UNLIKE the maiden edition in 2012, this year’s ‘Tehillah Concert’ by gospel songstress Ohemaa Mercy will solely be a worship affair.
The decision, the multiple awards’ winner explained on Tuesday, is to ensure “something happens” on the D-day, for “heaven to rain on earth.”
“That is why we have also termed it the ‘Tehillah Experience,’ because it will be an experience,” she added.
The concert, slated for the ICGC Calvary Temple (Spintex Road) in Accra on August 2, is themed, “The Ark and the Shofar.”
Artistes such as Cecilia Marfo, Ceccy Twum, Minister Francis Amoh and Kojo Tuffuor (the Psalmist), are billed to perform.
Dr. Michael Boadi Nyamekye, the general overseer of Maker’s House Chapel International, will also spice the concert with a brief sermon.
Briefing the media, the head of the singer’s management team, Isaac Twum, said the Accra concert will be followed with two others in Obuasi and Techiman.
The intention, he indicated, “is to bring together fellow believers in an atmosphere and setting of worship to glorify the Lord,” as part of evangelism drive to win souls for Christ.
He said the Obuasi and Techiman concerts will be held on August 16 and September, respectively, to culminate with “another powerful gospel event” in Accra in December.
“Ohemaa Mercy will also release her latest album for the year 2015/6,” Mr. Twum added, indicating that, “Much work has been done on the album, to bless listeners and gospel fans.”
Touching on why the emphasis on worship this year, Mr. Twum explained that as a gospel artiste, one of Ohemaa Mercy’s strength is worship but which many of her fans do not know.
