…Her new album plans to inspire and motivate
Abigail Hamilton is back after a 3 year hiatus, with a new album to inspire and motivate people all over the world. This 26 year old Jamaican gospel recording artiste has had tremendous success and a huge fan base. Her music is uniquely blended with a mix of r&b and reggae. Her debut album, Let it Rain, was an instant hit. In 2011 she won Paramount Mega Gospel Award’s Album of the Year and the Female Vocalist of the Year.
Abigail Hamilton was nominated for countless awards including Kingdom Choice Awards, Kingdom Link – Atlanta Awards and Ensound Music Awards.
She inspires fans of all ages and has performed with the likes of Papa San, Mary Mary, Tye Tribbett, Shirley Caesar, J. Moss and JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise.
Abigail Hamilton has her eyes set on traveling the globe with the aim of spreading God’s love and peace through her inspirational, soulful and groovy music.
Getting the voice and the love for music from her dad, who was a member the renowned Jamaican Folk Singers, she is truly grateful that he taught her many musically inspiring lessons.
Hugely influenced by her loving aunt, Sonia, Abigail has blossomed into a woman of value and integrity who never lets her guards down which might cause her to stray from her prime goal in life.
I would love my music to inspire and raise up more people to minister and build the kingdom of God.”
Abigail co-writes most of her songs along with her manager Linton Atkinson. The words come from personal situations and happenings in the world.
“I’d say my biggest obstacle is myself… God has already paved the way for me as he has already ordained me to minister. I have to be obedient to his calling and trust he will bring me through,” commented Abigail.
A lover of seafood, upbeat Reggae gospel, especially — Sherwin Gardner— Abigail, who could have been a dentist, also toys with the trap set (drums), saying that her music is inspiring, relatable, hopeful, anointing, and fun.
From her very first performance at the Boulevard Church of the Nazarene in Kingston, Jamaica to her best performing experience in Brooklyn New York, there have been many challenges, lost and broken friendships but her journey has been very rewarding thus far.
Her performances and her music motivate her to continue, “Many were able to relate to my music and many accepted Jesus as their lord and savior,” she said.
She still has a lot of work to do and says, “I haven’t yet reached my goals there are many who still don’t know Jesus as their personal lord and savior.”
She is currently embarking on her sophomore album after a three year hiatus. If her first album is anything to go by, the new project will be a statement to the world that says she is a serious artist.
Abigail thinks that this album will be her breakout album. The album will positively impact Jamaicans and millions around the world. She plans to capitalize on the countless opportunities and work aggressively to achieve them by, “Showing kindness — many tend to neglect that simple yet powerful gesture — and continue following the will of God for my life,” she told The Caribbean Current.
