SEVERAL local gospel acts are slated for the Hi-Pro Denbigh Gospel Extravaganza at the Denbigh Show Ground in Clarendon, on August 3.

Performers include Grace Thrillers, Carlene Davis, DJ Nicholas, Omari, Kevin Downswell, Kerron Ennis, and Garfield Reid, together with JCDC Gospel Festival finalists.

Produced by Glory Music, the gospel show is about 20 years old, having been introduced by the company's managing director, Tommy Cowan, as part of the entertainment package at the annual Denbigh Show.

"The concept was introduced as an Oldies (Vintage) Show; then it changed to Denbigh Gospel at Sunset. In 1999 the Gospel Train came through with Carlene Davis, Papa San, Judy Mowatt, Junior Tucker, Grace Thrillers, and many more. Up to then Glory Music was responsible for advancing funds to cover the cost of production, with reimbursement through gate receipts," Tommy noted.

However, the arrangement between the organizers of Denbigh and Glory Music changed, at which time Tommy approached the Jamaica Broilers Group for sponsorship through its Hi-Pro brand, with Glory Music producing the annual event.

Over the years patrons of Denbigh have looked forward to seeing the island's leading gospel artistes on stage on the closing night of the agricultural show.
