Orient Theatre is set to reverberate with holy sounds on Sunday when International Assemblies of God hosts a music show.
“Popular artists, such as Betusile Mcinga, Dumi Mkokstad and Khanyisa Sabuka, will be among various gospel artists who will bless the audience on the day,” said event organiser Zoe Sontshi.
Other gospel artists expected to perform, include power couple Butho and Yolanda Vuthela, Simthembile Nkuzi, Zipho Vena, Xolani Mdlalose, Lusizi Khango, Asithandile and Vovee.
Motivational speaker pastor Lali Tokwe of Umhlobo Wenene FM will be the guest speaker.
Butho will sing songs from his new album, Ndiyanela nguWe Baba.
“It will be the first time I perform the album since it was released a few months ago. Songs like Izulu Liphezulu are already getting airplay and the response is good,” he said.
He added he will also sing some of his popular songs, such as Ndenzel’uncedo, Phosan’ umnatha and Uyasixolela.
“We invite people to come in their numbers to rejoice in the presence of the Lord,” he said.
Former Joyous Celebration member Xolani Mdlalose’s fans will get to watch him live as he will also take to the stage to perform songs from his album My Worship and well-known Joyous Celebration songs.
Speaking on behalf of the Zwelitsha-based gospel outfit, the Lord Comforters, Naba Sinuka said they were excited to be part of the event.
“It has been a while since we last performed in East London and our fans can expect a reviving performance,” she said.
