LISTEN: HLE Debuts “You’re The Worthy One”
South African singer-songwriter, HLE makes her U.S. debut with the new single “You’re The Worthy One,” accompanied by a performance video. This marks HLE’s debut offering with Motown Gospel/Capitol CMG, introducing her to the U.S. gospel marketplace.
“You’re The Worthy One” is a moving worship ballad that glorifies and extols God as the Worthy One. “There’s no one higher than You, You alone are the Worthy One,” affirms HLE.
The new single is available today to download/stream on digital platforms. Click here.
A pastor’s daughter born in Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal, in 1991, singer Hlengiwe Ntombela—better known as Hle—has brought glamorous soul power to South Africa’s contemporary-gospel scene since joining Joyous Celebration in 2016. HLE began her career as a backing vocalist for Ntokozo Mbambo, and has collaborated with Hlengiwe Mhlaba and gospel giant Benjamin Dube.
But it’s her 2020 solo debut, Your Kingdom on Earth, recorded with the award-winning producer Siyanqoba Mthethwa, that established Hle as ruler of her own musical dominion. Funky, soulful, and majestic tracks like iTunes chart-topper “Dwala,” “Living Hope,” and “You Are” (a colorful series of encomiums to Jesus) ascend from simmering foundations to ecstatic climaxes. That same year, she also launched her intimate Heart of Worship Project on YouTube, while carving out time to host the One Gospel channel TV shows Adlib and VIP Invite.
