Victoria Adexa (UK Song writing Contest Semi Finalist) began singing and writing inspirational music at the tender age of eight. The first song she penned was entitled "My Heart Is Burning", which proved that a new gospel artist with a passion for the Lord was born. Over the years Victoria Adexa has nurtured her 'professional sound and mature voice' Gospelfava.com and gift of writing songs by being active in her Father's church choir, studying music, entering talent shows and attending gospel concerts. In her own words "I am only the mouth-piece, it's the Lord who makes the sound you hear". So fast-forward to 2008 and Victoria has written and released an EP project entitled 'The Prologue' produced by one of UK's leading worship leaders, Noel Robinson, headlined numerous shows and supported gospel sensations Muyiwa and Riversongz's.
Critics describe her as "a singer with an undeniable talent and passion for inspiring". On 29/5/09, 'Time to Pray' reached number 4 on the NCM UK Charts and is also being played on over 300 radio stations around the world. The Prologue is regularly played on top UK radio stations such as Premier Christian Radio, UCB, Radio Cardiff and Platinum Radio and generated reviews and interviews in Pride Magazine Gospelflava.com and The Voice Newspaper.
Now spring forward to 2013 following a musical sabbatical and it’s time for the masses to be introduced to something new from this talented young lady. Namely Take Not a salsa infused, up-tempo track which sings of the goodness of the Lord, guaranteed to get you moving and Gospel Blues a bluesy, soulful inspired track reminding us of the faithfulness of the Lord.
With production values being sky high. The project was produced by veteran British gospel artist and worship leader Noel Robinson, who stepped in as a result of Adexa approaching him directly.
All songs were written by the artist, serving to demonstrate her exceptional composition skills. She describes her music as a collective of jazz, salsa, R&B and ballad.
The strongest cut is "Time to Pray", a ballad with encouraging lyrics and the important message of finding time to pray and building on a relationship with God. As the opening track, it's pleasing to the ear with its strong piano base courtesy of Luke Smith. (The song is also found on the soundtrack for the Christian movie Saving God released in the fall of 2008. The single was included on the album after it was entered into and won a online competition.)
The second track, "Turned Around", is autobiographical and explains how God miraculously changed Victoria's life around when it was a mess. She explains how she was raised in her father's church and began singing at the age of 8, joining the choir, entering talent shows and participating in gospel concerts. Victoria describes how she lost her way for a little while; the song, with its lively jazz theme, is her testimony of God's redemptive work in her life.
"2dream" is an inspirational number in which Victoria encourages the listener to never give up on their dreams. As a ballad, its lyrical content is strong, and it's destined to uplift your mood and just make you feel good.
"Praise Party" is a dance track, and you will be unable to keep your feet still while listening to it. Victoria's singing inspires you to lift up your voice and just praise the Lord. The song reveals even more of the strength of Victoria's vocals accompanied by a catchy backing track.
The Prologue sets the table for a much anticipated debut.
