Worship leader and pastor Nathaniel Bassey spoke about the hope and joy worship leaders can bring to people in times of fear and uncertainty, like what the world is experiencing now with concerns about the spread of COVID-19. 

As of Friday, there are over 209,800 reported COVID-19 cases and over 8,778 deaths worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

At the time of Bassey’s message, the new coronavirus hadn’t yet been declared a pandemic and he had only heard of one case in his home country of Nigeria.

Bassey, a world-renowned gospel artist, is known for his musical talents and trumpet paying. When asked what word God had given to him to share with pastors and worship leaders gathered at gospel singer William McDowell’s second annual Deeper Worship Intensive, he offered advice on how to lead others in responding to the new coronavirus strains.

“It may not mean much to you, because here [in America], you have healthcare. You have a system that works and it can contain it. But back home, Jehovah is our [only] healthcare,” Bassey said.

“I was on the plane thinking that perhaps we were born for such a time as this. I’ve had this word strong on my heart. It’s time the sound carriers release the song of deliverance.”

Known for his songs “Imela” and “Onise Iyanu,” Bassey went on to quote 2 Samuel 24:25. The scripture says: “David built an altar to the Lord there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the Lord answered his prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.”
