In full view of the statue of this island’s Father Of Independence National Hero Errol Walton Barrow, hundreds converged on Independence Square last evening for the Barbados Public Workers Cooperative Credit Union Limited Sunset Concert in The City, an annual fixture of GospelFest.
It was just after six, when the worship session got going as the band Praise United, a relatively new group on the gospel scene, took to the stage for what turned out to be an inspiring session.
There were other great performances on the night from Purpose Driven, Rapheal Saul and the BPWCCUL Chorale, who really stirred up the crowd.
The lone regional act Ay’ Di Gospel Unity Choir from Martinique proved that language is not a barrier when it comes to praising the Lord, while the performances of N-Cola and Annastacia, both out of Britain, and Canada’s Revival Time Tabernacle Choir elicited rave reviews.
Soul Winners, another local band, brought the curtain down after 10 p.m. on what was truly an awesome evening of praise in The City.
