Vicky Kitonga gives Kenyan in Boston a taste of her latest song “Amenikumbuka” Kenyan Gospel song
Vicky Kitonga a renown Kenyan Gospel artist ,Worship Leader, Gospel Minister, Song Writer and a Motivational Speaker gave Kenyans in the New England area “Boston” a taste of her new song “Amenikumbuka” soon to be officially launched in Kenya.
She was giving a word of encouragement at the newest Kenyan Church in Massachusetts Well of Worship Center, located on 145 Broadway Street,Dracut,Massachusetts.
Amenikumbuka is a swahili word for “He has remembered me” The song was inspired from her life experiences and how God has been faithful all along and has remembered her.
Citing from the Biblical Hannah,Hannah is a good example from the Bible of a person who God remembered;She entered into the Lord’s tabernacle to pray once again for her deepest need.
“And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said, ‘O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head” (1 Samuel 1:10-11)
Eli, the priest, observed her and saw such anguished behavior that he thought she was drunk and he rebuked her for it. When she explained that she was indeed not drunk but was pouring out her heart to the Lord, he said; “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.” (I Samuel 1:17) Hannah left the temple “and her face was no longer sad” (verse 18) because she had given her all in prayer and had made a vow that would cost her the very thing she sought.
The Bible says that God then remembered Hannah; she did conceive and had a male child whom she named Samuel. Hannah also remembered the vow she made to the Lord and when Samuel was weaned she took him up to the temple and entrusted him into the hands of Eli, the priest who had overheard her prayer.
Vicky Kitonga was awarded the prestigious Philanthropist Award 2013 by XTREEM AWARDS and has sang and produced many Gospel songs such as Asali,Alisema Atatenda,Hapa Kenya,Tulia with Evelyn Wanjiru among many others.
