Once again, gospel singer, Bernard Amankwah, and His Presence Ministries will host yet another Celebration of His Grace concert at the National Theatre on Sunday, September 18.
“I know these names aren’t too familiar in mainstream gospel music but they have set themselves apart with their gift of singing and I know they will make a meaningful impact and be a blessing to patrons on the day,” Bernard Amankwah told Showbiz on Monday.
The Mercy artiste sums up the expectation on the day with this, “As we lift up holy hands in praise, the Lord will come to make His habitation among men.”
Popular figures have always been instrumental in promoting peace and unity during elections and coming off in an election year, the concert is sub-themed, ‘Peace Concert’.
On hand to deliver peace messages will be a parade of eminent Ghanaian and foreign dignitaries who have graciously consented to become Peace Ambassadors at the concert.
It will be the second by the gospel artiste, the first being the Peace Concert of 2012 which was held at the forecourt of the Banquet Hall, State House.
“We have no other country but Ghana and inspite of our different tribal and political backgrounds, we must see ourselves as one people working towards the common agenda of development. Our political diversities shouldn’t be a cause for war,” he emphasised his call for a peaceful elections.
Essentially, however, Celebration of His Grace is about music. What will draw the crowd is Bernard’s latest album, I’m Redeemed, which was released late last year.
The artiste who is also known for songs such as Mercy and Rescue has assured patrons to perform live songs on his new Redeemed album.
