In the midst of all the calypso revelry some festival-goers will be raising the roof in praise during this Crop Over season.

For the third consecutive year, gospel music will feature prominently on the Crop Over calendar with the “Praise Is What We Do” Crop Over Gospel Concert in association with LIME.

Sponsor representatives from LIME, Co-operators General Insurance and the Downes & Wilson Funeral Home paid a visit to the artistes during one of the countdown to D-day practise sessions earlier this week and got right into the preparations.

On Thursday, July 4 at 8:00 p.m. gospel music lovers and worship leaders alike will witness dynamic performances from the crème de la crème of the Barbadian gospel community at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

Ministering in song, dance, instruments and word will be the Mother of Gospel, Sister Marshall along with trailblazers Paula Hinds, James Leacock, Allison Norville-Forde and the New Dimension Dancers.  Representing the new era of gospel music is De Warrior, Neesha Woods, John Yarde, Gozzy and Shamar Watson. There will also be a dramatic performance by actress/comedian Jennifer Walker.  The backing band is Healing Hands and the worship emcee is Marissa Boyce of CITA Radio.

Gospel has been increasingly becoming one of the popular activities on the official Crop Over calendar and the NCF expects another sold out crowd for this year’s event.
