Gospel Musicians Must Think Of The Business Part Of The Gospel – Joe Mettle urges
Gospel musician Joe Mettle has called on the need for gospel musicians to pay abrupt attention to the business side of gospel music.
It is often argued on that gospel musicians do gospel – the work of God – hence do not need to charge when they perform at shows.
But come to think of it, what should a gospel musician use in promoting his songs, recording, studio sessions, and even tours – when he/she thinks of growing a fan base?
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the award winning singer said, even though Gospel musicians are meant to use their works to win souls for God, how else will the person be able to do good music if there is no money to fuel it?
Joe Mettle stated he believes in producing good music that can stand the test of time and touch the hearts of people which one needs money to do.
“If you do quality work it goes far when it goes far. It attracts people into the ministry and also more people patronise,” he explained.
Joe Mettle told KMJ, “we are focusing on what God has called us to do by seeking the kingdom and all other things, the money and business is part of the other things.”
