Vivian has served as vocalist and worship leader in various choirs in the United States and Nigeria - Jesus House Music Ministry (since 2013), the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir (2010-2012), Family Worship Center (2006-2010), the Laz Ekwueme Chorale (2004-2005), Church of the Divine Mercy (2003-2006), Vivian Fowler College Choir (1995-2000). She played the role of Mary Magdalene in a local rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar (2005, 2006), and was cast as the wailer in the biblical musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (2004).
Vivian just released her debut album, All Yours, and is humbled by the response she has received from the album. "All Yours is an album about complete surrender, especially when surrender is extremely difficult. Each song represents a journey for me. My Glory My Joy is about trusting God no matter the pain He takes me through. Salvation Prayer is a song about just that, the sinners’ prayer we confess when we surrender our lives to Christ. Beloved’s Wait is a song about choosing purpose over pleasure. It’s a very daring song for me, and my most vulnerable of all because it was inspired by the struggles of being single and choosing to obey God’s plan despite what I feel."
Vivian has a Master's degree in International Development, and works full time in Business Development. She is passionate about connecting people with God's love through worship.

“Ms Mary Magdalene (Anugo Vivian)... the director looks beyond the dress to the voice... [Vivian]'s voice not only adds intensity and sensuality to the Magdalene role, it brings grace and first class vocal prowess to her anthem, I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”
THANK YOU :)
All Yours is possible because God made it possible, and because of outstanding women and men who took a chance on me. All Yours, the album was mastered and produced by a duo of outstanding producers, Bare Recording. Photographs were taken by Yacouba Tanou. Vivian's photoshoot was styled by O&I Fashions, and makeup was beautifully crafted by Salewa Ojo.
