According to Awele, “In songs and in words, I am called to communicate the gospel of redemption and transformation to the world. God had always spoken to me about this task through visions, revelations, prophets, and individuals over the years, and when the time was right, I took action. Many times when I’ve been singing, people have approached me and said, “There’s something about your worship/praise ,” “There’s an extraordinary presence in your worship/praise,”.
Years ago, I recall returning from Israel and suddenly, by divine orchestration, we went into worship and praise on the plane before landing, and as we landed, the same comments greeted us as we departed the plane. “
Consequent upon these, it can be seen that the hand of God rests mightily upon Awele and her ministry and she is ready to take the gospel of Jesus to the ends of the earth through her music.
