A large turnout of specially invited guests filed into Pulse8 last Saturday evening to experience a musical showcase produced by Oufah Music. That label's latest find, singer Spiritual, delivered a one-hour set from his album Awakening, which is distributed by VP Music Group.

Oufah Music also has international recording artiste OMI on its roster.

With his backing band in fine form, Spiritual worked the stage like a seasoned pro. He interacted well with the audience, his vocals were on point, and the transition from song to song was seamless.

“Spiritual's music is a spiritual inspiration. True to the philosophy of Rastafari, his music carries the message and his music reflects how our music has evolved worldwide. It is true to the roots of our music,” Culture and Entertainment Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange, told the Jamaica Observer.

As he did Time Has Come, Stand up To Rasta and a cover of Culture's Jah Jah See Them A Come, patrons rocked, danced and sang.

Spiritual was pleased with the large turnout and enthusiastic reception to his performance.

“It feels homely to perform for the first time in Jamaica. The turnout has been wonderful, and I really appreciate it. This is very nice,” he said.

A native of Allman Town in central Kingston, Spiritual (given name Horace Chin) said he was destined to follow his musical aspirations.

“I got a calling from the Father to do what I'm doing. I have been singing from I was in the church, right up to school. I also performed with a band in Chicago,” he explained.

Guest performers Iba Mahr and Droop Lion, who are featured on Awakening, performed at the launch. Iba Mahr appears on Liberation, while Droop Lion guests on Show Me The Way.
