UNSCRIPTED (TY Bello)
It happened in a room with white walls. A polished grand piano, a keyboardist, a lead guitarist, a talking drummer and an audience of friends who were eager to tune their minds to songs never written, never heard and never performed.
And then we all waited, waiting for no one in particular but waiting for the ONE in particular. The sound engineers had readied their microphones, adjusted the decibels of every technology that would aid the smooth production and recording of excellent sounds.
And then He arrived the room. The One we had all been waiting for showed up like He owned the air that filled the room. Like He Had waited for us to recognise His presence at our discretion.
Tope Alabi felt a sensation and approached the microphone in a hurry, taking a posture of reverence as she sang, welcoming the presence of the sweet Holy Spirit who was already in our midst and we hadn’t noticed earlier. TY Bello followed, listening keenly to the direction that has been impressed on Tope’s heart.
Then came the spontaneous songs, as easy as a breeze- all seventeen songs, racing towards each other in worship, warfare, admonition and encouragement such that the listener has a full experience of God’s presence no matter where there were tilted in the journey called life.
The smooth blend of eloquent words of eulogy in brilliant Yoruba language from Tope Alabi was a lesson in pure palpable worship. Like reading the book of Jobs and Psalms simultaneously but in slow hurry.
From songs of welcome to the beautiful presence of the Holyspirit-We Have Come and Emimimo. To evangelical songs like Imole De, Oba Mi De, Logan Ti O De. Songs of worship- Awa Gbe O Ga, Iwo Lawa O Ma Bo, No One Else Like You, Kabiyoosi, Adonai, Eru re to Ba, All the Glory and finally Angeli, a song of admonition.
The Spirit of Light album by Tope Alabi and TY Bello is a full gospel album. A labour of love, put together for a period of four months after fresh songs from heaven had already been recorded. This involved the input of brilliant musicians and worship leaders including Wole Oni, Folabi Nuel, Wole Adesanya, George Ade-Alao, Segunfunmi, Josh Keys, MELA Music, Chuks Kalu and David Joshua of Ideal Concept Solutions.
This album is a testament to how we should live our lives unscripted before God because he has designed the contents and directions that our lives must follow to find fulfillment. More than a worship experience, this body of work is a lesson in faith because God always shows up when we make ready our heart and lives for his purpose.
