The Harbour City Mass Choir (HCMC) has launched its new single titled ‘In Christ Alone’ to spread hope during this pandemic period.
The single, which is a popular christian song, originally written by Stuart Townend and performed by Keith Getty of Integrity Music in 2001, is already known internationally to have been of immense blessing to many.
During an interview with the Project Manager, David Osabutey, he established that the reason for this song choice is basically to preach faith and hope.
Head of the Administration & Finance Team of the Choir, Angelo Dadzie shared the scripture on which the project was grounded;
“According to Acts 4:12 he said, Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. This scripture clearly states that our salvation is found in Christ alone, hence, the foundation of our project.”
The song, which was launched on August, 23 2020 the same day the Choir was inaugurated 21 years ago, was significant in showing the power of God at work through the Choir in delivering on its mandate of impacting the youth and many lives 20 years after its inception.
The Project Manager went on to describe the components which make the project unique:
“The whole project is unique because of the choice of song – In Christ Alone is a special song which reminds us about our total dependence on God and his Son Jesus Christ.”
“Another unique thing is that, the project, which took three and a half months to complete, was executed via online recordings by members of the Choir from various locations across the globe.
The “In Christ Alone” project which was produced by the HCMC 20th Anniversary Transition Team was initiated by the Head of the Music & Technical Team of the Choir.
Thereafter collated, converted and arranged by Nick Records and then mixed and mastered by Kaywa of Highly Spiritual Music.
Roger Quarshie of RoCept managed the Graphic Designs while Samuel Annor of K-Qube Studios handled the video editing. The demo and overdubs were recorded at Virtue Studios (NOM) in Tema.
“……once upon a pandemic……. a song re-emerges from a lockdown……..so the elect affirmed their faith in Jesus Christ by embarking on a project dubbed In Christ Alone”
HCMC is a very dynamic inter-denominational Choir based in Tema, Ghana with a clear purpose of impacting the youth through contemporary gospel music, school outreach programs, music ministry workshops and peer counselling.
