IT WAS ALL PRAISE TO GOD in song and dance at the Kentucky Fried Chicken Gospel Spectacular on Sunday night, part of the 2017 Oistins Fish Festival.
Most of the performers at the Oistins Bay Gardens event were drawn from areas in Christ Church, including the Oistins Church Of Christ Chorale who got things off to a rousing start.
Their numbers, which included I Lift My Hands To The Coming King and You Deserve It, were well received by the large crowd, which included Member of Parliament for the area John Boyce, and Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett.
The Sunshine Dancers, made up of children from several primary schools, lit up the atmosphere with their enthusiasm and movements.
Another Nature, a dance group of young people, also thrilled the gathering with their energetic moves.
Some brave and talented pupils from Bay Primary School also gave a good showing, with a medley of songs such as Jesus I Believe In You, We Want To Say Thank You and We Are A Chosen Generation, in which the crowd could not help but sing along.
One of their school-mates, Jenina Neverson, had earlier done justice to the popular song God On The Mountain.
Other well-received performances included a trio from St Luke’s/Brighton Primary on the recorder, the Christian Holiness Church’s Gates Of Praise, gospel icon Sister Marshall and Jewel Austin. (RL)
