Osinachi Joseph, the Nigerian gospel singer better known as Sinach, has been honoured by a US congresswoman with a letter of commendation.
The musician broke the news in a post via her Instagram page wherein she shared details on the recognition letter.
In the letter, Sheila Jackson Lee, the lawmaker representing Texas constituency at the US house of representatives, said Sinach was honoured for her “tireless efforts” to propagate the gospel.
Lee, who signed the recognition letter, also hailed the Nigerian singer over the success of her recent concert held in Houston.
The concert titled ‘Sinach: Night of Worship Houston Texas’ had featured international gospel singers including Micah Stamply, Dee Jones, Da’dra Greathouse, and Todd Dulaney.
“Through your efforts, the body of Christ is able to reach a higher level of praise and worship. They have the freedom, through song, to discover their destiny and maximize their hidden potential through communion with the one true God,” it read.
“Indeed, your tireless efforts are completely deserving of the respect, administration, and commendation of the United States Congress.”
The lawmaker also commended the Nigerian singer for using the power of music to “unite the world” regardless of people’s inherent differences.
“Music is one of the most important and powerful things in life. It brings people together and allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit,” the letter read.
“No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics, or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves; we are all human beings. Thank you for spreading this universal language throughout the world.”
With numerous awards and recognition, Sinach has established herself as a prominent name in the global music landscape.
