The last few weeks has witnessed growing buzz and anticipation for this year’s biggest gospel concert set to take place at the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre on the 1st December, 2012.
With South African gospel legend, Lionel Petersen confirmed to perform alongside the enigmatic Sonnie Badu; most gospel music lovers were beginning wonder which Ghanaian gospel acts will be featured alongside the two phenomenal African gospel stalwarts.
Earlier this week, organizers, finally released the list of confirmed local gospel music acts to rock the stage next month and it reads like an assembly of the crème de la crème of gospel music superstars on the local circuit.
Billed to perform at the “Let the Peace Rain” concert, include, Ghana’s finest female gospel superstar, Ohemaa Mercy performing thought provoking and spiritually gratifying hits such as “Menwu Da” “Adamfo pa” and “Obeye ama wo”; Ghanaian gospel’s most hip and funky act, Cwasi Oteng will also be thrilling music lovers with “God dey Bless” whiles the ever colorful and energetic, DSP Kofi Sarpong is sure to bring to bear one of his most spirited performances till date.
Incidentally, it’s been a remarkable year for all the local acts billed to “let the peace rain” on December 1st. Earlier this year, gospel songstress, Ohemaa Mercy staged her hugely successful, “Tehilla Experience” concert which featured Sonnie Badu as one of the producers for the event. Cwasi Oteng, also staged a remarkable concert last month, and his hit song “God Dey Bless” is perhaps the biggest cross-over gospel song of the year.
DSP Kofi Sarpong has also had a phenomenal year with chalking great success in the Police service and on the gospel music circuit. It is therefore expected that, their performances on the night will be a culmination of all of their very best performances throughout a truly exceptional year for all of them.
With the addition of the industry’s biggest acts to the concert, organizers have upped the ante on an event which is already being billed by industry pundits as the biggest gospel concert of the year.
Tickets for the concert are available for GHC40 regular and GHC70 for VIP tickets. The Sonnie Badu “Let Peace Rain” Concert is sponsored by Atlantic Trust, a dubai-based Ghanaian owned investment and finance company and supported by LGG, Dalex Finanace, Access Bank and Fidelity Bank.
