Rose Muhando is a Tanzanian gospel singer and songwriter. She was born and raised in Kilosa, Morogoro region of Tanzania. She was born a Muslim and converted to Christianity after she claimed she saw a vision from Jesus Christ while she suffered on her sickbed for three long years.

In a what she described as a mysterious illness, Rose spoke about gave more details quote below: -

“People think that I have a good, smooth life; totally wrong. My life has been plagued by misfortunes from youth. Soon, this routine changed. A mysterious disease that left me bedridden for three years attacked me. My skin was peeling, and I had a gushing wound in my head that oozed smelly pus. My parents also took me to witch doctors, but no luck there. Finally, they took me home and I lay on a bed awaiting my death. But one night, remembers Muhando, as her parents sat outside their grass­ thatched house, probably reflecting on their fate, a bright light engulfed their house. I saw a bright light. Then a hand clad in white, with a scar in the palm descended from the light and touched my wound. Then a soft voice, exuding authority said, “I am Jesus. I have healed you. Wake up and go serve me.” The light disappeared. Muhando says she ran to her parents shouting, “I am healed, I am healed”. They were astounded. For three years, I had not lifted myself from the bed.”

Just like many gospel singers, Rose started her career in the choir where she served as a teacher in the St Mary’s Choir of the Chimuli Anglican Church in Dodoma. She was reportedly sacked from the choir after her refusal to record music with them. She then started recording her own songs in 2004 and released her first single “Mteule Uwe Macho” the same year.
