Taking back for the Body of Christ the music that the world is using to sell beer, maintain mediocrity in motion and misdirect minds, is the ministry of Evangel Band. God’s impression on Evangel began in 2003. Since then, the group has been joyfully proclaiming the good news of Salvation through Christ Jesus, worshipping Him and lifting His Name up. Sharing testimonies in song of walking with Christ, bringing hope, comfort, and encouragement from the eternal truths of the Word of God. The Lord is using the songs that He gives to minister to hurting people, and healing the brokenhearted.
Over the years Evangel has had the opportunity to share a Heaven-sent musical message that God really cares and can turn heartaches, trials, and tragedies into triumphs and testimonies; bringing peace, purpose and wholeness in Jesus. Colorful musical styling with something for everyone, God has continued to mold the Band into a unique ministry that is well received by people of all ages. Evangel represents the only Haitian gospel band that has performed Live on CTN (Christian Television Network). With the release of their 2006 album “Kraze Baka”, they already reach almost all their fans by Internet and through the radio and television stations all over the world. To be precise, they are the big talk now in the South Eastern and North Eastern part of the United States, Canada and Haiti.
The masterfully arranged music tells a story as much as the lyrics do. Rich in expression and texture, songs are brought to life as they are sung with truth and passion. Musicians from different churches and background, bring a unique flavor to Evangel. The contributions of several amazingly talented professional musicians, experienced and successful, all combine to create a sound that is fresh with lyrical substance.
This amazing young Haitian band from Tampa, Florida has won an array of honors. Six months after the release of their Kraze Baka album, Evangel has sold over 10000 copies and won the 2006 HaiMusic Awards for “Best Gospel Artists of The Year.” They give God the glory for their quick success and they thank Boyo Magazine and HaiMusic Award, the unique award show that takes the time to acknowledge those who have contributed largely to the Haitian music in general. Evangel hopes to perform live next year at the award celebration as a sign of support for their outstanding job. Evangel believes in a full band strategy in order to live above the level of mediocrity in our Haitian gospel industry. “It is all about Him. The message of Christ and His deliverance not only resides in our songs, but in our hearts and through our deeds. We aim to reach all who will listen, and those who will hear, says Ricardeau Lucceus”.
“It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.” (Jn 6:63)
