Admission Is Free! Zimpraise To Host Summer Gospel Festival Concert
Zimpraise Choir is a contemporary gospel group that is based in Harare Zimbabwe, the group has stood the test of time. It was founded in 2006, some of its founders are Garikai Ndanga, Macdonald Macdee Chidavaenzi and Joseph Madziyire.
The choir has stolen many hearts of Zimbabweans and has become a household name Zimpraise sometimes dominates local musical chats. It holds an annual festival and this year is no exception.
Organisers of the annual festival are releasing the full programme as well as lists of performers which can only mean that preparations are already in advanced stages.The event will be held at Harare Gardens this coming Saturday (3 November 2018).
The theme of the concert is “One God, One Love” to promote love, peace and harmony. It will be free of charge for all attending parties. The Zimpraise choir will not be performing alone at this concert. Some local gospel singers like Mathias Mhere and Janet Manyowa supporting Zimpraise choir.
Zimpraise boss Joseph Madziyire said preparations were at advanced stage for the show.
We are so happy that rehearsals are underway and we have some local acts who will be supporting us. They have been with us at most of our shows. We have decided to do the event for free.
Since we started this concept it was our idea to make them free of charge but financial constraints were limiting us.
We are proud that in the past years we have never missed an edition. This year it is all about the people, giving back to the community.
Madziyire said they chose the theme with the aim of encouraging unity. “We should not fight and suffer at the same time. We are one family of God. We dedicate the event to the people of Zimbabwe. Apart from music and dance, the event will also have braai and I urge everyone to come and worship the Lord through music and dance,” he said.
Zimpraise engage in the culture of recording a live DVD at their annual concerts. Madziyire said
they will also take the opportunity and record the live DVD at the event. The DVD will be released weeks later.
He said he was also confident that the show will go well because he got support in terms of partnership with life assurance company First Mutual Life and CAPS Pharmaceuticals to fulfill his dream.
Last year’s edition of the festival saw United States influential preacher and senior pastor of the Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas, Thomas Dexter Jakes (popularly known as TD Jakes) alongside Bishop John Francis United Kingdom attending.
