In the wake of this Ebola crisis that continues to ravage lives across Liberia and its neighbors, there has been an outpouring of engagement from Liberian musicians all over the world, voicing out their opinions and consoling messages through music.
Well, McDonald Parcular (aka MC Parcular) and 37 other gospel artists just stepped up their action releasing an all-star gospel single in sixteen vernaculars. This is so that, according to MC, the message can get to everyone. “The message in the song is encouraging all Liberians to depend on God; whatsoever the condition may be, there is hope”. Adding, “As you can see, our health workers are working, the government is doing her part, our donors are working and God is working into this situation.
“So to those who lost their parents and loved ones to Ebola, they shouldn’t cry because not everybody will die from this Ebola,” he told LIB Life. The gospel artist also stressed the need for Liberians to remember their God and not forget him.
“Cry No More Mama Liberia / In the midst of Ebola there is still hope for you / Ebola virus will not destroy you / This deadly virus will pass over you / Mama Liberia you will rise again”, goes the chorus of the song that was released and aired on ELBC radio on Wednesday, Sept, 24.
The song includes Mcdonald Parcular, Cyrus Thomson, Cecila Andrews, Addonies Rennie, Baryoe Nyegbeh, Morris Manah, Rebecca Kilby, Victoria Sobeor, Mesee Parker and many others who each take turns dishing their own verses on the Ebola crisis and the cries of people across the country.
Meanwhile, MC Parcular has been a performing gospel artist since 2001 and is popularly known across Liberia for his song title ‘I promise to serve the Lord’. He has four recording albums to his credit with the album titled ‘Focus’ being his latest.
