Sing away your Tier 4 Lockdown blues with 3 virtual concerts
Bojo dealt the country a massive blow on Saturday night when he announced the Tier 4 lockdown measures. In a move that has left many feeling blindsided, the prime minister unilaterally “cancelled” Christmas celebrations for the masses. The general mood of the nation has since been that of despair, frustration, and anger.
As the proverbial saying goes “When life gives you lemons make lemonade”. So how do we make the most of this season? Learn to cook a new dish? Start writing that book? Catch up on your favourite Netflix series? Maybe not, given that outraged saints are boycotting the streaming giant over it’s recent ‘praise satan’ post.
For all the gospel music lovers, these 3 virtual gospel concerts are guaranteed to lift your spirits.
- Grammy nominee Jonathan McReynolds presents “Christmas with Those People" on the 24th & 25th December. Special guests include Tasha Cobbs, Kierra Sheard, Common, Mali music, Travis Greene, newbie Doe Jones and Ron Poindexter. This concert will be a mashup of the best moments of McReynolds October “Those People” tour.
- “Christmas with Joe Mettle and The Love Gift” – Multi award winning international worship leader Joe Mettle returns for the 3rd consecutive year with his Christmas day concert. It promises to be a time of deep worship and jubilant thanksgiving interwoven with some of your best loved carols.
- “Premier Gospel Living Room Concerts” on YouTube – showcasing the best in gospel music. The buzzing live gospel music scene came to a standstill this year due to the global pandemic, yet artists and media houses alike have found innovative ways to deliver concerts to us in the comfort of our homes. This lockdown period is a great time to catch up on live performances by some of your favourite artists such as Sounds of New Wine, Volney Morgan & New Ye, Niiella, Charles Dada and Shekinah.
