Its here again, the 5th Edition of The Experience concert happening live at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, Nigeria on the 3rd of December 2010, 7pm.
The Experience is an interdenominational gospel concert featuring some of the best known musical talents. It has become the world's largest gospel music concert and the largest musical event in Africa. The Experience is convened and hosted by Pastor Paul Adefarasin of The House on The Rock and endorsed by 15 frontline churches and christain organisations in Nigeria.
The concert has featured different artists such as Don Moen, Kirk Franklin, Ron Kenoly, Cece Winans, Israel Houghton, Donnie McClurkin, Kurt Carr, Bebe Winans, Tye Tribbett, Lionel Petersen, and a lot of indigenous gospel artistes .
I have witnessed two editions of The Experience. The first being the maiden editon in 2006. I was an undergraduate at that time and I travelled down to Lagos with a couple of friends.
My second Experience was in 2009 (4th Edition), having missed the 2nd and 3rd Editions.
This year's event will feature artistes like Don Moen, Panan Percy Paul, Papa San, Phil Driscol, Mary Mary, Micah Stampley, Judy Jacobs, Mike Aremu, Isreal Houghton, Sammy Okposo, Fred Hammond, Chevelle Franklyn, Ron Kenoly and the Chosen Tresure Choir.
You can imagine 11 hours of worship, live music and prayers in a concert with over 500,000 people in attendance and its all for FREE.
This year, I'm involved in the event in the electronic media team for live updates, live blogging, Facebook updates, twitter, i-reporting, etc.
I'll be tweeting live at the event so you can follow me @ http//:www.twitter.com/9jaboyb
