Upset, Democratic Republic of Congo pays tribute to singer Marie Misamu

The Democratic Republic of Congo is in shock following the sudden death of Gospel singer Marie Misamu on January 16, 2016, at the age of 42. The causes of death are unknown at this time, but it could be cardiac arrest.

Who was Marie Misamu?

Marie Misamu, born November 16, 1974, is a Congolese Christian singer in the evangelical gospel style. It was at the age of 11 that Marie began to sing. His friends, who would gather to hear him sing after school, are the first to be won over by his magnificent voice. Later, with the evangelist Debaba, she released her first album, gospel, "God recognizes everything". A great success.

Her successful albums are: Nazhiréa in 1996, Mystère du voile in 2006, Mystère volume 2 in 2007. She has also received the Mwana Mboka trophy twice, thanks to the dazzling success of the first volume of the album Mystère du voile .

Franck Mulaja, Congolese Christian musician, pays homage to him with these words:

“With a charming voice, a very excellent voice… I keep her an artist in the true sense of the word… An artist who loved her work very much. "

Her friend, singer Nathalie Makoma, honors her on social networks:

“Sadness overwhelms me. I'm missing words. I am in shock and become silent. Marie Misamu you were a gospel icon. You were my friend and you loved everyone. You liked your music. You breathed gospel and you had it in your blood. Today you left. Why ? We still need you. We still want to hear your voice. My tears are drying up. I cried a lot and I still cry. May your spirit rest in peace in the name of Almighty God. "

Marie will be forever engraved in the memory of the Congolese people. Her beautiful voice, her charm and her almost irreplaceable charisma will be missed by all believers who, thanks to her talent, have spent great moments of praise and adoration. For those who did not know Marie Misamu, here is one of her most famous songs: "Salela nga bikamwa"

At present, the organization of the funeral of our dear Marie is not yet known. May the Lord Jesus console the family of the deceased as well as all those who, through this tragic news, have found themselves on the verge of despair.

Rest in peace Marie Misamu.
