Gospel reggae artiste Jannett Scott Garvey feels empowered by the early reaction of gospel lovers to her latest single, I Love You, a heartfelt celebration of the power of God’s love.
“This song was given to me by the Lord thy God to heal the nation worldwide. My voice was also empowered. I am singing amazing and powerful in Jesus Christ name amen,” Jannett Scott Garvey, who is also an evangelist minister, said.
The song was released on the Women Ah Run Tings label and Nigel Bowel of Toots and the Maytals provided engineering and mixing work on the project.
Garvey has built up a decent following online through her gospel ministry on Facebook. Gospel talent and worship leaders speak to a unique demographic that looks to them for inspiration and entertainment. And Garvey is the very essence of that.
“God’s words, delivered through music, can change lives and lift hearts, I believe that this song can do that,” she said.
She plans to amp up promotion of the I Love You single in Jamaica by shooting a music video in the near future.
