For more than 20 years of dedicated life of inspiring gospel music lovers in Ghana and across the world, the sensational group Daughters of Glorious Jesus, have bounced back with a new concept to draw souls closer to God.
With ten albums and over 100 songs to their credit, the management of Daughters of Glorious Jesus on Tuesday launched “Back2Back 2013” aims at creating a platform for gospel music fans to enjoy thrilling soul-touching performances from the three sisters and many popular gospel artistes.
“The Back2Back concept, which we started from the beginning of this year with our first show on Sunday January 1st, has come to stay. Today we are launching the Back2Back 2013, which will be staged live on January 6, 2013,” Mr. Theophilus Yartey, a management member of the group told the media at the launch.
Beginning their individual music careers in the early 1980s, Mr. Yartey said, they became Daughters of Glorious Jesus in 1989, when one Reverend Akwasi Asare, saw the great talent and potential in them and gave them all the needed support.
Through the exceptional support of the Rev Asare, Daughters of Jesus recorded their first album in Europe in 1990. “Daughters of Glorious Jesus have sung in every major church programme and major churches in Ghana you can think of. We are proud and happy how God has used them to touch lives not only in Ghana but across the world,” Mr. Yartey said.
Launching the Back2Back concert, Mr. Samuel Attah-Mensah, Managing Director of Citi FM, a private local FM station, also traced the beginning of the gospel hit makers and urged them to tell their success story of staying together all these years by publishing a book.
Other gospel popular artistes on the bill for the Back2Back concert are Pastor Joe Beechem, Helen Yawson, the Tagoe Sisters and latest hit maker, Cwesi Oteng.
The concert, which will be staged a day before the swearing-in of Ghana’s next President on the January 7th, promises to thrill thousands of fans, including political party leaders and supporters.
The three daughters, Cynthia, Edna and Monica, who have promised to rock the Accra International Conference Centre once again, hinted at the launch that they would come out with another album next year.
