‘Everything changed’ when Marion Hall chose Jesus - Minister explains her new single
Minister Marion Hall is in a reflective mode with her latest single, If I Was Famous.
The self-produced track, which will be released officially on December 17, paints a stark contrast between her present life as an ordained minister and her past career as a dancehall artiste.
"What inspired me to pen this track is the way I'm being treated now that I'm with Christ, compared to when I was 'famous'. People used to be all over me, they'd pay a whole lot of money to see me, give me gifts and all these things. However, when I chose Jesus, everything has changed and some of the same people who supported me in the past, have turned on me now. That's why I wrote the song," she explained.
She said that the beat was sent to her by God and she met with Clarky from Chromatic and several musicians that he had worked with before laying down the track. From there the lyrics flowed.
MAGNIFY THE NAME OF THE LORD
"The message that I would love for listeners to take away from this song is that you can magnify the name of the Lord in any genre of music. You can praise God while rapping, singing R&B, while doing dancehall or reggae. Whatever genre it is, we have no limit praising God. Whatever music, whatever sound, whatever genre, let the name of the Lord be magnified. Praise Him in the dancehall, praise Him in the clubs, praise Him in the church, praise Him in the streets. He's all over," she stated.
With her official debut as Minister Marion Hall in 2016, the seasoned artiste has taken a spiritual path, preaching the gospel from the pulpit to the studio. She has released two albums, When God Speaks in 2016 and His Grace in 2018, as well as several singles, such as Mi Soon Alright and Mighty Warrior.
"I'm looking for this song to be the door opener for the album that's coming. Now that I've got the attention, people are assuming a lot of things like, 'she's coming back' but Lady Saw (her former moniker) will never be back. I will never be that person again," she said. "But if I have to go into the dancehall, the clubs, wherever God says to go, I'll go."
