Ghodard Diavangama, Divisional Music Specialist
Ghodard Diavangama was born in the town of Boma in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Central Africa). He is the fifth of eight children who were all raised in The Salvation Army. Ghodard's parents were Salvation Army Officers who made sure that all of their children were involved in every program that the Army had to offer. Ghodard discovered his musical abilities at a very early age. As a young teenager, he began leading adult choirs and other musical groups. At the age of 17, he became the youngest member of a very popular Salvation Army male chorus called Crazy4Jesus. In 2000, the group moved to the United States. Ghodard met his wife, Gloria, in Raleigh, North Carolina and they were married in 2005. He served as the Raleigh Corps Songster leader and Junior Bandmaster for over 10 years and also began a recording business, serving as producer to several groups. In November 2017, Ghodard joined the Texas Divisional Music Department and currently serves as Music Specialist. Ghodard, Gloria, and their three children now live in Fort Worth, Texas. Ghodard has a passion for serving the Lord through music, and for finding new talents and helping them shine.
