As I said when I posted the rehearsal pictures, it was a day I will never trade for silver. Not even gold. What a day!!!!!
The programme went on well as planned and thanks to God. After the first one was cancelled, there were mixed feelings among everybody and we all doubted it when a new day was fixed. The question we asked was, how can you organise such a programe on mid-week? Will people even attend it? On wednesday, the programe was to start by 6pm but to the Glory of God, by 4pm, the venue was almost filled to capacity. People were already in a queue at the entrance waiting to get their tickets checked so they can enter.
I can't describe it. The place was filled far above our expectations. It brought worshipers together. The supprise personality there was the former President of Ghana, Flt. Lt Jerry John Rawlings and according to him, the song that attracted him was Mercy said no. Also present were ministers of state. After the programe, politics was lost and both supporters of the ruling party and the opposition came together. That is the power of worship.
Before Cece came on stage, local artist we on stage to perform. They performed to the Glory of God and placed us all in the mood waiting for Cece. Finally, she came out and for the noise and shouting, I can't really describe. She engaged the audience in a sing along. It was really a nice performance and to the Glory of God. Time spent there was never lost. The whole place was electrified and wished all my readers were present. The best testimony on the performance will be seeing it yourself but it was really a blessing.
After the performance, she went to visit the Cape Coast castle on Thursday with the family and the team and was seen off at the airport but she promised to come anytime she is invited.
Big thanks to the Almighty God for making it possible. Thanks to the organisers, the Multimedia Group Limited and Adom 106.3 fm, Cece and her group, all the local artist, the media, the audience and all my blog readers.
Stay blessed and expect more pictures on the flickr page soon.
