All set for Zimpraise live DVD release

HARARE – Renowned interdenominational gospel choir, Zimpraise will this Saturday release their sixth season live DVD at Harare International Conference Centre (HICC).

Renowned gospel artistes, including American-based Comfort Manyame, Sebastian Magacha, Kudzai Sevenzo, Pastor G, Thembalami and rising star Mathias Mhere will grace the occasion.

Tendai Zhou, Zimpraise publicist told the Daily News that this year’s live DVD performance will carry 35 songs setting it apart from the previous DVDs.

“This year we have set over 35 songs selected and arranged by our CEO, Joseph Madziyire. This sixth live DVD recording will be running under the theme; It’s all about Jesus,” said Zhou.

The live DVD recording is expected to see the youthful and energetic choir belting out their own rendition of traditional hymns and compositions.

Meanwhile, the choir has gone for a five-day camp in Gomojena outside Harare for their final preps before exciting the nation on Saturday. 

“We are leaving for Gomojena where the team will receive vocal training and engage in team-building activities and prayer. We will return on Saturday ready for the performance which will kick-off at 2:30pm until evening,” said Zhou.

The Zimpraise choir has been in existence for the past decade under the watchful eye of award winning DJ McDonald “Mcdee” Chidavaenzi and the choir’s Madziyire.

It is in partnership with big names in the gospel music industry like Pastor G, Pride Priestly and Sebastian Magacha.

Zhou promised fans that this year’s live DVD recording will focus more on music unlike last year when the concert was combined with the Zimpraise Legendary Awards.

“Unlike last year, we will have more music this year. Last year, the event didn’t reach its full potential because we had awards that were running concurrently with the live DVD concert,” said Zhou.

Recently, the interdenominational gospel choir launched a debut album for a women project titled Women of Praise.

It comprises of Sharon Manyonganise, Marble Madondo and Melanda Bepura.

The debut performance was held in Harare Gardens in front of multitudes of gospel music lovers.
