Heavenward is made up of Adekunle Kosoko (Adekunle Gold) and Bakare Michael (MSBeats). They are contemporary gospel singers with soothing sound, enriched with modern R&B, and pop elements. The duo started as members of their church choir (C.A.C, Oke-Itura); by then, they were known as ‘Roots Of Jesse’. They have performed at different concerts, shows and church services. They became ‘Heavenward’ after one of their performances at the Redeemed Christian Church of God. The Area pastor changed their name because according to him, their songs will always remind Christians of the paradise promised by Jesus Christ.
Their music is influenced by the likes of Aaron Neville, Craig David, Brian Adams and R.Kelly. Their lyrical contents are inspired by messages listened to in church, congregational testimonies and general life experiences. Their major goal as singers and songwriters is to encourage young people to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They have had earlier releases like “Helpless Cry” and “My Home” amongst others. They describe their music as Christian Contemporary/R & B/Soft Rock.
“We aspire to reach those people who don’t have the knowledge of God and who are not in the body of Christ. At the same time we want to encourage the saints of God who are in the church, young and old, to continue living holy and to be strong in this journey of faith” they said.
