In a world filled with distractions and challenges, where hope can be hard to find, there are young people whose voices and melodies become vessels of solace and inspiration. One such young person is Hamson Wasi, from the tranquil artificial islands of northern Malaita, known as Funafou, Niuleni, and Foueda. His journey into religious music, combined with the creation of the Young Faith, is a testament to the transformative power of faith and song.

Hamson’s odyssey began as a 12-year-old boy when he discovered his enchanting voice within the sacred walls of the church. It was there, during Pathfinder programs, that he unearthed a profound talent for singing—a talent that would go on to shape his life’s purpose.

What inspires Hamson to sing religious songs is the profound impact they have on people’s lives. The harmonious blend of melody and divine messages provides solace, comfort, and a beacon of hope to those who listen. For him, singing isn’t just a passion; it’s a potent tool for spreading the message of God’s love and grace.

The inception of “Young Faith” was Hamson’s brainchild. This ensemble of voices was created to bolster the Church’s youth, to inspire and nurture their faith. The name, “Young Faith,” symbolizes the journey of faith—starting young with life’s countless distractions and growing into a mature and unwavering commitment to God.

Along this path, there have been numerous milestones. Financial constraints posed challenges, especially when they were invited to sing or officiate Sabbath programs but lacked transportation. The dream of recording songs and creating videos also faced financial hurdles. Yet, through it all, they found solace in the belief that these endeavours were for God’s glory.

Gospel music has been Hamson’s spiritual compass, guiding him through life’s trials. He acknowledges that the journey of faith is not without its ups and downs, and it is through these experiences that he finds inspiration to craft songs of God’s saving grace and unwavering love.

Hamson’s songs are anchored in themes of love, grace, and the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He draws inspiration from the experiences of young people today, reflecting their struggles with drifting away from God. The central message of his songs, however, always emphasizes that God’s love endures despite human imperfections.

The impact of Hamson’s music is profound, not only among the youth but also transcending geographical boundaries. Young people, both locally and abroad, have been inspired to form singing groups in churches. The songs sung and written by Hamson and Young Faith have touched the lives of many.

One particularly moving story comes from a friend in Hawaii who had grappled with alcoholism and drug addiction. In the depths of despair, he stumbled upon one of Hamson’s songs. The lyrics mirrored his own life’s journey, and that moment became the catalyst for his return to faith and a healthier lifestyle.

Hamson has not been immune to challenges. The temptation to delve into secular music has been a persistent struggle. Additionally, witnessing some of their group members face spiritual weaknesses and backsliding has posed its own set of challenges.

However, Hamson takes pride in their accomplishments. Last year, they celebrated the launch of their fifth album—a testament to their unwavering commitment to spreading God’s message through music.

Hamson and Young Faith have their eyes set on the future. They plan to record more songs and create videos, which they’ll share freely on social media platforms, continuing their mission of spreading love and hope through their music.

“I aspire to be a role model for the younger generation in Gospel music, promoting it for the present and future generations. Above all, I am committed to living a life that reflects the image of Jesus.”

In today’s digital age, platforms like YouTube have played a pivotal role in amplifying their music. It has helped their melodies reach the far corners of the world, touching and transforming lives.

Currently, Hamson is in Australia, and he continues to share his musical gifts in churches and through his online presence on platforms like Facebook. His music transcends borders and serves as a source of inspiration for those in distant lands.

“Sing for Jesus, for there is no other name but Jesus Christ that can make a positive impact or change in one’s life or even an entire nation.”

In a world filled with turmoil and uncertainty, Hamson’s musical journey stands as a beacon of unwavering faith and an ode to the transformative power of religious music. Through his songs, he continues to inspire, comfort, and ignite the flames of faith in the hearts of many.
