As a worship minister, songwriting, composing, and music recording is an enjoyable and treasured experience. The privilege of living in two different cultures brings a unique texture to Lilian’s approach to worship and gospel music. She combines contemporary and African traditional styles in her worship leading experiences, which as a result ushers people of diverse backgrounds into God’s presence.

During the course of her life, Lilian has been inspired by the worship ministries of Yolanda Adams, Cece Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Hellen Baylor, and Hellen Akoth.

Along with her sisters Olivia Odera and Dorothy Roes, Dr. Lil enjoys making spiritual music that culminates into intimate worship experiences. Together the Odera sisters continue their dedication to celebrating the sovereignty of God through worship music.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
Psalm 95:6

Album Recordings

Lilian’s debut album Duto Mag Yesu was birthed through various life experiences that drew Lilian closer to God through worship. The album title, which is in her native Kenyan language Dholuo, is translated as “All to Jesus”. This music supersedes linguistic boundaries and is intended to bring people of all walks of life to a place of worship and celebration in God’s presence. The album has a distinct East African flavor and features songs in Dholuo, Swahili and Luganda.

Lilian’s second album “My Everything” is a product of intimate worship experiences with God. The album is a combination of prayerful conversations with God and celebration of God’s goodness and favor and features songs in Dholuo, Swahili and English. This project was produced by 12th Note Productions.
