Born Gabriel Tembo, Gabriel Light is a Zambian music artist who was born and raised in Chipata and Lusaka. His stage name was taken from a scripture in the bible. He grew up in a place where music had much influence thus prompting his passion for music. His interest became visible when he began singing in church at the age of 18. His involvement in Praise and Worship teams was ignited by popular artists such as Don Moen, Michael W Smith and Ron Kenoly. Shortly afterwards, he began recording music.
His music is more spiritual, good examples are songs such as ‘Holy Spirit’, ‘I Don't Understand’ and ‘I Will Be The Light’. Light later decided to go commercial with his music.
