Multiple-award-winning gospel musician Kingdmusic released a new single, Identity remix featuring SO from the USA, last month.
Kingdmusic said the message of this song was very clear: "I want to encourage listeners to never trade their calling for anything and to always know that they are made for more. I believe that Christians should be the trendsetters. They should be the ones influencing the world's culture to become a Kingdom culture, and not the other way around."
In Kingdmusic’s views, identity is not found in worldly things but in Christ himself. “We are in a world that says living for culture is a priority instead of living out our God’s purpose and calling,” Kingdmusic said. “I wrote this song to encourage myself and every person, young and old, who is doubting who they are in Christ. The song was inspired by the verse from Jeremiah 1:5 – “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations”.
