The 7 Ambassadors
The 7 Ambassadors have been singing together for about 11 years. Formed while at ASWA (Adventist Seminary of West Africa) College in Nigeria. They were known simply as "The King's Ambassadors" and carried on a tradition of male ensemble accapella singing, which began in the 1960s. Today this group represents a new style of gospel music that blends primitive African rhythm and sound with rich, silky, modern harmony.
While in Nigeria, The 7 Ambassadors received recognition as the Best Gospel Artists in 1996 and 1997. After their tour of Sweden, they were then invited to be part of the music ministry in a worldwide Christian satellite outreach, up-linked near Chicago. In 1999, they were awarded first prize in the PowerLife '99 Gospel Talent Search held in Alabama.
Much of the music they sing comes from their own compositions. Nearly all the songs carry their own unique arrangements. Presently, the members of the group are all pursuing their own professional fields of study after graduate studies from Andrews University. "We combine our emerging musical careers with the completion of our degrees. Through our music, we hope to share the joy of what God has done for us and what He can do for you."
