Renowned artists in the gospel music fraternity set the stage ablaze at the Ukhozi Gospel Music Festival held at the Coca Cola Park (Ellis Park) on Saturday, 4 August.  Acts such as Rebecca Malope, Sechaba, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Lundi and Sipho Makhabane thrilled the crowd as they belted out their most loved songs.

 

It was clear that the Zulu radio station has a massive following as people poured in to experience this impressive musical extravaganza.  By  10 am stadium was roaring with joyous songs of worship and praise coaxing the crowd into a dance frenzy.

Ukhozi’s Linda Sibiya graced the stage to add to the entertainment.  The DJ is famously known for his powerful and motivational breakfast show.

The overarching message of the festival was “Worship God Together”. This resonated throughout Coca Cola Park as performances by Rebecca Malope reached out to the hearts and souls of those who had gathered before God.  A choir of fans sang along in unison.

The festival is the brainchild of EMI Live and BIG FISH Productions who collaborated with Vodacom and SABC as official sponsors.  Proceeds were donated to the Arnie Williams Foundation for Abused Women and Children.   Ukhozi has surely increased its following by bringing the most loved artists to the public. It is an initiative which prompts society to work together in building relationships and reviving hope in the lives that are in need.   The organisers are set to make the show an annual event.

 

As people enjoyed stellar performances, they also celebrated their faith till the sun set at 7pm.

 

Is gospel music a method used to bring people together? Should other radio stations get involved with such music festivals to boost social presence and promote social cohesion? Share your views.
