Nozipho Phiri: Joyous Celebration Star Prepares To Record Debut Solo Album
Nozipho Phiri has mesmerized audiences in South Africa and beyond with her powerful soprano vocals as a lead and background vocalist for the acclaimed gospel group, Joyous Celebration. Known for her emotive performances and commanding voice, Phiri has been a standout figure in the gospel choir. Now, the Empangeni native from KZN is stepping into the spotlight with her highly anticipated debut solo album.

Phiri’s musical journey took flight in 2010 when she competed on South Africa’s gospel show “I Want To Sing Gospel,” landing in the top 10. She later joined the prestigious Joyous Celebration ensemble, where her dynamic performances on hits like “Mayenzeke,” “Mukhulu Ujesu,” and “Ngizokulandela” solidified her reputation as a vocal powerhouse. However, for this seasoned singer and vocal coach, Joyous Celebration was just the beginning.

On June 29, 2024, Phiri will unveil her extraordinary gift to the world with a live album recording at the Goshen City Church in Johannesburg. The album is poised to be a transformative experience, blending traditional South African gospel elements with contemporary influences that highlight Nozipho’s versatility as an artist.

“This album is a reflection of my faith journey,” Phiri reveals. “Each song is deeply personal and stems from my soul’s encounters with God’s grace.” While the details remain a mystery, Phiri teases fans with the promise of special surprises and potential collaborations. With a background supporting some of South Africa’s biggest musical acts as a background vocalist, she possesses a wealth of talent to draw upon.

Having contributed to numerous singles and live recordings with Joyous Celebration, Phiri is well-equipped to captivate audiences with “Unleashed Worship.” For this dynamic soprano, gifted with a celestial voice, her solo debut is destined to be a divine experience
