It has become an annual ritual for gospel music group, Joyful Way Incorporated (JWI) to bless their fans with a concert and this year will be no different.
The group will lead a team of gospel artistes in an exciting Explosion of Joy concert scheduled for the National Theatre on Saturday, December 26.
And to celebrate with them will be guest ministers, Hlengiwe Ntombela of South Africa’s Joyous Celebration fame and Joe Mettle.
A member of the organising team, Michael Awartey told Showbiz that the aim of the programme is basically to evangelise by sharing Christ through music.
“It is also to offer participants the opportunity to thank God for seeing them through the year. We do this by providing good quality gospel music and to thank God for seeing us throughout the year successfully’’.
Joyful Way incorporated was formed 43 years ago and has nurtured many young talents for the gospel fraternity. Currently, the group has14 albums which were recorded between 1978 and 2012 and they include Joyful Celebration (2012), Barima Yesu (2001), Osabarima (1994) and Joyful Noise (1978).
Despite being established over four decades ago, the group has evolved with the changing times and has adopted the contemporary approach which appeals to the new generation.
