Joy FM in collaboration with the Urban Consult, an event management and consultancy firm, has launched the maiden edition of Ghana Praise Festival 2013 in Accra to be headlined by South Africa-based Joyous Celebration.

The choral concert will come off on October 5 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Joyous Celebration is a renowned multi award winning gospel ensemble that has a huge following across Africa and among gospel music lovers around the globe.

The group which was formed in 1994 has performed many live concerts across Africa, America and Europe.

The formation of the group coincided with the release of South Africa’s first black president Nelson Mandela from jail.

Speaking at the press launch, Mbali Thebethe, administrator of the group, said the group has in stock a lot of surprises for Ghanaians.

She promised that Ghanaians will have an exciting experience come October 5.

Currently, the group’s production and technical crew led by Eddie Sithole are already in the country to start preparation for the massive concert.
