Don Moen, the father of worship music, will join Nigeria's leading Gospel act Frank Edwards to release a 6 track worship EP. Though the set will drop this year, no date has been fixed yet. The EP, which is still untitled, was recorded at Frank's Studios, in Lagos, and has Don Moen singing in Frank's traditional Igbo language.
Don Moen who has penned classic worship songs such as "God Will Make a Way" and "God is Good" says the project has been in the works for over a year: "We've been talking about a project together for over a year now, and it worked out for me to be in Lagos today... We're working on an EP, five songs, we were all day today at the studio, we did three songs. We wrote a song together...we are excited about the project."
Edwards also revealed his excitement about the new collaboration EP, stating his admiration of Don Moen, and sharing details about how the veteran singer inspired his choice of career.
"It's more like a father and son relationship, because I grew up watching Don Moen on TV, listening to his music". Frank revealed. "His music inspired my writing and creativity, the way I pray. It's exceptional, I would have said it is a dream come true, but I didn't even dream about this.
"I thank God and I'm so excited about the EP. It's 5 powerful songs, and you would get it as soon as we are done recording. I'm sure you will love to hear Don sing in Igbo, and he just sang like an Igbo man."
