Over the years, The Experience Lagos has quickly become not just a major part of gospel music and worship culture, but a top highlight in the global December calendar, especially in its home country of Nigeria.

This year, the Experience is back and is set to be bigger than it has ever been.

The news of the event’s 15th edition has gone on to whet the appetite of music lovers across the globe, many of whom have been itching for the kind of refreshing and also exciting atmosphere that The Experience has been known to deliver.

Amid a torrid 2020, there was some speculation as to whether the event would take place, as the effects of the pandemic are still being felt around the world.

Interestingly, the situation has opened up an opportunity for bigger participation from audiences and performers alike. The Experience Global edition is going to be a virtual experience, with all aspects of the event streamed online. 

The free event will avail people from all over the world the opportunity for a spiritual encounter right from where they are, with a lineup of world-renowned gospel artists, including the awe-inspiring Tasha Cobbs Leonard.

The American singer/songwriter has had an impressive career and would be debuting at the event for the first time. Her songs “Break every chain” and “For your glory” were not only chart-toppers on the Hot Gospel Songs Chart but have become favourites in churches and worship centers all over the world. 

Participants at The Experience are looking forward to a move of the spirit as The Grammy award-winning singer leads them in worship on Friday. 

Popular contemporary worship music collective founded by Tony Brown and Jonathan Jay, Maverick City, will also be present at The Experience 15 to bring lovers of God in on one of their curated worship sessions. 

Their ability to take listeners along to different levels of worship has been appreciated widely and even more so, because they are able to project these wonderful experiences online.

In one of the audience messages for the event, Pastor Paul Adefarasin said, “I have missed fellowshipping with you the way we used to before, but nevertheless, we must remember that Jesus has given us the victory in all things regardless of what comes our way”.

“I am elated that we can worship the king of glory, traversing the globe in diverse towns, tongues, and talents” he added excitedly. 

Faith worship band, Hillsong United will also grace The Experience’s virtual stage for the first time Friday night, to create their now very familiar atmosphere of worship.

A product of the Hillsong Church, the band released 5 studio albums and over 10 live albums and have become a staple in the gospel music community.

The Experience has maintained its reputation of touching lives with session after session of intensive worship. “An unforgettable experience” as many have called it, it always brings something new and inspiring for the audiences as well as the ministers. 

The online event will be a refreshing change of pace from the usual physical gathering. Most of the previous 14 editions have been held at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos Nigeria, which has necessitated a race to the venue, with attendees looking to get the best seat and view possible.

This year, everyone gets the best seat in the house, with the full impact reaching them live through their various devices. With snacks in hand and comfort assured, the usual already grand Experience is set for a massive boost.

Other amazing artists performing at the event are Don Moen, Donnie McClurkin, Nathaniel Bassey, Travis Greene, Planetshakers, Chevelle Franklyn, Ana Paula Valadao, Nokwe The Poet, Ada, Eben, Onos, Mercy Chinwo, William McDowell, Tope Alabi, Sonnie Badu, and the host choir, The Lagos Metropolitan Gospel Choir (LMGC).

Also expected to feature at the event are Gospel icons including Bishop TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Dr Mensa Otabil, Sarah Jakes Roberts, Angela Davis, , Dr Bill Winston and many more!

As unusual as 2020 has been, the excitement surrounding the event is palpable, especially because people have been looking forward to an atmosphere that would allow them set everything aside and revel in the presence of God.

So many individuals, organizations, and government bodies have had to respond to the year unprepared. As the year moves gradually towards its tail end, experiences that can usher in a new era will be widely celebrated and enjoyed, and The Experience 15 (Global Edition) is in prime position to be one of those.
