Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion gears for In­ter­na­tional mar­ket

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment -

THEY have been in­vited by pas­tor TD Jakes to record their 21st al­bum at The Potter’s House Church in Dal­las, US on De­cem­ber 3. The pas­tor broke the news to an ex­cited Potter’s House con­gre­ga­tion last Sun­day. He said: “We’re up to some­thing, plan­ning a very spe­cial event. Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion is well-known in South Africa.

‘‘To give you some sort of con­cept, their mu­sic moves over there as much as Bey­once’s.

“They’re great singers, they can sing their faces off – and they’re go­ing to be join­ing the Potter’s House Choir for a live record­ing!”

Lin­de­lani Mkhize, one of the founders of the group, said they were ex­cited to take the group to the world.

“All I can say is that Joy­ous is big. But now it’s get­ting even big­ger. Record­ing at TD Jakes’ church is un­be­liev­able and ev­ery­one is ex­cited,” Lin­de­lani said.

“We’ll take some fans with us but they’ll know all about the trav­el­ling pack­ages soon.”

Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion has been op­er­at­ing for the past 20 years led by Mkhize, Jabu Hlong­wane and Mthunzi Namba. The group has sold millions of al­bums through­out South­ern Africa.

Its chang­ing line-up of per­form­ers has launched the ca­reers of nu­mer­ous gospel stars in­clud­ing Ntokozo Mbambo, Nqubeko Mbatha and Ma­halia Buchanan.

But be­fore jet­ting off to the US, Joy­ous will per­form at the Dur­ban ICC to­day, Vista Arena in Bloem­fontein on Au­gust 27 and Meropa Casino in Polok­wane on Septem­ber 10. – Dai­lySun
