Sinclair banks on the Word of God
This is the second of our 10-part feature looking at the entries in this year's JCDC Gospel Song Competition.
ANISHCA Sinclair says she has been singing for as long as she can remember. A member of the praise and worship team at Church on the Rock in Kingston, she is also one of the 10 finalists in this year's Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) Gospel Song Competition.
The 29-year-old spoke to the Jamaica Observer about her "inspired" entry, The Word of God.
"The song expresses my struggles, fears, hopes, desires and my faith in an unchanging God. It is also an encouragement to others to have faith
in God, no matter their circumstances," Sinclair said.
The former Tivoli Gardens High and Portmore Community College student said it was an honour to be selected for the final. And, even though the schedule is proving to be hectic at times, she is making the most of it.
"It has been quite an experience. I have enjoyed every minute of it... the studio sessions, going to different places, meeting new people, interacting with the other finalists. It has been a blast," she said.
Looking ahead, Sinclair said she is hoping the competition will offer her an even bigger platform to continue her work, and even an album.
The JCDC Festival Gospel Song Competition final is scheduled for the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre in St Andrew on Sunday, July 27.
