Budding gospel singer Mrs Rachel Lamptey last Saturday launched her 10 track album titled “Alive Today”.
The event which came off at the Watered Gardens Church in Dansoman saw performances from other gospel artists.
The launch was compered by award-winning journalist Kofi Akpabli.
Born to Ghanaian parents, Rachel is the second of four children. Her late father, Mr Seth Tetteh Ashong-Katai, was a renowned writer, filmmaker and poet.
Though the introvert type, Rachel never shied away from singing in choirs, acting plays and reciting poems or Bible quotations regularly in church.
She did all the above to the admiration of people who witnessed her perform.
In high school (St. Monica’s Senior High), she wrote poems, one of which was featured in the school’s yearly magazine. After high school, she joined an amateur theatre company and was adjudged the Most Promising Actress in 1997 and the Best Actress in 1998 in the yearly Theatre Festivals organised by the Ghana Union of Theatre Societies.
According to her, “it [music] is the only medium that can make people cry, laugh, and dance and can get them glued to Christ.”
