Just like the popular saying that after every tunnel, there comes a light. The long awaited album by Pastor Paul Adefarasin and the Chosen Treasure is finally ready to hit the stores. The album launch concert has been scheduled for Sunday June 26, 2011 at the prestigious Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos.
Paul Adefarasin, the senior pastor of House on The Rock Church and the executive producer of the album collaborated with some of Nigeria’s leading musicians on this project. The most popular among them are Sammie Okposo, Niki Laoye, Timi Dakolo, Segun Obe and Saxophonist Mike Aremu. The album which was recorded in the finest studios across the world has the production imprints of great producers like Cobhams Auquo, Rotimi Akinfenwa, Flo, Darasen Richards, Nichola Brown and Wole Oni.
According to Paul Adefarasin, “producing this album has in every sense been an epic journey. Not just in terms of the time it has taken to record the album itself, but more so in the evolution of Chosen Treasure from a small and diverse motley crew to the close knit family who have come to truly believe that all things are possible with God”.
He said further that “the process mirrors in many ways the seasons we must all go through in life, as God shapes and moulds us into hit-for-purpose vessels that can carry his presence and reflect his glory. The songs are as varied as the amazing gifts of those who wrote, arranged, performed and produced them. In truth, it is the plethora of circumstances we go through in life’s walk that enables us to witness the many facets of God’s awesome nature ranging from His mercy, grace, provision and power. For undeniably, it is in Him we live and have our being”.
The album boasts of 16 tracks which are Stumbled, Get Ready, I Still Believe, Change, Fight, God of My Praise, Champion, among other great songs. One of the tracks on the album, Fight featured international gospel star, Chevelle Franklyn.
