I had never been to a gospel rock concert before and when I asked a friend what it is all about, he said they're going to be singing hymns..!! I thought it must be like a church mass or something.. until another friend of mine said they're going to be singing these hymns with guitars and drums..!! I imagined a head-banging rock concert just then.. and got all excited!!! But, when I actually got there, it was neither like a choir nor a rock band... it was entirely different!
It was a blend of everything.. there was western classical music, acappellas (that's music without instruments), solo performances, indian classical music.. and much much more.
I was speechless to see 18 yr old Keisha sing a ballad, and she sounded just like Whitney Houston! There was also this guy Daniel with a sight impairment, who played the piano..!!
All of these people were the finalists of the Gospel music contest that's begun sometime back, it's held every saturday in different parishes. It's a great platform for them to display their talents.. and these were the best bunch! Had a really good time there..!
The next time you get to hear LIVE gospel rock.. don't miss it!!!
