Zimpraise to launch live DVD

HARARE - Popular interdenominational gospel choir Zimpraise will launch their sixth live DVD tomorrow evening at the New Life Covenant Church in Harare.

The DVD has over 25 songs and was recorded at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) in July.

Tendai Zhou, the group’s publicist, has lauded the launch of the DVD which features some of Zimbabwe’s best gospel musicians.

“During the launch we will have performances from the Zimpraise Choir and some of the songs include the song Sungano which has come first on gospel music charts on various radio stations.

“The DVD has over 25 songs most of which have been arranged by our music director Joseph Madziyire. Some songs on the bumper DVD include renowned gospel music artistes like Sabastian Magacha, Mathias Mhere, Pastor G, Takesure Zamar Ncube and Comfort Manyame, an artiste based in the United States of America,” he said.

Other popular artistes featured on the album include Kudzai Sevenzo and Tembalami.

According to Zhou, the DVD launch will focus entirely on music unlike last year when the concert was combined with the Zimpraise Legendary Awards.

“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.

The interdenominational gospel choir, which was nominated for a top award — the London-based Zimbabwe Achievers Awards last April — recently launched an album in the Harare Gardens titled Women of Praise.

The Women of Praise project featured 40 women musicians including Sharon Manyonganise, Marble Madondo and Melanda Bepura.
