Watch! Loyiso Bala Reminisces On His Devine Music Journey That Started When He Was Just 8 Years Old – We know him as a successful, gospel star, television personality that has become one of the best leads in South Africa.
As a teenager, Loyiso Bala was professionally trained, accomplished top of his class, at the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir in South Africa.
He advanced and became the youngest conductor of the National Youth Choir at the age of 19.
This built the substructure for his solo career and towards the conclusion of the year of 2002, he journeyed on a world tour that witnesses him performing in London, America, Asia and the Middle East. At that moment his music congealed his reputation, status as South Africa’s king of R&B, with singles such as Girl Without A Name and Gimme The Night. His first album sold triple-platinum. That was prior to his transition to the Gospel.
Looking back to find out what he was really missing, Loyiso believed the big hole he felt was as a result of the spiritual aspect of his life.
“The only thing that disconnects me from my talent is the spiritual aspect. Right there and then I decided I was going to go and find it. I enrolled at the Rhema Bible School and took a course called Heart of Worship,” he said.
He took to social media to share an independent recollection accompanied by visuals of his 8-year-old self singing and beginning his music career.
