Besenjo and Harlem Gospel Choir offer blessing to the world with new single ‘Risen Lord’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Anybody who listens to the music of East Coast R&B artist Bsenjo should be blessed. With an otherworldly vocal ability and uplifting lyrics, this young artist on the rise is showcasing an impressive talent that has led to multiple collaborations with big names in the industry. And she’s set to expand that notoriety to the global stage with her latest hit single “Risen Lord,” slated for release across all streaming platforms on Sept. 19.
Born Belinda Senjo in the northwest region of Cameroon, this contemporary Gospel artist and songwriter eventually moved to the U.S. in her teenage years to pursue music. Prior to moving to the States, however, she started making a name for herself as a young woman with an impressive vocal range and the ability to emote with others through song. In 2010, while still living in Cameroon, she released her first album “Stand On Your Faith.” And though the reception from that project was limited to her region, it was enough to spur her on to continue pursuing a dream as a global recording artist.
In 2013 she won the American DV Lottery and was able to move to the U.S. Soon after arriving she began to do covers of artists who inspired her – including Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Tasha Cobbs and CeCe Winans. She would post the covers to her various social media platforms and began gaining an ever-increasing group of fans. In 2014 she decided to showcase her talent to the rest of the world by auditioning for America’s Got Talent, and then again in 2016. The experience took her career to the next level.
She hasn’t looked back since, and in the ensuing years she has dropped hit single after hit single. The latest is “Risen Lord,” and it’s the perfect song to showcase her evolution as an artist. Featuring the esteemed Harlem Gospel Choir, the song serves as an acknowledgement of everything God has done in her life and give Him all the glory for the success she’s seen to date as a recording artist.
“Through all the storms in my life and the dark times, he has always been there to light my path and get my way around it and through it all,” Bsenjo said. “More than anything I want my music to be known for its authenticity and for helping people to know the fear of God. Everybody listening to my song should end up being blessed. I want to give people Jesus, not goosebumps. I want them to learn about and appreciate the love of God – and reflect on how good God has been to us. Every single moment of our lives is because of His mercy and grace. He will always be there during our dark times and our happy times. So more than anything I want my music to inspire people to trust God.”
