The positive turnout for a Gospel Concert held at Jauka Hall in Nemato recently was a perfect demonstration of how much gospel music is loved in Port Alfred.
Godfrey Masele Ministries International together with Living Hope Church presented a Gospel Bash recently which featured Lwethu Roda from Cape Town, Zane Seti from Port Elizabeth, Pastor M. Plaatjie from Grahamstown, and local artist Elethu Makhephe.
Lifa Bhudaza, a manager of Calvary Event and Management was behind the concert’s success as his marketing influence was demonstrated by the large attendance.
Apostle Godfrey Masele, host of the show, sang He is good to me, a touching song that kept the audience on its feet.
Having the responsibility to keep the moment alive was Chuma Jacobs, who took the podium after Masele. When Jacobs sang Alikho igama elimnandi (There is no precious name than His), the congregation attested by joining him in song.
Boasting about God’s grace through his music, Plaatjie sang Nam angazi ngidlule kanjani (I do not know how I went through). Triggered by the song, a number of people pulled out their mobile phones to take videos.
Acknowledging experience as the great teacher, Makhephe sang Through it all I’ve learnt to trust in Jesus.
Living Hope Church choir closed the concert on a high note, singing I am a living hope ndofa nawe (I will die with you).
