Local gospel music was the big winner on Saturday as thousands of worshippers converged on the Montego Bay Convention Centre, to witness some of the biggest Jamaican acts deliver performances that will be etched in the minds of those who attended for years to come. The event started off well with the Leharia Singers setting the pace with renditions such as God Blocked It and For Every Mountain. As the atmosphere for worship increased, local act Sonia Rowe seemed in her element. Pastor Sonia Simpson from Canada struggled to follow suit, although she had good responses for her reggae rendition of The Anchor Holds. Other performances included Canada-based gospel crooner George Banton took worship to another level, the Grace Thrillers, Jabez and the US’s Alvin Slaughter.
