Lewisville, TX – June 12, 2020 – Florence Ekissi understands the message of Psalm 59:16 deep in her soul. The Psalm reads “I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” For Florence, the words are a testimony to her life’s journey. Years ago, she suffered a terrible accident which left her hospitalized with second-and third-degree burns. Her road to recovery was a long and difficult one. But from her ‘times of trouble,” Florence emerged a strong and passionate Christian singer and a songwriter of profound faith. This month, her journey culminates in the release of her latest single “Lord, here I am.”
Florence spent days in the studio recording her newest single “Lord, here I am.” The single, which has a soft pop style, is at once inspiring and calming to listen to. With the inclusion of several background singers, the song’s lyrics and style are uplifting and spiritual. The message of the song is an invocation to the listener to surrender to the Lord and His word. Florence’s singing is a beautiful and skillful tour de force that will leave the listener motivated and encouraged.
Florence’s uplifting and powerful music has won her fans from around the world. On her YouTube channel, her songs of faith have garnered more than 30,000 views along with dozens of positive comments of thanks and encouragement. Florence sings songs of Christian faith and the power of God’s love in both English and French. Her songs are an approachable and beautiful combination of African musical influences, upbeat pop-style beats and inspiring gospel lyrics.
“I have always loved music and singing,” explains Florence. “After my accident, my faith took on a renewed importance to me. I began studying the bible more intensely and I soon realized that the new scars I had were actually strengths to inspire me & that they would propel me on my mission forward. I understood through scripture that my life had been spared for a reason. Now I wake up every day filled with the love and light of God and I am inspired to share His love with others. I sing songs of faith that communicate both the word of God and also the passion and mercy with which those words are written in the Bible.”
Florence is a mother of two and the assistant pastor at the Precious Souls Outreach Ministry in Lewisville, Texas.
Lord, here I am will be released at midnight on June 19, 2020 and is available to stream and download on Spotify, YouTube and iTunes.
