Fans in for a treat

2017-11-01 06:00

The internationally acclaimed group Joyous Celebration will enthrall gospel fans with their sweet melodies on Saturday, 18 November.

Gospel fanatics can look forward to songs from their 21st album, Heal Our Land, a spectacular production that has taken South African gospel by storm.

The Kimberley perfor­mance, scheduled to be held at the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre, is part of Joyous Celebration’s annual national tour.

This latest album is applauded for having a spiritual and prayerful flavour, encapsulating the realms of life and reflecting on the social well-being of many communities.

The project initiator of the concert, Zikie Molusi, says that this year’s theme resonates well with the current widespread appeal to all members of the community to join hands and take action in addressing a myriad of societal issues.

“In cognisance of the role of the church in the modern world, gospel music has become interwoven with the struggle of the people.

“The church offers strength and hope amidst the biggest terrors of suffering.

“That is why people are yearning for hope, faith and solidarity,” says Molusi.

The project could end up playing a big role in promo­ting the development of local artists.

“That is purely due to the blooming music career achieved by the likes of Galeshewe-born songstress Puleng March, who gives hope that there is definitely an opportunity for many other talented artists to follow in her footsteps,” added the co-founder of the group, Jabu Hlongwane.

Sharing the stage on the night will be Northern Cape talents like Mkhululi Jacobs from De Aar and WO Karen van Staden of the SAPS.

Van Staden’s melodic voice is fast becoming a household name thanks to her performances in an SAPS band.

Spiritual Sweet Sensation is a multi-talented local clap and tap group that enjoys phenomenal support among locals, with all the voices drawn from widespread talent and voices in Galeshewe.

Completing the list of the supporting acts will also be the Sol Plaatje Municipality choir, which is made up of music lovers that endeavour to use their vocal talents as a tool to entertain the public.

Molusi promises a concert as good as in previous years, for which the team will endeavour to put their best foot forward to ensure that the audience will again be left smiling.

Partner Zikmo Productions will be giving away tickets to five lucky readers while tickets are on sale.
