I witnessed a celebration concert dubbed Youthful Praise, which was held at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. The program was organised by a music ministry called David’s Incorporated. And the venue for attraction was the Calvary Charismatic Centre (C.C.C) Sunyani auditorium.
The program was scheduled to kick-start at 5pm. And i arrived at the auditorium around 5:15pm, and i was ushered to my seat. Thirty minutes passed my arrival and technicians on board were still testing their equipments, plus low turn out of audience as at that time. Meanwhile, the program was suppose to start at 5pm. oh no!!! But that’s a typical Ghanaian character/sickness in the pastors should help to pray against that, it does happen in almost all Ghanaian events/programs.
INTERACTION WITH OTHERS
DONALD told me he came around 4pm and may be he will not stay for the program to end.
MR. DENNIS said, he doesn’t understand the delays, but let’s wait and see what the good Lord will do.
6:20pm~ The singers warmed us up by giving praises unto the most the most high. They started with Bishop Paul S. Morton’s “let it rain”. Wow nice piece and powerful song they ministered there, and indeed the man above let it rained because with a twinkle of an eye the auditorium was filled to capacity.
Lovely reader, I really enjoyed the night despite the late start up of the Gospel Praise Concert. I wish you were there to see how i was shaking my body and my long legs…..lol….
And the lady who led the singing group around 6:20 to 6:50pm, sang like an angel, I wish i can say she’s the best gospel singer i’ve come across in Ghana. I thought i was listening to Cece Winans. Infact they got talents.
At some point, It was obvious that most of the audience were not familiar with some of the foreign gospel songs. So the lead singer ask if they should switch to local songs and the audience shouted, yes!!!
So we started doing the local thing, yeah local praises of course. I wish you were there to see how we dance and sang along.
There were a lot of invited guests and dignitaries who made the program a success. It was a night full of blessings and a night to remember. It was the 4th edition praise concert by David’s Inc.
Mr. Fortune Nii Adotey is the president of the group and he told the News Hunter Magazine that, He do agree that there was some short comings, but that’s their first time of encountering such hitches. He said, “it was great in a look comparing to the previous ones”.
