Gospel Concert Planned for Memorial Park After Carnival

Mikal Evans

But after the J’Ouvert and Carnival, there is a huge gospel concert planned for Memorial Park also in the city. Three international artists are in the Jewel for a second annual gospel concert organized by Mikal Evans of So-Glo Ministries from Dangriga. The gospel concert is part of a nationwide tour which will take the artists to twelve high schools. Since arriving in Belize, the artists have performed at the Belmopan Baptist and Cayo Christian Academy and today thrilled the students at Nazarene High School in Belize City. Evans spoke to News Five about their message to the youths.

“When we went in last year, it was tremendous, the kids were awed by the fact that something positive is there to look forward to and so we decided to do it again this year. The tour includes…last year it included one international artist. This year it includes three international artists: We have Steven Murphy, Kweli Silva and Reconciliation that are here in country to get this tour done, to get the message out to the kids.”

“I was born into music, my family musical background, but professionally, seven years with the ministry. It is just a blessing because the ministry has brought me places that I never expect to be, especially a place like Belize. So seven years and we are bringing the message of Jesus Christ straight gospel reggae.”

“I’m from Jamaica and I used to be involved with secular music and had some rough time as a secular man—a man that know about god but never accept them for myself. But back in 2004, I gave my life to the lord and I went back into music from a gospel standpoint haven’t done secular in ten years. And god has blessed me so much and has given me so much—not only musically, ministerial, socially and every way. So god loves me and I believe I am called out to be an instrument of reconciliation.”

“The message is that you were born with a purpose; that you are indeed a child of god. That is pretty much what we permeate to the young children.”

“Tonight we have a preconcert rally at Trinity Assembly; that’s on the western highway. That’s just a pre for tomorrow night because we will have a big main event which will include Christ ambassadors, Grupo Genesis from up north, Ripple Effect from Belmopan and then we have the three artists and guest appearance from Louis Wade from Plus TV. So it is going to be big. It starts at seven in the evening and goes right through to midnight out at the memorial park.”

 

On Monday, the tour heads to Orange Walk where the international artists will perform at three schools. On Tuesday and Wednesday they head south to four schools in the Stann Creek District before making their last stop on Thursday in Punta Gorda.
