“In 1945, a man by name Habte-Ab Wolde Mariam was given the mandate to train the young people in music and singing. This was the beginning of choir ministry [at Addis Ababa Mekane Yesus congregation]. A committee which oversees music ministry was formed, to strengthen and expand of music ministry.
The committee went public and presented different songs at the then Haile Selassie I Theatre and even to the palace of the Emperor for which “the [p. 44] Emperor presented to the choir a financial gift of about thirty thousand Birr.” [Source: Enaat Mekane Yesus 100th anniversary of Evangelistic Work (1904-2004, p. 44] The music committee has been directing different choirs (group of singers) formed in the congregation and presenting a yearly festival since its commencement.”
