Sell-out crowd at Vocal Ex concert
BULAWAYO gospel choir Vocal Extraordinaire set a rocking precedence last week at their Celebratory Concert which was held at Family of God Auditorium.
The Celebratory Concert was a way of thanking God for the success they have been experiencing as a group.
“We decided to name our concert Celebratory Concert as we are celebrating how far God has taken us through this successful journey. It was also a gesture of bidding goodbye before we embark on our one-week trip to South Africa next week where we will get an opportunity to share the stage with renowned musicians such as Chantelle Swarts and Mahalia Buchanan,” said Vocal Ex founder Thembelani Mdlaziba.
He thanked Bulawayo people for turning out in numbers.
“We would like to thank all the people who came out and invested their time in this concert. We did not expect so much people. This was beyond what we expected, Bulawayo turned out in immerse numbers experiencing an over flow but all went well and was in control. This was the best attended concert that we have ever held. We really appreciate our audience for all the support we have got so far, it shows that we are growing spiritually as a group,” Mdlaziba said.
Those who attended the concert had the opportunity to experience the presence of God. The group ministered to the people with so much energy and enthusiasm. The crowd could not resist the charm of the group which sang melodiously. The crowd sang along and danced to the songs that were delivered to them.
“What we experienced was so marvellous. The atmosphere was electric, the audience sang and danced along as we ministered to them. The support that was shown to us by the people in Bulawayo was very intense. We promise that we will always do our best to deliver the best so that the word of God can reach many people.”
On their come back from the South African trip they will start preparations for their family concert to be held at Bulawayo Theatre in December.
“On our come back we will be preparing for our family concert scheduled for 23 December. We have invited Joyous celebration singer Ayanda Shange and former Joyous celebration singer Avis who is one of the leading gospel artistes, let Bulawayo look forward to this one,” he said.
