Benestelle is a Gospel and Contemporary Christian singer, songwriter and composer who recently launched a successful solo singing career. The move was the next natural step for an artist who has enjoyed a lifetime of music and worship. Originally from West Africa, Benestelle is now a Canadian citizen.

In March of 2020 the singer made her solo debut with the release of the moving “Love of My Life.” An emotional love ballad to God, the song finds the virtuosic singer alternating between Gospel soul and Operatic power over an ambient bed of strings and a lush mix of electronic and organic instrumentation. The song and video close with Benestelle and her backup singers joyfully declaring “I Love You” in multiple languages.
The singer followed the success of her debut with “For Me,” a quiet tale of her personal relationship with Jesus.

Benestelle closed out 2020 with the international Gospel hit “We Give You.” With a contemporary Pop production, the joyful celebration of God’s omnipresence connected with radio and television audiences worldwide.
