Voice mania presents Helen Yawson Live in Concert featuring the world renowned worshipper Lionel Peterson and Kingzkid .This annual concert themed Proclaiming Jesus is set to attract a large gathering bringing focus on our common humanity rather than the differences that set us apart through the power of gospel music.
The concert billed for October 26th 2014, at the National Theatre promises to be a real experience, showcasing diversity in gospel music styles and bringing exposure to God’s culture.
The Helen Yawson ministry is undoubtedly unique, marked as it is by the heart of a woman who is determined to lead the nations in true, unbridled worship to a God who so deeply desires it.
She is an accomplished Gospel Singer, Author, Worship Leader, Pastor, Wife and Mother. Helen is a bridge between the “old school” and contemporary Gospel musician. Her unique piercing voice is usually heard as a pre-cursor to her husband’s sermons at the KICC dominion center where she is an Associate Pastor. Pastor Helen, a product of KICC London, led the Choir there, before relocating to Ghana.
Her first solo Album was released in 1998 and the second in Aug. 2001 following that was the highly acclaimed single, Any day, which was released in 2006. In August 2012, she released her current album, My God and I.
She has over the years shared the stage with gospel greats, the likes of Andrea Crouch, Alvin Slaughter, Ron Kenoly, Jesse Dixon, Mary Mary and Daniel Winans
As she once said; “Worship is the context, it’s not a style. Worship can be rock and roll; I think it’s not confined to a genre. To me, worship is about what you're saying, it’s not a particular style, it could be juju or fuji or reggae."
Her undeniable stage presence is captivating, blending unique harmonies combined with pure talent touching the heart of her audience. This has undoubtedly carved an incomparable niche for The Helen Yawson In concert, which begun in 2012.
This year's concert will feature Lionel Peterson, one of the genre's ambassador of worship and praise with famous mega gospel hits such as Jabulani Africa, When the Righteous Prosper, Peace, and Behold the Lamb. The South Africa Legend is renowned not merely for the soul inspiring music he has released since the 80’s but also for his abilities as worship leader and preacher raising the next generation of worshippers globally. He has collaborated with artists like Chevelle Franklin, Neville D and Judith Sepuma and sang on the soundtrack for the 2008 feature film Hansie. Lionel Peterson is set to thrill, renew and inspire souls with his spirit filled songs.
Also on the bill is the new sensation,Kingzkid. Considered a pioneer of Urban Gospel Music in Africa, he was the first Ghanaian to introduce gospel music through different genres, such as Azonto, Pop and Electro Gospel Music.
He has currently been nominated for the Teens choice Awards and has released his latest single “I no dey lie” taking off the Metamorphosis album, 2014.
His contemporary style and uniqueness redefines the status quo when it comes to gospel music, attracting a huge following especially among the youth.
