Popular gospel crooner, Evangelist Funmi Aragbaye is set to add fun and excitement to the Yuletide as she hits the market simultaneously with a new CD entitled, “Highest Praise” and the VCD of her last album, 'Happy Celebration.”

For Aragbaye, “Highest Praise” is a thanksgiving album specially produced to commemorate her 50th birthday that was celebrated with fanfare on February 29 at the Premier Hotel, Ibadan, Oyo State.

She said of the album: “When I look at what God has done for me in life, I cannot but thank Him. I have no cause to regret answering the call of God to sing. As a music minister, I have traveled around the world several times. In fact, God has done great and wonderful things in my life that I cannot count. So, I have decided to produce the album to show gratitude to God.

A sneak preview of “Happy Celebration” video CD, however, reveals a superb presentation of aesthetics and quality. Shot with a hi-tech camera, the picture is beautifully presented while the sound is clear and audible.

A 5-tracker, “Highest Praise” parades hit songs like “Congratulations”, a wedding tune, ”Kabiyesi Re” and “Highest Praise” amongst others. Released by Wuraola Records and Films, the two works are available in music shops across the country.

“Evangelist Funmi Aragbaye has a good name which we are banking on as our marketing strategy. My intention is to repackage and re-launch her into the market because she has not always been around,” concluded Wuraola Records boss, Mr Jonathan Adeboye.
