This is my second time taking part of a Songs of Praise filming and the most recent one was by for the best as I got to record with my vibrant Church family in our newly built blessing of a building!

It was great working on my first Songs Of Praise. It was even better being at my local church City Gates! So many of my friends as youth were involved which was a great training ground for us. The footage we have seen so far truly shows that we are a worshipping church of which I am so blessed to be a part of! It was also amazing be able to sing with my whole family on stage, Mom, Dad, Velisha and Jermaine!

Jermaine Lynch

Recording songs of praise was an awesome experience! It was an honour being part of a production that has such a rich heritage. What I really enjoyed was having the opportunity to worship with the nation inside my home church!

This project was a blessing to be a part of.

Joseph Perry

It was really an honour to work with Steve and Vel and the team from the BBC. To witness the precision in planning and attention to detail that goes into the level of production was a real inspiration. I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity to have been able to sing on Songs of Praise.

James Parker

Working with Steve and Velveta is always a pleasure. Their passion for telling people the good news of Jesus through music is inspiring. The Songs of praise experience was again another way of sharing the good news to as many people as possible in such a fun way. I’m thankful to be a part of it.
