Gospel Singer Launches Second Album 

By Walter Wilson Nana

Stella Epey, Cameroonian Gospel singer has released her second album. After her debut album; Nothing No Pass Papa God, composed of eight tracks, the latest release; Strange Fire On The Altar is a nine- track CD, whose official launch has been slated for Saturday, October 30 2010 at the King David Square Hotel, Muea, Southwest Region. According to Epey, an evangelist with the Full Gospel Mission, her new album amongst other pre-occupations, decries the wrong doings in our churches.

Epey, who began singing in 1986, is also thanking God for all He has been doing for her, for her family. "From nobody to somebody today, I say big thanks to God. I am also encouraging all my fans and people of God that God will do same for them. They should not despair," she said.
To Cameroonians and the women folk in particular, she says, "Women have a lot of talent. They are virtuous, yet not fully exploited. Cameroonian women should not limit themselves. They can get to greater heights. Women should never say it is over until they have done it."

Before 1986, Epey had been in the singing ministry. Her Pentecostal background only spurred her dream and passion for singing.  From her childhood days and while a pupil at the Cameroon Baptist Convention, CBC, Centenary Primary School in New Town, then Victoria, now Limbe, the young Stella, had been singing and even won trophies for her school.

"From 1986, I took a serious commitment to serve Jesus Christ through singing. I have been singing across religious denominations within and out of Cameroon. I have been to Kenya, Cyprus and Bahrain thanks to Gospel music. Hopefully, I will be jetting to Washington DC, USA come December 2010 for a Gospel Musical Concert. There is no stopping for me in the world of singing. Thanks to music, I have met a lot of exciting people in and out of my immediate society," she said.

To her, the choice for the gospel genre of music is not of her making but God’s design. "I chose singing for God because He is the creator of music. The Bible says give praises to the almighty. I really love it. Music is my world. That is where I belong. It has placed me on a platform, where I work from it today," she said.

She added that, "Fortunately for me, I have a husband who is supportive. He has been picking my production bills. Making money from music has not been my major concern but as I sing along, I am supported by friends, well wishers and enthusiasts of gospel music."

The evangelist, Gospel singer has also been a practising nurse for seven years. She specialised in Midwifery at the Pennforster University in Texas, USA. Married to Pastor Andreas Epey, Stella is blessed with two children.
