Gospel artiste Caywama Edwards, known for her powerful and passionate renditions, has released the official music video for her song “Christ Child”.
The song has done well this season and has been played on a number of local radio stations, Cita Radio in Barbados, and UK-based SoulCure Online Radio, which has listeners in over 40 countries.
Some persons who have heard the song say they believe it will continue to be played even after this yuletide season.
Caywama Edwards Ministry launched the video on their YouTube Channel.
The video was filmed at the historic Fort Charlotte, 600 feet above Kingstown, with a panoramic view of the Grenadines. The video also features the Kingstown Methodist Church, which was purchased by missionaries of an old Roman Catholic Church and built by a congregation of slaves. It also features DJ Tarrus — “The New Creation” — who earlier this year dedicated his life to God’s service.
“This music video gives honor and glory to Jesus Christ, the Light of this World, as we celebrate his birth. The setting for this film is reminiscent of those bound by chains of sin. It presents Jesus Christ as the triumphant liberator for those who are oppressed and are in need of freedom. The anointing, vocal rendition, lyrical content and melodies of this awesome masterpiece has the power to break the yoke of mental slavery to sin as we glorify Jesus Christ, who is called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and our Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6),” the press release said.
Edwards’ ministry remains in high demand. She has performed at every major gospel function within the last few months and has been featured at the Nine Mornings festivities in St. Vincent and the Grenadines from Dec. 16 to 24.
Last week, Edwards’ team distributed gifts to children who were affected by the trough systems over the past few weeks, and disadvantaged children in North Leeward. This was done in collaboration with Jax Enterprises Ltd.
Residents of North Leeward praised the launch of the video.
“I have known her since she was a little girl, singing nursery rhymes on the back porch of her parents’ home whilst her father amusingly led the band of two on his guitar. There was absolutely no doubt in my mind that she would have launched in this fashion: it was just a matter of time,” said Edmie Charles, one of Edwards’ neighbors.
“Caywama is a natural. I am a very close friend of the Edwards’ Family. Over the last couple of years, I have seen this young lady mature spiritually and in her musical career. I am looking forward to her album ‘War,’” Veltie Jordon said.
