Gospel Fest 2006

Gospel Fest 2006 compliments of the Nation News

PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH. It was One Awesome Day at Farley Hill National Park yesterday as hundreds strolled in with picnic baskets and blankets preparing for a day of fun, food and Christian fellowship to climax GospelFest 2006.

Emcee for the day was Ronnie Clarke seen below.

Even though Barbadian veterans Sister Marshall and Joseph Niles were well received, along with other forms of ministry, the crowd patiently waited for the two main performers – Stitchie and Papa San

They lined the barricades and were armed with flags, rags – anything to wave – as the Jamaican artistes came on stage one after the other. Here, the sun shone brightly on these worshippers as they had a spirit-filled time praising the Lord. (MF)

Singing group IDMC had the audience do the electric slide as the sang Lord I Lift Your Name On High to the beat of Michael Jackson's ABC.

FOOD, FUN AND WORSHIP – one awesome day.

From 1 p.m. there were over 200 people at Farley Hill National Park for the annual Gospelfest's big finale One Awesome Day. An hour later, there were over 300 people and the numbers kept rising as people – families, friends and fellow worshippers – trickled in with chairs, blankets and food and scattered themselves all over the park.

Food tents were in abundance and sponsors' flags seemed to join in the praise and worship ceremony. All over the grounds, it was a family affair.

The day was well on its way before the allotted time with a pre-session with pianist Winston Dyal from Canada.

Bishop Malcolm from Britain blessed the day's proceedings with a prayer, and the Agin Court Singers of Canada started the ball rolling with a few a capella renditions.

The energetic Praise Academy Of Barbados didn't disappoint, with reverent dance moves to Clap Your Hands (also the name of the dance). They received a warm response from the crowd.

The youth outnumbered the over-40s, and their presence was felt as they rocked to the music of deejay SPECIAL K who dropped popular gospel dub hits from Jamaican artistes Stitchie and Papa San, a teaser for what was to come later in the day.

The crowd seemed to get more and more hyped as the afternoon progressed. Singing group IDMC had the audience dancing the electric slide, while gospel veteran Sister Marshall had them dancing and singing along with popular choruses like When You're Standing On A Solid Rock, Goodbye World, Satan You Can't Prevail, We've Got The Victory and more.

International Gospel Hall of Fame Joseph Niles also graced the stage and he too had the crowd singing every word to hits like Ship Ahoy and When I Got Saved.

Producer of the show Adrian Agard said: "This year continues to show the consistency from Barbadian supporters. I am pleased with the growth of the show over the years and the response continues to get better and better."

Stitchie before his performanced mingled with the crowd and offered photo opportunities with his fans.
