Sister Ivonne, the Chilean guitarist and lyricist of the band, says Siervas is their way to communicate their message of love, joy, and hope to wider sets of audiences. “This [band] is another form of bringing our evangelical message, showing our strength — that’s to say, it’s also music that we like, it shows a lot about who we are,” she said in an interview.

 

Siervas is an 11-member band that usually performs in Spanish language. Their music video, “Confía en Dios” (Trust in God), which shows the band performing in a helipad atop a building, garnered almost two million views in Youtube alone.
