EASTERN MIRROR: Birth of ‘Dream Magnificent’ in few lines.
Dream Magnificent (DM): Dream Magnificent was formed on July 22 2017. It was a sudden move where we had a particular program at our school i.e (Boy’s Creativity Night) at School Of Music Dimapur. After then we came to recognise that each of us had the same mindset/vision to spread the gospel through our songs, so we decided to strongly work on our profession till the end never-the-less believing God has a purpose in bringing us together as one.
EASTERN MIRROR: Most memorable and most embarrassing performances of the band since its formation.

EASTERN MIRROR: Any set/fixed vision towards spreading the gospel through your songs?

EASTERN MIRROR: Who writes the lyrics in the band? What do the lyrics usually deal with?
DM: As a band all of us come together and manage to make up our lyrics. Our lyrics usually relay on the situations. However, we tend to go more for the youths of today’s generation and people who are lost with no hope (lost in soul). So, with the high hope that after listening to our lyrics atleast some get hope and become better men.

EASTERN MIRROR: What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge?
DM: Well we faced so many challenges especially when we are to do something great for God. We also get discouraged on so many things but all these problems never stop us from what we aim to do. With the hope that God’s presence is with us and believing that it will make us better in the future.
