'Here I am to Worship', the Kenyan version

20 July 2014, 11:02 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Though this isn’t an entirely new song, it is a pretty good take on the original song titled “Light of the World (Here I am to Worship)” composed in 1873 by Arthur Sullivan.

It is what local musician Gerriey Wainaina refers to as a “Africanised” version of this all so beautiful worship song loved and appreciated across the world.

It is always hard to make a really loved song better, but I can confidently say that Gerriey and his band have managed to pull it off. The track is captivating with a very distinct African feel to it, more precisely Kenyan. It integrates a modernized tune to what is traditionally a very simple worship song and makes it amazing.

The video isn’t left too far behind either. It features children playing instruments for the song, and gives it a very cool and innocent feel to it. The children are, according to Gerriey, some of his music students who he decided to feature in his performance.
