This is a follow on from her debut single ‘Steal My Joy’, which was a huge success late 2015, charting at Number 2 in the UK StepFWD Christian Charts in December 2015
Following the launch of her album, Sarah has kept up the momentum, recently selling out London's Hard Rock Cafe at her headline gig 'An Evening With Sarah Téibo' on the 18th of January 2017. The year prior also saw her sing along side Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Charles Jenkins, headline her own concert with American Gospel artist Lisa McClendon and perform at one of UK’s largest Christian festivals – Creation Fest.
The second of four children, Sarah was born in London, England but also had the privilege of growing up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten. It was from this early age that it became evident that she was one to be heard and watched.
Her love for music was highly influenced by her parents’ taste in music and their rich vinyl collection which featured amongst others, Soul and R&B legends like Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. She grew up listening to these phenomenal artistes and recalls memories of singing along to Marvin Gaye with her mom.
Through tumultuous experiences in her early teenage years where her family was faced with eviction and homelessness, Sarah learnt the importance of faith in God and started writing music to express both her fears and her faith. These proved a great source of strength through the most trying of times.
In her 11-track album which ranges from soulful, infectious numbers such as ‘New Day’ and ‘Special’ to bouncing up-tempo tunes like ‘I Will Sing!’ and deeply inspiring tracks like ‘Keep The Faith’, Sarah fuses her uniquely soulful yet contemporary style and powerful lyrics to produce a new and exciting sound which some music critics have described as ‘fresh, urban yet classic’.
‘Walk With Me’ is now available for purchase on http://www.sarahteibo.co.uk and for digital download from all major online music stores.
