CRANBORNE MUMC TO GRACE ONE VOICE CONCERT
Reigning district and conference United Methodist Men’s Fellowship (MUMC) music champions Cranborne MUMC Choir will once again be a major draw card at the fourth edition of the One Voice Concert set for October 25-26 at Harare Gardens.
The choir will be performing as the only Vabvuwi act at the annual event for the second time in three years, having wowed gospel lovers in September 2017 at the second edition at the Harare International Conference Centre.
Music director Liberty Maziti expressed delight at the latest development, which is another ringing endorsement of Cranborne’s musical pedigree and another opportunity to market the United Methodist Church music brand to the world.
“It’s a great honour and they know we deliver. It feels good to be recognized amongst many Vabvuwi choirs and different prominent singers in our country. Sharing the stage with big brands such as Takesure Zama it’s a great pleasure. (Indeed, we are saying) Vabvuwi for Jesus, ” he said.
The concert comes at a time the choir’s stock continues to rise after excelling in music festivals over the last 12 months and having released their second album Jesu Anotida, which has been well received by music enthusiasts.
Maziti believes Cranborne has come of age and this is the start of new things.
“It shows that we are a formidable force to reckon. Our music is loved by many and it is hard to resist at the moment. We are not going to back down but move forward.The future looks bright”
The event brings together praise teams from different denominations for a day of praise and worship through music with this year’s event having an extra day unlike in previous years with the Harare Gardens providing a different open air feel.
Other acts and prominent ministers set to grace the event include Takasure Zama, Osinachi Nwachukwu from Nigeria, Martin PK from Loveworld and Apostle Java.
