TolumiDE (pronounced toe-LU-mee-day) is on the cusp of becoming a household name in gospel music. In a world of cookie-cutter artists, TolumiDE breaks barriers and liberates souls with the refreshing sound she brings to inspirational music. With her Nigerian and Canadian background, the recipient of the 2009 African Heritage Award for Outstanding African Artist and multiple 2006 Canadian Music Award Nominee is set to take the gospel music community by storm with her eclectic and riveting performances on her debut, full-length CD, My Love releasing April 27, 2010. The project is a sonic collage of urban, contemporary gospel, reggae, funk, soul, and R&B music and of course, African rhythms. But for TolumiDE, music and its differing styles are simply a means to an end; for her, it�s all about delivering the uplifting and eternal message of Christ through song. Growing up in Nigeria, TolumiDE honed her musical gift as a youngster, but ultimately pursued her education in Graphic Arts. As a student at Toronto�s York University, she found herself chasing her first love and ended up as a member of the multiple award-nominated group �Women Ah Run Tings�. With a focus on Dancehall and reggae, the group opened up for artists such as Beenie Man receiving airplay on Much Music, Canada�s #1 Video Music Channel. In 2008, she embarked on a solo career and released an EP entitled Specialty. The single, �Because You Know� was featured on the Green October - Volume I mix project and the song�s video received airplay on MTV Base Africa, Channel O, Nigezie TV and a number of online media outlets.My Love, TolumiDE�s new release, brings her much joy and a sense of satisfaction. ..Working on the CD was invigorating, motivating and inspiring for me,.. the artist shares. ..The process of songwriting and going into the studio is like working on an art piece for me. I always come out astonished at the masterpiece unfolding thinking, Did I really write all that?... She is also thrilled about the many amazing people she had the opportunity to work with during the recording of the project. ..I am so blessed to work with some really talented producers and musicians and sound engineers - Blaise Tangelo, John Bashengezi, Ngouma Lokito, Tery Poindexter, Erik Dennis, Mark Baker, Alan Gaffere, The Ogunfiditimi Brothers and others. The process can be tiring (late and long recording sessions!!) at times, but loads of fun. I'm constantly visualizing who may enjoy and be inspired by the music and always get loads of encouragement from my family, friends and fans!!!,.. she shares.

Soul Influence is an a cappella septet, African in it's choice of rhythm and beat, Afro-jazz in its musical style, Christian in its conviction and lyrics, service to God and fellow man in it's focus.

The groups name reflects its desire to Influence Souls through its music ministry. It can be felt in the simple melodies which you�ll find yourself humming to long after you�ve heard them. It is comprised of young people from Zimbabwe, Kenya, Zambia and The Democratic Republic of Congo, who headed a call to work for God through the unifying power of music and its ability to transform lives.

Against a backdrop of Western Culture, Soul Influence produces a fusion of distinct African spiritual sounds of Zulu, Shona, Ndebele, Bemba, Lingala, Tonga, Taita and Swahili origin with contemporary Christian gospel music. Soul Influence sings richly layered vocal harmonies, combining the intricate beat and rhythm of the motherland with the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. The result, a powerful sound that is pleasing to the ear and soothing to the soul. The music is deeply rooted in African tradition and culture but the message is universal, it�s the message of Jesus Christ. The sound and rhythm of the music brings to life the vibrancy of Africa to the hearts of those who hear it.

Soul Influence believes that its purpose for being here on earth is greater than itself. That is why they are more than just a singing group. Their prayer is to reach out to both the local and universal community and in so doing better the society we live in. They are the AIDS Ambassadors of Africa to the world. By raising their voices in song, they hope to raise the awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.
