It is indeed a ground breaking record and never before experienced in the gospel music industry to have an up and coming artiste who has within the space of two years come up with such an amazing impacts in the gospel music industry.
Ruke Gure is a Nigerian born gospel artist who hails from Delta State, in the south-South region of Nigeria. She is a graduate of the prestigious Delta State University, Abraka with
a bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology.
Her quest to become a gospel artiste was borne out of her conviction and acceptance to become born again when she received Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior years
back on campus.
Ruke Gure is a dynamic songwriter and a singer who started singing from the age of four years, but began singing professionally about a decade ago. With her unique sound. She has captured the very essence of true worship as she faithfully serves in her home church, Gospel Pillar Ministries where she continues to lead thousands in worship.
Ruke released her debut single “Before Before” in May, 2020- a song which she described as a reflection of her past and gratitude for her present. “The song is a journey from darkness into light and has continued to be a blessing to many around the world” she said.
Her debut Album “Melodies of love” was released in October, 2020. The eight tracks album had songs like; Sweetest Friend, My God is good, None like you, Sound of Revival, Prince of Peace, Before Before, Without you, and Your Holiness. Among the aforementioned, songs like ‘Prince of Peace’ to afro pop songs like ‘Without
You’ and the ‘Revival’ were really mind blowing. After the success of her debut album, “Melodies of love” which had a massive reception
worldwide with over 200,000 streams came this beautiful body of work, “Emerging Glory” Album which have amazing songs such as Shine to the world, ‘House of Great, See the Light, You Know Me, Love To Jesus, I Am Gonna Testify, Running over. The songs which Ruke said were birthed from a broken and contrite heart have Gospel music lovers saying
they are capable of getting one off their feets and also inspires you to praise God.
Interestingly, Ruke released another single titled ‘shine to the world’ in 2021. Shine to the world is an inspirational song that calls forth the light in you. She however released the second album titled ‘Emerging Glory’ on the 9th of October, 2021.
The album “EMERGING GLORY” is an electrifying collection of songs that embodies the glory of God. The idea behind the body of work is to affirm that it is time to break forth, to emerge and represent all that God our father has called you to become.
Furthermore, her passion and commitment to harvest more souls for the kingdom of God
kept pushing her to do more writing and recording leading to the release of her third
album, titled “The Awakening” (1.0), from her debut concert on the 26th, August, 2022.
The album had songs like; Worthy of my song, Ovie Ri Vie, Arise oh my soul, My
rewarder, We have won the battle, You are great, I am Gonna testify, Good God, Running over available on Apple Music and many others.
Ruke Gure is no doubt the wave of the moment as she is gradually becoming a household name in the gospel music industry. This is evident in the manner people are reacting to her songs especially the latest singles like ‘All my devotion’ released on the 3rd of February, 2023, Worthy of my Song featuring popular producer, Efe Macroc (Acoustic version) released on the 29th of May, 2023 and Hosanna released on the 27th of June, 2023 respectively.
Conclusively, you will agree with me at this point that God is using Ruke’s ministration to
return his people closer to him through praise and worship ostensibly to save them from sins and sorrows which is the actual purpose of God Almighty to humanity.
That being said, it is indeed the manifestation of God’s love and divine grace for Ruke Gure and her ministry to have been able to record three wonderful and powerful albums with more singles within the space of two years. Her songs are geared towards drawing souls into a deepen level of intimacy with God our father.
