The singer of contemporary Christian music known as Philia Dens has released her debut single, “Give Me Hope.” The track has been widely distributed to over 700 digital music stores online around the world. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Soulful and inspirational, beautiful and heartfelt, “Give Me Hope” is a sign that Philia Dens is a Christian musician the world should hear.
Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Philia Dens lists Whitney Houston, Kirk Franklin, Lara George, and Charlotte Dipanda. Her own sound takes the elegance of Houston and stirs into it the songwriting talent of Franklin and George. Dens' singing also has endearing, upbeat overtones similar to the exotic warmth which has made Dipanda an international favorite.
But while beauty is certainly present in “Give Me Hope” by Philia Dens, it is the message of her music that remains the focal point of her efforts. According to Dens, herself, this message is one of “Grace to forgive” and the “hope to live again.” She writes directly to her listeners and fans, saying, “Regardless of your past sins, you have a chance to live again by the blood of Jesus.”
Born of royal blood in Bamenda, Cameroon on the west coast of Central Africa, Philia Dens has been singing since the age of four. Her mother would take her to hospitals to sing to newborn babies. At 14, she began writing music, original songs which were incorporated as hymns in churches and schools. Following high school, Dens moved to the USA to follow her musical passion. She has opened for mainstream acts such as Petit Pays and performs regularly at churches, weddings, graduations, and more. She is renowned for her humanist principles in music.
“Before I write a song, I think of its impact on the population and how they will relate to it,” Philia Dens writes. “My style is a fusion of gospel, inspirational, and soul. I sing to touch souls and impact people positively.”
“Give Me Hope” by Philia Dens is available online worldwide.
