“PRAISE FOR EXTRAORDINARY GRACE”
The Catholic Praise Concert is a one-day, Gospel music concert which has become an annual Catholic evening of Praise music offering to God for Christians. It features some of the best-known musical talents in the Gospel music genre. The Event debuted on the 26th of April 2014 and subsequently evolved into an annual tour with increased momentum in terms of performances, anticipated crowd and venue. It features; praise, worship, dance, and special highlight performances.
During a recent press conference granted by the organizers to the members of the press; print and TV on Saturday 24th June, 2017 at St. Leo Catholic Church which happens to be the venue for this year’s concert, Rt. Rev. Msgr. John Aniagwu, Rev. Fr. Joseph Anyanwuand Mr. Peter Egbumokeireiterated the fact that the event isopen foranyone to attend, for all Christians and individuals who thirst for God, and want to praise God.
Rt. Rev. Msgr. John Aniagwu who is the Parish Priest of the Host Parish, St Leo Catholic Church, also stated the fact that the Catholic Church is very open minded, and diverse in its worship of God, and that the Church is not boring at all and that Catholics love God and honour Mary the Mother of God and not worship her.
Some of the artist present; Rev. Fr. Adelana AKA Fada Fuji, Tessi Aniesi and Ella vibes all stated the challenge faced by Gospel artists in terms of funding and how events like the Catholic Praise Concert is highly welcomed to support Gospel artists in the Church and help them reach out to the world.
Tessi Aniesi made a rather funny but true statement about how some TV houses show gospel songs in the morning and not in the peak period when people can actually watch them and said it wasn’t good enough to motivate the Gospel artists.
For the organizers, the Catholic Praise Concert is simply an opportunity for Christians to come together to praise GOD, interact, put aside un-Godly differences, and together lift one voice in worship to God. In a simple phrase – an offering of PRAISE to God; our lives must go from Grace to Praise of God, that Heaven may take notice of us and our beloved country. It also serves as a medium to showcase beautiful Gospel talents that our country is endowed with.
The Catholic Praise Concert is being organized by the Felicia Michael SoS Foundation, House of Ogugua Michael Egbumokei and Yellow Craig in conjunction with Saint Leo Catholic Church. It is powered by the Holy Spirit and proudly supported by Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Inspiro Productions and Donralph Media Concepts Limited- DMG.
We have come together to celebrate Christ and share our faith while evangelizing Christ through music.
