Top gospel acts for The Experience
Gospel showcase, The Experience, will be held over two concerts this month.
Jamaica's gospel powerhouses take centre stage, first on Boxing Day at Manchester High School and then at the Spanish Town Prison Oval on December 30.
The shows are headlined by Glacia Robinson, who comes with a powerful testimony of divine healing after facing a mysterious illness for five years and literally coming back from the dead.
Produced by gospel music veteran GT Sound Limited, The Experience has upped the ante this year by teaming up with Glacia Robinson Ministries to stage two events in this its second year.
The Manchester Experience will be addressing both the physical and spiritual needs as part proceeds will benefit the Percy Junor Hospital's paediatric unit.
Spanish Town's citizens will experience a revival as the artistes minister in song.
Robinson said the decision to head to the Old Capital was largely influenced by the many challenges the community and its environs have been facing.
The Experience features top Jamaican performers and heading the list is Kevin Downswell. He has been known to take his audience on a spiritual high as he feeds them a steady diet of spiritually charged songs, which includes Close To You, If It's Not You, Already Done and You Make Me Stronger.
Fiery performer Prodigal Son can be expected to connect with songs such as I Wish, Can't Cool, Deeper Than Church, Heart Surgery and Bless Me Too Much.
Rondell Positive has been making an impact on the gospel circuit with his songs and power-packed performances.
He has made the connection time and time again with songs such as You've Been There, I'll Never Change, and Sticks Nor Stones, among others.
Noreta Lewis, who charmed the hearts of the Jamaica Gospel Festival Competition judges, copping the top prize in 2000 with I'll Make It Through The Valley, will find receptive hearts when she hits the stage.
Other acts billed for the show are Keesa Peart, Shawn Warren and The Anointed Musicians and singers.
The Boxing Day event will begin at 6 p.m. while the Spanish Town show is slated to kick off at 7:30 p.m.
Emcees will be Arnold Kelly and Basillia Barnaby-Cuffe.
