Still recovering from that #epic Holy Ghost Party / #Sinach concert that rocked Tudor Hall Sunday night in Ottawa!! She came, she sang, she ministered, she conquered!! What the hundreds (felt like thousands, actually) of us who were there experienced was Praise-n-Worship on steroids, people! And it wasn’t just the superstar gospel artist who lit up that stage! We were blessed with performances by award-winning Congolese-Canadian gospel group Krystaal and several choirs from our local African churches! A huge thanks to Sinach, and her local partners (including several African congregations, CHRI 99.1FM, World Vision and the IPLF pastors) for bring so much joy and inspiration to our nation’s capital! There’s obviously an appetite for such events!! Look at the spectacular gospel shows we can have when we join forces?? Hopefully, other African gospel artists can be showcased like this in Ottawa in the near future!
P.S.: Let’s not forget the efforts of trailblazing Black gospel music promoters like Mark S. Gordon (Over a decade worth of amazing gospel shows on the Bluesfest World Gospel Jam stage PLUS the popular “In Da House” series) and Kathy TheGem Grant (Gospel conference) that helped create spaces to showcase gospel music talent….
