Gospel musician Joe Mettle is gearing up for Ghana's first major live album recording for his latest work Sound of Praise.
The musician is hoping to be the first Ghanaian artiste to achieve this foot which has been accomplished by several world renowned music acts and groups including Hill song.
The live album recording entails a live recording of songs and videos for an album at a venue in front of a live audience. Joe Mettle said in an interview that although there have been a few of such recordings, his will be the first of its kind in Ghana.
'We are capturing the live atmosphere instead of going to the studio and recording it,' he noted and added that he will be involving a live audience in the recording. The live recording forms part of his annual Praiz Reloaded concert and Joe Mettle is hoping to fully record the 12-track album and its video at the event in about two hours.
The Worship Leader explained that it is 'a conscious live recording unlike others where they capture the video. This one is properly planned, prayerfully planned and technically planned.' Asked how ready he was for the history-making event, Joe Mettle revealed that his Love Gift Band and himself had been preparing for the event for about a year now.
The June 23 Sound of Praise live recording will come off at the Royal House Chapel International Church, kaneshie roundabout, Accra, 4:30am. Apart from Joe Mettle, renowned music acts including Danny Nettey and Cwesi Oteng, who have been featured on the album, will be performing at the event.
Joe Mettle said patrons should expect 'an experience of a lifetime. I am not the type that just excites people; I like to tap from the heart of God so when I tap I [will] share it with the people that come to the event.
You will never leave the place the same.' Joe has been doing gospel music commercially for about ten years now. He started his career with award winning music group Soul Winners. Sound of Praise is his second album, his first was titled, The Gratitude.
