The last few weeks have 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 December 1.
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 would be featured alongside the two phenomenal African gospel stalwarts.
Earlier this week, organizers finally released the list of confirmed local gospel acts and it is the crème de la crème of gospel music superstars on the local circuit.
Those billed to perform at the Let the Peace Rain concert include Ghana’s finest female gospel superstar, Ohemaa Mercy, Ghanaian gospel’s most hip and funky act, Cwesi Oteng and DSP Kofi Sarpong, who will surely bring to bear one of his most spirited performances till date.
Earlier this year, gospel songstress Ohemaa Mercy, known for smash hits such as Menwu Da, Adamfo pa and Obeye Ama Wo, staged her hugely successful Tehilla Experience concert which featured Sonnie Badu as a producer.
Cwesi 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. 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 one that will live up to expectations.
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, LGG, Dalex Finance, Access Bank and Fidelity Bank.
It is powered by Empire Entertainment and Media GH under the auspices of The Telecom Channel and the Hour of Hope Trust.
