Yolanda Writes

Chords from David's Harp


Yolanda Masamba

I believe that voices are like outfits and words are bodies that need to be clothed. Each voice can dress a song in a unique way, that's where my passion to write for other's stems from. 

I've always enjoyed writing and being creative with words, over the years I have written songs and shared them with family and friends who have encouraged me to put the gift to work. My previous invovlement with various gospel groups such as Free to Worship has taught me that, songwriting is more than just being able to string words together, it's about taking a simple thought or feeling and breaking it down in way that can be understood by many, irrespective of age. 

Proverbs 18:21, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and he that loves it will eat from it's fruit." Words are powerful, seeing the effect they can have on people is truly fascanating. Aldous Huxley, an English writer, Novelist and Philosopher once said that, "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressable is music." Heart felt words put together along side a melody, creates a master piece that many souls can connect with. What I like to call, personifying thoughts through words.
