An e-mail, written by chance by Cliff Pillay on behalf of Pietermaritzburg (PMB) youth group Converge, has reaped humungous rewards.

Their invitation to host Christian super group Planetshakers, sent in the email, was accepted, resulting in the band visiting Pietermaritzburg for the first time in its history.

Converge is a youth group that seeks to encourage young people to improve their lives, inspire, motivate and empower them through powerful ministry.

Converge leader Pillay said that Planetshakers embodied and personified through their music,the same values that Converge stood for and that when he saw on his social media account that they were doing a tour across the world, he instantly sent the band manager a message requesting them to tour Pietermaritzburg.

“I told them we always have to go out of the area to see major concerts and that we would like to host them for one night of worship for the people of Maritzburg,” said Pillay.

Planetshakers are a globally acclaimed Christian group known for songs like The Anthem and Nothing is Impossible and are currently on their worldwide tour, called The Legacy Tour.

Pillay said that he was very excited once they agreed to his request, stating that he wanted this to be a legacy church night.

“We are currently selling tickets and raising funds in any way we can to host them,” he said.

The event, which takes place on July 18, will host up to 10 000 spectators with tickets ranging from R150 to R250.

Tickets can be bought from the Bible Centre in Cascades Lifestyle Centre, Long Market Street and Kingsway in Raisethorpe.

Those wanting to stay away from queues can buy their tickets online from Stumbler.co.za

“We are very excited and hope to see representatives from every church attend as well as anyone else who are fans of the band on the day,” said Pillay.
