A gospel singer at his native Christ the Rock Christian Church in Balacanas, Consolacion, Cagayan de Oro City, Bañas was sent by his church to its United States counterpart, the Church for All in Owensboro, Kentucky in 2015.
Because Bañas is already a talented musician among his church fellows in Cagayan de Oro City, he was tasked to become a music minister in Church for All. And it was there that his fate began mapping out.
At Owensboro, Bañas befriended a music enthusiast named Aubrey Nhering. Nhering introduced Bañas t the bigwig music recording producers in Owensboro. The rest is history.
In a span of seven weeks, Bañas was able to compose seven original tracks. “I had all the time in the world. After all, my work in the church involves only weekends. So during weekdays, I retreat myself in the room, ponder for some Godly inspiration and began composing music. Of course, the lyrics were Godsent, too,” he quipped.
For now, Gray Sky Music and Double Windsor Records allowed him to release a three-track CD with the following country gospel compositions: I Will Rejoice, Tell Him I Love You and Healer of My Soul.
Yet more things are already running in the offing. Bañas still has 21 unreleased tracks to go.
Momentarily, Bañas will be performing among Christians at his native Christ the Rock Christian Church on August 12 at 9:00 a.m. and at Centrio on December 26 at 6:30 p.m. He’ll be back in Kentucky in January 2018.
