A Gwanda nurse, Sandra Sibanda has ventured into gospel music amid revelations she sometimes sings for the patients to give them hope and put smiles on their faces.
Sibanda recently released her debut single Umqaliwendaba, which she described as a song of triumph that encourages people going through difficult times to look up to God.
“I am a registered general nurse at Gwanda hospital and an up-and-coming gospel artiste with a sound that is rooted to culture. The song Umqaliwendaba talks about God being the author and finisher of it all. It is a song rich with Xhosa lyrics and praise names for God,” she said.
“I usually sing for the patients and it gives me peace, putting a smile on their faces and giving them hope. Actually, it is the norm at Gwanda hospital that we start our day with a chorus and a prayer and patients loves my voice.”
Sibanda said her inspiration comes from how people react when she sang at work, school and church.
