Meet Endless Joy, gospel artiste passionate about spreading joy
Joy Ezeh better known as Endless Joy is a gifted gospel artiste passionate about spreading unlimited joy to individuals who come in contact with her music. The Imo State born singer who has released songs like Achiwalam, Chizaramekpere, Uncountable, It is True, Halleluyah and about to drop ‘Better’ on September 26th amongst others has a vocal texture that can calm frayed nerves.
The US based songstress noted that her songs are inspired by the word of God.
“If you have listened to my songs, you will realize that I am not singing for fun or to entertain, It is to praise &worship. It is a choice. It is from within. I am praising and worshipping God. The joy is that I am gifted with such a voice. It is a debt I owe to God and as such, my inspiration is simply from God.
Most of my songs are inspired by God’s word, from my life’s story and from my surroundings. I sometimes take time out to meditate too. During such times, I also get inspiration for songs. It is all about God. It is all about worshipping him”.
Going down memory lane, the Imo State born artiste said she has always been a goal getter even as a child.
“I was born in Imo State and raised in Umuahia, in Abia state. But I’m a native of Añara in Isialambano local government Imo State. I am the third female child of my mum.
Growing was quite tough. Everyone had to hustle to aid the effort of our parents. I was literally a goal getter at my teen stage. From primary to my secondary stages, my peers and mates knew me as one who didn’t see a mountain as an hindrance”.
On if gospel singers should engage in praise singing, she said gospel music is not an ordinary music genre, adding that gospel artistes are not supposed to engage in praise singing of men.
“Our kind of music is not ordinary. We don’t sing; we worship. Gospel artistes are not supposed to engage in praise singing of men. We are expected to worship God only using our gift. It is disheartening that most of the gospel artistes are now derailing because of materialistic tendencies which doesn’t correlate with our mandate which is enshrined in the book of Matthew 6:33. We are expected to worship God alone while God makes all things come through for us. Gospel artistes should stand firm upon their core mandate and stop selling their gifts for money like Esau did with his birthright”.
