Imani Shola releases brand new emotive gospel ballad ‘Oxygen’

Gospel songstress Imani Shola releases her brand new single Oxygen out now on all digital platforms. The emotive gospel track is a beautiful reminder to continue to rely on God. With lush smooth vocals and reassuring lyrics, Imani Shola takes us on a journey of continuous surrender to Christ. Following the success of her first 3 releases which gained her 7,000 subscribers on YouTube and 120 followers on Spotify, the jazz-soul-inspired singer-songwriter’s latest track comforts listeners with soothing harmonies breathing life amid lines of lyrical truth.

Imani beautifully sings, 

“I’ve learned to trust You

I’ve walked with You long enough

It’s true I can trust You

I won’t figure it out, not my place

Lord, I trust You


In a foreign land, wilderness space, Lord

I will trust You

Come do what You do”

When asked about the new single ‘Oxygen’ Imani says,

“Oxygen is a reminder to breathe among uncertainty. It was written when I was learning to trust God amidst the unfamiliar. Following COVID, and in light of current global uncertainty, war and economic crisis, I hope this timely song keeps people’s heads and hearts high”.

Hailing from North London, Imani was raised on music, the daughter of a jazz saxophonist. A play-by-ear pianist and songwriter, she grew up on a diet of jazz, soul, and gospel – from Aretha Franklin to Miles Davis; Erykah Badu to Norah Jones; Nina Simone to Eva Cassidy to Mary Mary. Her distinctive harmonies and truth-filled lyrics wrap listeners in a rich sense of God’s love. She believes that if the music is good, people of all backgrounds will consider its message of hope.
