Win tickets to see Joyous Celebration

2017-05-18 06:00

City Vision and MTN Joyous Celebration are giving away three double tickets and other goodies to gospel lovers for the Heal the Nation concert on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June at the Good Hope Christian Church in Ottery.

Launched during Easter, the Heal The Nation concert was hailed as a vintage Joyous Celebration offering as it calls on people across the globe to pray for healing.

In December 2016, MTN Joyous Celebration joined hands and hearts with The Potter’s House of Dallas in the USA, under the leadership of Bishop T.D. Jakes, for a memorable and unprecedented recording. This event has given birth to the ensembles’ 21st album, aptly themed “Heal our Land” and comes at a time when our nation and the world at large needs much healing.

According to co-founder, Pastor Jabu Hlongwane, the recording and the much-anticipated album is a seed that Joyous Celebration jointly and prayerfully planted together with The Potter’s House.

“May it germinate. May it reach every heart across the globe and bear fruits that will bring healing to our land,” he says.

“We ask everyone to join us to pray for the healing we so desperately need.”

“We are celebrating our 21st anniversary, and there is a lot to be excited about on this year’s tour because we are coming of age.

The response we encountered in the USA during the recording and the support, prayers and well wishes from people here at home and across the globe was phenomenal.

For this, we are truly humbled and believe that not only will the world receive our latest offering with enthusiasm, but will also strongly relate and resonate with the “Heal our Land” message”, says co-founder, conductor and producer, Lindelani Mkhize.

“We have come a long way with MTN Joyous Celebration and are proud to be associated with this award-winning ensemble as they come of age with their 21st offering to their multitudes of fans. We have no doubt that this will be the biggest tour in the group’s history and we hope everyone will join hands and spread the “Heal our Land” message that MTN Joyous Celebration will be sharing with communities” said Larry Annetts, Chief Consumer Officer at MTN SA.

Keeping up with their tradition and passion of nurturing, developing and introducing fresh talent, the production also welcomes “newbies” Siyakha Tshayela (Alto), Khaya Sibanyoni and Gospel Silinda (Tenors), Frank Mavhimara (Guitar), Junior Petja (Keyboard), Khola Phalatse (Bass Guitar) and an additional three extremely talented and gifted members to their brass section.
