Move! - - TV WATCH - By Vin­cent Phahlane

IT’S Easter time and many gospel music fans will be glued to their favourite gospel tele­vi­sion show. Among the pop­u­lar ones are Gospel Gold and It’s Gospel Time. The two shows have a dif­fer­ent of­fer­ing, but are both spir­i­tu­ally up­lift­ing.

ABOUT THE SHOWS

Gospel Gold is now pre­sented by a KwaZu­luNatal-born beauty Sthem­bile Mh­longo as well as ac­tor and pre­sen­ter Thabiso Mokhethi on SABC1.

While It’s Gospel Time, pre­sented by gospel singer Rebecca Ma­lope on SABC2.

Gospel Gold is a premier gospel music show watched by millions of South Africans.

The show fea­tures videos and live per­for­mances from gospel music singers and cel­e­brates the big­gest-sell­ing mu­si­cal genre in South Africa. It in­tro­duces view­ers to ex­cit­ing new sounds.

It’s Gospel Time is hosted in front of a live stu­dio au­di­ence which fea­tures gospel music videos, pro­files of artists and groups, gospel music news and dis­cus­sions on re­lated top­ics.

HOW THE SHOWS DIF­FER

It’s Gospel Time is a weekly gospel music show which is a cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal gospel stars and touts it­self as a plat­form to launch new un­signed gospel tal­ent on na­tional tele­vi­sion. The show also has a res­i­dent band. Gospel artists are in­vited to show­case their al­bums and the show aims to up­lift the na­tion through in­volv­ing peo­ple to help each other.

Gospel Gold is dif­fer­ent in that al­though a gospel artist is given a plat­form to per­form, there is no au­di­ence in the stu­dio.

The show also vis­its dif­fer­ent churches across the coun­try and show­cases how they praise and wor­ship in their ser­vices. It also speaks to lead­ers of churches about how they run their churches. You can catch Gospel Gold on Sun­day at 9am on SABC1 and It’s Gospel Time on Sun­day at 9pm on SABC2.

IT ALSO SPEAKS TO LEAD­ERS OF CHURCHES
