Christian singer Maria Kadima recently released the ballad Je Te Desire, a real-life testament to her spiritual journey. It’s hard not to find something touching about it. Sung in French with deep emotion, and translated on the spot into a warm expressive purity, Kadima speaks of longing for divine contact. Yet this gentle prayer of a song expresses the artist’s wish to draw closer to God.
Kadima, who is from Congo and a worship leader in the United States now, became involved with music at age 7. Relying on her experience of education from her church and self-education, she is able to integrate the two sides of herself–spirituality with music.
In addition to displaying the full breadth of Kadima’s vocal skills, ‘Je Te Desire’ bears witness at one point in her development as a solo performer. Backed by her able band, she treats the audience to soulful music in which it can participate and thus find spiritual solace. Getting off to a good start, listeners can look forward to more sincere works extolling Maria Kadima’s faith.
