'Sterling' praises from Petra Kaye
Petra Kaye

SONGS, including He Is Gone and Christ Alone Medley were among the bright sparks of gospel recording artiste Petra-Kaye's musical sojourn this year. Both songs are included in her live album Sing Praises, released over the summer.

Petra Kaye's continued success in the gospel world has resulted in her being nominated in the Female Artiste of the Year category of the 2022 Sterling Music Awards. The other nominees in the category are Marion Hall, Marvia Providence, and Rhoda Isabella.

"I am feeling very good for God's Grace upon me to be nominated and also for the fact that I was nominated among such other great ministers in that category," Petra Kaye said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

She continued, "The past year has been awesome. After we released a few singles, we started the album last year summer, had it recorded by mid-December, then some post-production work that kept us busy from last year into 2022. I am grateful for the faithful God that we serve, for the strength He gave us to pull through to have this lovely album entitled Sing Praises".

Sing Praises is produced by Danx440 Entertainment. Among its eight tracks are Consuming Fire, Oh it is Jesus, He is Gone, and Sovereign God Medley.

Last year Petra Kaye won the Breakout Sensation of the Year Award. She is looking forward to this year's staging of the Sterling Gospel Music Awards, scheduled for Saturday, October 8.

The gospel minister is the vice-principal of the Bright Star Prep and Basic School in Spanish Town, St Catherine. The passion-driven woman, who seeks to enhance the kingdom of God with her gift of singing, is a member of the New Life Worship Centre in Spanish Town.

Petra-Kaye Linton Lovelace made her recording debut in 2019 with the song Sovereign God. A Christian for over 10 years, she has no regrets about her decision to serve the Lord.
