All set for Fun in the Son
EVERYTHING is in place for the 12th staging of the annual Fun in the Son concert set to take place at the Portmore Mall Park in St Catherine, today.
Glory Music's Tommy Cowan, who is the event organiser, said this year the festival will boast one of the best stage sound in years.
"I am hoping it will be good," he told the Jamaica Observer.
Cowan said he is looking forward to another successful staging.
"Some of it has been quite a battle. Wherever there is a battle there is a great victory," he said.
He said Fun in the Son is about changing lives and giving people hope, as the show's motto suggests: Know Christ and let Him be known.
Cowan had high praises for the partnership between his Glory Music and Jamaica Broilers, describing it as "an awesome one lifting up the name of God".
Fun in the Son will be a blend of spoken word with Andrew Palau and inspirational performances which will include the likes of Papa San, Carlene Davis, Kevin Downswell, Goddy Goddy, Kereen Gregory, Jermaine Edwards, and headliner Hezekiah Walker.
Hezekiah Walker, an American Grammy-winning gospel artiste, is known for his praise and worship favourites including Every Praise and God Favored Me.
There will be additional thrills in the form of the Christian stunt riders Extreme Sports, a five-man team out of USA.
