Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Showbiz Cor­re­spon­dent

MU­SI­CIANS San­dra Ndebele, Vic­tor Kunonga, Sanii Makhal­ima and Basil Mafu will use their mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence to find singers and in­stru­men­tal­ists for a new gospel group — Cross Mo­tion — on Satur­day.

The au­di­tions that will be held at Rain­bow Ho­tel in Bu­l­awayo are open to those aged be­tween 18 and 35.

The quin­tet is look­ing for 30 male and fe­male mu­si­cians that will form a group in the mould of South Africa’s Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion.

Nkosiyethu Wenha, Cross Mo­tion’s sales and mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive, said they were look­ing for tal­ented, pas­sion­ate mu­si­cians.

“Mem­bers of Cross Mo­tion shall be born again Chris­tians with a gift of mu­sic, be­long­ing to any de­nom­i­na­tion,” said Wenha.

“The group’s man­date will not only be about uplift­ing Chris­tians, but to also en­ter­tain and con­vict the non­be­liev­ers all for the ad­vance­ment of God’s king­dom.

“Cross Mo­tion is mo­ti­vated to carry a mes­sage of unity, hope, peace and the love of God with re­sound­ing melo­di­ous vo­cal au­thor­ity.”

He said they part­nered Makhal­ima, Ndebele, Kunonga and Mafu be­cause of their vast ex­pe­ri­ence in the mu­sic in­dus­try adding that they wanted to use the group to bring peo­ple into sal­va­tion through song and dance.

The spokesper­son said each mem­ber of the group when se­lected, would be ex­pected to up­hold and ex­hibit a Christ like char­ac­ter on and off the stage.

“We be­lieve that we are not only am­bas­sadors of the King­dom of God through the mu­sic we sing, but also through the lives that we lead.” — @bon­ganinkunzi.
