VEREENIGING- The Civic Theatre Hall turned into a slice of heaven for a couple of hours on Saturday following a Gospel show that was hosted by Patshi Event Management and Entertainment. It was a praise and worship festival and each and every artist that set foot on stage found a way to up-lift the spirits of those who came to worship the name of the Lord.
They offered their best and credited their audience with heavenly song. The list of performers included the likes of Sgwili and Babo from Kwa-Zulu Natal who were 2010ΓÇÖs best Gospel new comers and our very own Israel Mosehle who won the award for best worship album.
These great worshipers shared the stage with Lebo Sekgobela, Bros of Peace GG, Zaza, Sharon Dee, Abanqobi, Thabiso, Gauta and others. These gospel artists had the same vision for the event: to praise God for what He has done in their lives.
Thabang Mnisi from Patshi Entertainment says the show exceeded all expectations and the turn up was incomparable. ΓÇ£We are aiming to revive the Vaal again! Gospel music in the Vaal was slowly fading, but it is up to us to make sure that the light in our hearts keeps shining through our music.
We have great artists coming from the Vaal, who are making waves outside their perimeters. This means there are countless talented artists in the Vaal, who need to be exposed and appreciated. Our region has what it takes to produce great gospel musicians,ΓÇ¥ says Mnisi.
The performance reached its climax when Babo no Sgwili ascended the stage. They were supposed to wrap up the proceedings with great traditional Zulu gospel songs, but then Mosehle had the audience on their feet with worship that finally reflected the vision of the day.
