LIFE AND BACKGROUND
In my teenage years, I loved music a lot, and each time I sing, people around me would always comment on my songs. It all started in my primary school days, when I was always chosen for the cultural dance and most times in my cultural group I would be asked to lead the song as we dance during our school events. As time went on I joined my church choir in Bible Life Church while I was still in primary school. In the choir even though I was the youngest amongst them, I was chosen most times to be the lead vocalist. Thereafter I became the choir leader while I was still in primary six.
In my church then, there was a music group headed by my pastor known as “Living voice”. We released and album and I was among the lead vocalist in the album titled “we have victory” released in the early 90. That was were I had my first studio experience and that was how my music career started.
I got interested in drumming and I learnt how to play the drums , keyboard and lead guitar, later on I became one of the church drummers.
Mary E. Ezechukwu has published over forty educational books under Lifeword Publishing Company and has taught for over twenty years. She was her Church Choir Mistress and drummer for years. As the church choir mistress, most times she composes the songs the choir sings on Sundays based on the Pastor’s message. She studied Education at Lagos state University LASU. Her elder brother calls her a bundle of talent. In her church, many of those planning to get married always make sure she is the lead singer on the day of their wedding. They always say they want their wedding to be unique and she does make their wedding unique each time she performs.
