Freddie Kofi, a key figure in Britain’s gospel music community, is gearing up for the release of Aspire, a single which aims to reflect the spirit of aspiration inherent within the forthcoming London Olympics, as well as deliver a message of hope.
Freddie, a MOBO Award nominee and BASCA Award winner, who has performed throughout Europe and in front of her Majesty the Queen, is renowned for his reflective, thoughtful music.
He hopes Aspire will remind listeners that they are created with everything they need to achieve their dreams and ambitions.
He shared, “It’s amazing how many people I have met on my journey, who really don’t believe they have a purpose, as their dreams are often choked by social and economic circumstances. In recording Aspire, I wanted to capture both the coming out of troubled times, as well as the moving into a place of achieving your dreams – all in one song.”
Bishop Wilton Powell OBE, leader of the Church of God of Prophecy, feels there is much that people can glean from Aspire. He said, “It speaks to the need for having a vision that will provide focus and motivation to move forward, even when the chips are down and you are experiencing some of life’s most difficult challenges.”
