Joe Mettle, Ohemaa Mercy, others headline Apostolic Praise 2016

6 years and still running and it gets better year after year. It's the concert that leaves an indelible memory in the minds of all and sundry; an event that will once again take praises and worship to a whole different pedestal on December 30, 2016, at the Ghana forecourt of the Ghana International Trade Centre. You may be wondering what concert this is? Well, it's the Apostolic Praise.

An event hosted by Christ Apostolic International and the Apostolic Praise Choir, Apostolic Praise started in the auditorium of the headquarters of the Christ Apostolic Church International.

Within a few years, the huge and increasing representation at each concert necessitated a bigger auditorium hence the acquisition of the Accra International Conference Centre to make room for the larger audience.

The stages of Apostolic Praise has been graced by virtually all the top artistes in this country. From the likes Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Soul winners, Selina Boateng, Cece Twum, Joe Mettle, koda; just to mention but a few.

Two years ago, Benjamin Dube from South Africa, did us the honour by performing at the concert. It was an experience of a lifetime.

This year, the concert features the "Owanwani" hitmaker, Joe Mettle; the "Wobe ye kese" showstopper, Ohemaa Mercy; and a host of other gospel musicians on the bill, you'd bet a drop of hits after hits - from old school to new school gospel music.

The Accra West territorial Mass Choir and the Accra East territorial Mass Choir of Christ Apostolic Church International shall also take you higher in praise and the ever dazzling hosts Apostolic Praise Choir shall certainly make you savour the moment.

It's happening live on December 30, 2016 at 4pm sharp, at the forecourt of the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre. There can't be any better way to end 2016 in gratitude, and begin 2017 in blessings and overflowing joy.

Neither can there be any better way to celebrate the goodness and faithfulness of God for a peaceful elections.

The beauty of Apostolic Praise is not only in its power of bringing together people from far and near closer to God in songs and ministration, but also in its ultimate goal - to raise money to help kids with cancer. ".....suffer the little children and forbid them not to come unto me, for such is the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:14).

This powerful statement made by Jesus to His disciples has been a major driving force these past years to the Apostolic Praise team in contributing it's quota to the welfare and health of these little ones living with cancer.

Hence, the proceeds generated from this concert is donated to the hospital to defray the cost of catering for kids with such conditions.
