From humble beginnings, Cécile Manuela came to the United States with her family as a young girl from Cameroon, Africa. God had always been a part of her life, but her personal relationship with Him began in college.
“It was in college that I became aware of how real God was and how much He had done for me,” said Manuela. “I had fallen in love with popular music listening to the sounds of Michael Jackson and Celine Dion. Growing up, I covered their songs a lot! But suddenly, I felt a burning need to write my own songs in the genre that I loved to celebrate God through music.”
It was this realization that inspired Cécile to begin writing music to reintroduce the world to God. After five years of writing, she’s ready to release her debut EP, ‘Tomorrow (Will Take Care of Itself).’
“Each song on ‘Tomorrow (Will Take Care of Itself)’ has a unique message. ‘Millennial Heart’ was written to remind people that we are from God. ‘(This is the Cry of) Children Everywhere’ was written as a prayer asking God for strength in the difficulties we face as we strive to live His way of life. ‘In the Silence of the Night’ is a celebratory song for God’s abundant blessings in our lives. ‘Tomorrow (Will Take Care of Itself)’ is a song of encouragement and having faith in the face of adversity.”
She believes her music will speak to people today who are experiencing loss, anger, sadness, and distrust in God.
“There is so much division in our society. Now more than ever, we need to be kind and care for one another. Through my music, I want people to realize God is real, and that having a relationship with Him is the most important thing that can happen to their lives.”
Fans can listen to and download ‘Tomorrow (Will Take Care of Itself)’ by Cécile Manuela beginning September 14 on all streaming platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.
