SEEING there is a lot of animosity between some city gospel artists, gospel singer and a member of Avodah female group Nondu Radebe has started a project aimed at encouraging unity among gospel artists.

The project, known as the PMB Worship Circle, aims to unite artists through music, workshops and seminars.

Radebe said the workshops will be held every last Monday of the month starting on 28 September at Project Gateway from 6pm.

“After seeing there was a lot of bad blood between some of the city’s gospel artists, I had a vision of doing something. As gospel artists we are supposed to be preaching and singing the word of God, nothing else.

“I have noticed that nowadays there is no difference in the behaviour of gospel artists and artists singing other genres. I want to revive humanity and the word of God. There will be various workshops and praise and worship seminars. We also want to encourage gospel artists to write meaningful songs that relate to the word of God.” Radebe said the intention is not to establish a choir or a particular gospel group, but to equip gospel artists with knowledge so they can make meaningful contributions in their church.

“It is more about mingling and getting to know each other and to also groom each other on how we should carry ourselves. We will have revival workshops where we will encourage artists to preach the word of God through music.”

The seminars, which are free, are open to churches and anyone interested in gospel music
