Many musicians started their careers from the Church and for Gospel musician Ritaqueen, that should be the natural flow because the church is the best place for an artiste to hone his or her talent.
According to her, the church gives artistes the opportunity to learn the basics of music including playing any kind of instrument.
”Gospel music cannot be learned, is by inspiration. We can go to church to know who we are in Christ and build our faith, but I will tell any musician to start from the church if he or she wants to be successful. It is not surprising most of the good musicians started from the church” she told The New Publisher recently.
