Full Gospel presents ‘Arise and Shine’ benefit performance
Published: May 30, 2013
With the heavy rainfall that has blanketed the country over the past two weeks, resulting in heavy damage to property, many people find that their spirits need to be lifted.
They can find that lift presented by the Full Gospel Regional Baptist Churches “Arise and Shine” benefit performance.
The show will feature Nadene Moss, Sonovia Williams, Keith Jones, Latasha Taylor and the Full Gospel Dance and Mime Teams presenting artistic, cultural and inspirational performances at the National Centre for the Performing Arts, Shirley Street, on Saturday, June 8 at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and $10.
The show will defy the expectations of a church production, and present a Broadway-styled performance that will uplift the spirit, according to Williams, the show’s choreographer.
“It’s an experience with a variety that will dazzle and excite the audience,” said Williams.
Moss, the featured artist, is internationally renowned for her powerful ministry and dynamic performances. She is set to take to the stage with her latest recording released on the Full Gospel International record label.
Williams, Jones and Taylor are not just set to give a showstopping performance, but are also excited to contribute to the advancement of young people wanting to learn how to use their gifts in ways that honor God, bless others and represent their country.
The participants said The “Arise and Shine” benefit performance brings a breath of fresh air to the Bahamian entertainment stage, presented by some of the Full Gospel Churches Bahamas Region, under the direction of District Bishop Arnold Josey.
Proceeds from the benefit performance will go towards assisting dancers in the ministry to travel to the Full Gospel International Conference, July 2-9 in Kentucky. The trip is expected to cost $16,000 to $18,000 for the 30 people expected to travel.
Full Gospel Denomination has scores of churches and thousands of members from The Bahamas and celebrates being home to the second presiding bishop of the international body, Bishop Neil C. Ellis. And in a spirit of unity, pastors from among the Full Gospel churches have supported the efforts to make the show a success with a view to making a contribution to the leaders and members of dance and mime teams throughout the body.
