On the 7th of December 2012, The 7th Edition of The Experience, took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square Onikan, Lagos. It is undoubtedly The Largest Gospel Music event in the world with over 500,000 (I would say over a million) people in attendance. This year's event featured Artistes like Don Moen, Dietrick Haddon, Chevelle Franklyn, Micah Stampley, Israel Houghton, Fred Hammond and The Soweto Spiritual Singers and Nigerian Artistes like Wale Adenuga, Sammie Okposo, Timi Dakolo, Mike Aremu and the Chosen Treasure Choir. Michelle Williams of the defunct group Destiny's Child also graced the occasion. She sang the Nigerian National Anthem beautifully.
It was a Night of Worship, Praise and Prayers. You can Imagine 11 hours of non stop Praise and Worship.
Just like the previous editions, I worked with the electronic media team and also had the opportunity to take pictures with my recently acquired Nikon DSLR camera and I have a few shots to share. Since its inception, I have only missed two editions the 2nd and 3rd(2007, 2008).
Its been a while I posted on this blog. I hope to post frequently. This time for real :D
