ClaudyGO'D - Singer and Songwriter
ClaudyGO'D AKA Claudette George-Okorie is American born but with Nigerian and Sierraleonian heritage. She has been a lover of Jesus since 1996 and has always been very enthusiastic about music. Claudette rededicated her life to the course of Jesus Christ in 2000. This was right after graduation from the University of Benin in Nigeria. She has followed God very passionately ever since then. During a session of fellowship with God in Nashville USA in 2003, Claudette heard God say to her “I love your worship.” This she preciously kept in her heart and she also logged these remarkable words in her diary at the time. She would often hear these repeated during times of praise and worship to God but wasn’t absolutely certain of its full implication.
Claudette felt called to ministry right around 2013 and as a result relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA) within the same year with the intent to attend a Christian college. This was to help her prepare for ministry. As God would have it she attended the School of Worship of Victory Bible Institute, a bible college affiliated with Victory Christian Center which she had joined at the time. Claudette continued to walk closely with the Lord and served in several different capacities in the church including the worship team, home cell groups, children's ministry, and choir.
Several years later in January of 2018, while living in California, Claudette was divinely motivated to write songs and she put together her album “Lord of My Heart.” This inspiration came right after a special time of seeking God’s direction for herself for the new year and for her life. Claudette has always known she has a great purpose and that her purpose is wrapped around loving others. Through these God-inspired songs, she wants to share God’s love to a lost world.
Claudette’s songs come in pop, hip-hop, R&B, folk and holiday styles of music, all to tell of her appreciation of God’s passionate affection for her and the amazing things He has done in her life. Each of Claudette’s song has its own unique message -
“Good-Good God” praises God for His goodness in her life and her thankfulness to Him loving her more than she ever possibly can love Him.
“Your presence” conveys the message that our life is wrapped around God and that we would be nothing if not for His grace and love.
“Nothing like” sings about how God is unique to us in several different ways. She sums it up by saying there’s no one like Him in the entire world.
“Wow God” speaks about how Claudette is amazed at God. God had shown up for her when she had given up and totally turned what seemed like an impossible situation around.
“Show forth” is about wanting to be an exhibit for God after everything He has done to give her a new life and another chance.
She closes out this extended play album with - “Lord of my heart" coined from Psalm 139 and inspired by a ministration of TV Evangelist Marilyn Hickey. She describes this song as her love song to God and His love song to her. The song speaks about how God knew her from her mother’s womb and how she can never get away from His amazing love. Claudette has chosen to surrender willingly to the “Lord of her heart”.
Christmas Single- "Father Christmas"
Inspired by the mighty works of God, His amazing miracles, God's abundant kindness, and His lavishness of love that I have been privileged to observe demonstrated through Pastor Alph Lukau (South Africa), Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin (Nigeria) and a couple of other humble men of God. This realization came to mind just a couple of weeks to Christmas and I thought Jesus is truly the real Father Christmas! I have also seen so much of God's goodness in my life even when I haven't felt like I deserved. I heard the Lord say, "take out some time and sit with me and I'll give you a song about me for Christmas, how I would like it". Jesus is indeed the true Father Christmas!
As Claudette reviews the words "I love your worship" in that long kept diary, she is in awe of God's faithfulness.
Claudette has since released two other singles including "It's a new day" (a music video) and "Nwata Nna" (a Nigerian folk song), both premiered in 2019.
