It was a glorious night at the International Conference Center, last Saturday 17th September, 2016, where this year’s edition of SingOut took place.
Bernard Avle, Citi 97.3’s morning show host was the mc for the night.
Show began on time with Joe Mettle ushering the audience in an awesome time of worship and praise. He and his team introduced their new song, “Owawani,” which was well received by the audience. His hit song “Turning around” also set the atmosphere just right.
After his ministration, he left no doubt in the minds of the audience that indeed, his ministry is a fast growing one and has really come to stay.
Monarch Praise; the resident choir of Living Streams International, organisers of the show – took over and thrilled the audience with over one hour of uplifting music. With their fantastic stage craft and their colourful and graceful costume designed by their head pastor and overseer, Rev. Dr E. S. M. Markwei, they delivered on point every single song and kept the audience on their feet – singing and dancing.
Some of the songs they ministered include “Made a way” by Travis Green, “Turning around for me” by Vashawn Mitchell. They couldn’t have picked a better exiting song; “I Believe” (Bye Bye) by Jonathan Nelson. It was the icing on the cake.
They undeniably depicted the African culture in their own way.
Nigeria’s finest comedian AKPORORO, known in real life as Bowoto Jephta, graced the show with his creative, skilful and hilarious jokes; generating laughter in the Christian way.
Show was live on Citi 97.3 MHz.
Bishop Marvin Sapp, the international guest artist for the night, came up at 9:45pm. He brought along two guitarists, a drummer and keyboardist.
Bishop Marvin Sapp is an American gospel singer, songwriter and worship leader. Being his first time in Ghana, he took a selfie with the audience and a short video after his opening song.
According to him, that was his own way of remembering his visit to Ghana.
He did a medley of some of his old songs like, “He Saw the Best in Me,” “Praise Him In Advance,” “You are God Alone,” and many others. His vocal ability is unquestionable.
Before ministering “Never Would’ve Made It,” he gave a little background to it. He shared the story about his wife’s death – hence the reason for the song. He added that he gets songs during his lowest moments, and this one was no different.
Bishop Marvin managed to involve everyone in the auditorium to praise and worship the lord.
But for a few technical hitches, and the issue of timing, the show was a great one with an experience that will forever remain in the hearts and minds of the audience.
Looking forward to next year’s edition!
