Lady Saw to perform at White House
Dancehall artiste Lady Saw will be performing at the White House on June 24. According to the icon, who recently converted to Christianity, the opportunity was presented by God.
"It not all about me, it's all about God and I feel honoured to be an ambassador for Christ. I have to give him all the glory and honour," Saw told The STAR.
The recording artiste, who now performs under the name Marion Hall, was known for her hardcore delivery and strong stage presence. But that has changed with her conversion to Christianity.
"Sometimes I don't know what to expect. God has a way of just doing things direct on his time, not my time. A lot of times I will go out to minister and God let me do something else. But Whatever God does it going to be something awesome and wonderful because I don't know yet," she said.
Meanwhile, in explaining how she made it on the list of performers for the White House event, Saw said it had God's hands written all over it.
"My pastor, Bishop Everton Thomas, from Emmanuel Apostolic Church who baptised me last December received a call from Nadine Blair. She informed him that Dr. Agorom Dike called the radio station to get me on the Caribbean and African Faith - Based Leadership Conference, 2016, to give my testimony and perform," she said.
The conference will be held from June 19- 24.
The goal of Caribbean and African Faith - Based Leadership Conference is to promote transformational leadership in the Caribbean and the African region.
This conference, which brings together spiritual leaders, diplomats, congressional representatives, will include a briefing at the White House where Saw is scheduled to make an appearance.
