Prioritizing God Above All: Victory Boyd’s Message of Eternal Purpose
Welcome to another episode of Da Fixx. In this episode. We had the pleasure of discussing the power of prayer, the role of women in prayer, and the importance of faith. We were also thrilled to introduce our special guest, Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and musician, Victory Boyd.
The Power of Prayer and Women’s Role
In our conversation, we emphasized the need for clarity in hearing God’s voice and the importance of being connected to Him through prayer. We acknowledged the strong prayer warriors, particularly women, who pray for their families, children, and communities. We expressed our admiration for these praying women and highlighted the significance of being evenly yoked in prayer within relationships.
Introducing Victory Boyd
We then introduced our special guest, Victory Boyd, expressing our excitement about her unique sound and her ability to break the traditional boundaries of gospel music. We mentioned her performance at the Stellar Awards and her new album, “Glory Hour.” We welcomed Victory and expressed our gratitude for her presence on the show, commending her for her talent and the way she presents gospel music in a raw and live performance style.
Victory Boyd’s Faith Journey
Victory shared her journey of faith and how she got into music. Born into a Christian family, her name ‘Victory’ had a significant impact on her upbringing. However, she had to have her own personal encounters with Christ to develop her own faith and conviction. She spoke about a traumatic accident at the age of 18, which led her to realize her need for a Savior and encounter Christ in a tangible way. From that point on, she made it her mission to become the best artist she could be, using her music to glorify The Most High and share the message of Christ.
Victory’s Musical Upbringing and Influence
Victory also discussed her musical upbringing, coming from a family of musicians. Her father, a jazz musician, would lead their family in singing and harmonizing at the dinner table. Growing up in Detroit, she was surrounded by a rich musical culture, including gospel and Motown legends. Moving to New York, she and her family took their music to the streets, performing in various places.
The Impact of Jay-Z and Kanye West on Victory’s Music
Victory shared how Jay-Z encouraged her to embrace her talent as a poet, leading her to incorporate spoken word poetry into her songs. She also discussed her latest project, “Glory,” a faith-based album aiming to help people connect with the Holy Spirit. The conversation then shifted to Victory’s connection with Kanye West, whom she met at Sunday Service and was inspired by the genuine worship and love for The Lord that she witnessed.
Prioritizing God Above All
Victory emphasized the importance of prioritizing God above fame, money, and popularity. She believes that if you’re going to put in the effort and work, it should be for a cause that will count eternally. She encourages listeners to have a relationship with God and make decisions from a place of being seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
