We’re seeing a recent surge in weddings in the Christian community this year. Could this be related to the prophecy from 2023 by Nathaniel Bassey regarding “Kingdom marriages” in 2024?

Congratulations to all the couples, and we look forward to hearing more good news.

We not only love all the engagement and wedding announcements, but we also love the accompanying love songs by the gospel singers themselves. We’ve curated a list for you. Check it out here.
