New year with gospel


Share post:

SWEET GOSPEL SINGING and merriment filled King George V Memorial Park in St Philip Sunday evening, as scores of Barbadians came out to partake in the Thy Kingdom Come concert.

Many people dotted the decoratively-lit park with blankets and chairs, as they sang along lustily with the performers, even forming a congaline to dance the night away at the event held under the patronage of Member of Parliament for St Philip North, Michael Lashley

He said the gospel concert, part of the seventh annual Festival Of Lights organised by the St Philip North Community Group, was designed to start the New Year off on the right foot.

“We wanted to usher in the new year and all celebrations in St Philip by placing the element of spirituality at the centre of the activities. This concert was held to further foster community spirit and to give families and the different communities throughout St Philip the opportunity to bond together,” he added.
