Ijay finally releases her highly talked about album “In The Name”; a 7 track album which was carefully and spiritually arranged, will definitely bless your heart and stir up the longing for fellowship with the Father.
“The album “In The Name” stems from the various experiences with God at various times. Therefore, resulted in a creative blend that cuts across generations as seen in the seven songs, and so “In The Name” was picked as the title of the album; as it represents the very essence of Christ, being the bedrock of all creativity.” – Ijay
