 30th, 2018 at 6pm.
Joan-De is a mother of three wonderful children and wife to her loving husband Emmanuel, who has been so supportive of her ministry. In addition to her debut album, Joan-De is also working on releasing a motivational, inspirational and devotional book entitled, “Food for the Soul.” While the world waits for the book, they can marinate in her spirit-filled album. Thanksgiving was recorded and mixed by Rev. Emmanuel Nixon of True Way Studios. Visit Joan-De’s website to learn more about upcoming events, performances and so much more.
The album will be available on ALL major digital platforms and will also be sold in stores such as African Supermarkets in the DMV metro area.
