Concert with a difference

Organiser Donald Brooks is encouraging everyone to come out and enjoy the night’s proceedings. In addition to having fun, Brooks says he is also expecting great spiritual things to happen.

“This will be a concert with a difference,” Brooks said. “Patrons can expect a lot of enjoyment throughout the show as there will be singing, preaching, dancing and eating.”

“This concert is not only to entertain, but to bring an awakening to the goodness of God. As we minister through the power of music, we are also expecting souls to come to Jesus,” the organiser added.

In addition to performances, there will be segments of evangelical preaching from co-organiser Pastor Talsey throughout the night. The concert will also feature cell phone giveaways from sponsors Digicel.

There will also be a VIP section offering wine and cheese and other beverages.
