Nigerian born but hailing from Manchester; up and coming artist Zion, (Kunmi Ogunsola ) is a singer/ songwriter, musician and choir director whose approach to music has already positioned him as ‘one to watch’ amongst Christian music industry players.
Zion’s musical journey started back in 2008 as part of his church worship team as a drummer. His leader recognised Zion’s vocal ability and gave him the opportunity to start leading worship.
From this point on Zion grew in his gift, taught himself how to play the keyboard and honed in his songwriting ability by combining his love for poetry and the melodies he was discovering on the keyboard.
His membership of a small Redeemed Christian Church of God parish in Manchester didn’t hinder his gift from making room for him as he has ministered at the largest Christian gathering in the UK, ‘Festival of Life’ (FOL) and has been a backing vocalist for Lightchild.
Following the success of his debut single ‘Amen’, BBC Introducing artist, Zion has returned with another exciting track entitled, ‘Captured My Heart’ which was released on 17th March.
The announcement came with the revealing of the single cover to Zion’s fast-growing fan base. With his debut single receiving rave reviews alongside being featured on key radio stations across the country including BBC Radio – there has been a lot of anticipation around his second release.
“The response I got from ‘Amen’ was more than I could ever dream! So I can’t wait to share my second single ‘Captured My Heart’ with my supporters.”
‘Captured My Heart’ sees Zion show his vulnerable side and speaks of how a very difficult situation caused him to lose hope and his faith but his mother’s relentless love strengthened him through it all. About the single he said:
“Captured My Heart” is a personal reflective song that echoes our need for the space to be vulnerable and the struggle we sometimes have in maintaining hope.”
A strong melodic guitar which successfully fuses pop and soft rock influences to create a captivating sound befitting of its title.
