Gospel acapella treat for Byo mu­sic lovers

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Reporter

GOSPEL acapella groups in Bu­l­awayo are set to give mu­sic lovers a treat when they stage a Fill up the FOG con­cert.

The show will be held at the Bu­l­awayo Fam­ily of God (FOG) Church au­di­to­rium on Septem­ber 24 and will fea­ture prom­i­nent acapella groups such as Fam­ily Voices, Shalom Adonai, Power House, Orion and Touch.

En­try on the day will be $5 for adults and $2 for chil­dren at the door.

Hil­lary Moyo, di­rec­tor of Ex­hibit Events, or­gan­is­ers of the show, said they wanted to hold a show that would ex­pose the groups to a 1 000 plus audience.

“The ba­sic idea is to help lo­cal groups in Bu­l­awayo to stage for an audience of 1 000 and more. The venue can hold that much peo­ple and we urge them to come and en­joy a night of melo­di­ous sounds that up­lift the spirit,” said Moyo.

He said there was too much fo­cus by lo­cal pro­mot­ers on sec­u­lar mu­sic, which has not drawn the de­sired crowds.

“Bu­l­awayo has been fo­cus­ing a lot on hip hop and house mu­sic with­out much suc­cess. So Fill Up the FOG is a way to show that there’s an un­tapped mar­ket out there, which is gospel mu­sic. In­di­vid­u­ally the groups can at­tract size­able crowds in var­i­ous venues in the city,” said Moyo.
