Singer & Songwriter, HLE Bags Huge Record Deal With Motown Gospel

Renowned star, Hlengiwe Ntombela, also popularly known as HLE, has inked a record deal with American-based recording company, Motown Gospel.

The giant label based in Nashville broke the big news last night. Signing with Motown only means the singer can and will now reach a global audience and market, further pushing both her music and her brand to new horizons of a wider reach.

The announcement follows a whirlwind season of success for HLE which includes her debut album, ‘Your Kingdom on Earth’, that went on to snatch the number one position on Apple Music’s Albums chart in seven whole countries! The LP did not stop its exploits there. It was so good it won the best Contemporary Faith at the South African Music Award (SAMA) last year.

Motown Gospel, a division of Capitol CMG and Universal Music Group, has under their large umbrella stars like Kelly Price, Merry Clayton and Tasha Cobbs Leonard.

“Motown /Capitol CMG is a true giant of the industry, known for cultivating some of the world’s greatest artists. I’m excited to become one of them as my music is taken across the globe,” Ntombela said.

The 30-year-old musician, a product of ‘Joyous Celebration’, comes from Newcastle in KwaZulu-Natal.
