Power and Beauty Gospel Choir to perform in Norwich
Norfolk based Gospel musicians Ike and Linda Nnene have announced details of the next Power and Beauty Gospel Choir concert in Norwich on September 8, raising funds for local children’s bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey.
The Power and Beauty Band led by Ike and Linda Nnene from Norwich are set to perform their joyous, passion-filled songs in a gospel music concert at Norwich Central Baptist Church on September 8. With glorious vocal harmonies, soaring music, costumes and a sense of celebration, the Power and Beauty Gospel concert will bring delight to all ages.
Linda Nnene said: “It will be an evening of inspiring, joy-filled gospel music performances which promises to lift your heart and soul. We will perform a mixed repertoire of contemporary and gospel popular music, some of which will be familiar to our audience. The evening will kick start with one of VaShawn Mitchell’s popular songs, Joy.”
Ike and Linda write their own songs and encourage songwriting within their group. As well as being gospel music artistes, singer songwriters and worship leaders, Ike is a GP at Thorpewood Medical Group in Norwich and Linda is a teacher at the City of Norwich School.
The couple, who are part of the Praise and Worship team at SOUL Church and regular columnists for Network Norfolk, are keen to share their dynamic music with a wider audience. Over the last couple of years they have brought together talented singers and musicians from Norwich, Cambridge and London to form the Power and Beauty Band.
Last year the Power and Beauty Band held their debut gospel concert at the Blake Studio in Norwich School and helped raise £411.25 for Nelson’s Journey and £203.43 for Bloodwise. This year they will focus their fundraising on Nelson’s Journey, a Norfolk charity providing bereavement support to children.
Linda said: “When we presented the cheque to Nelson’s Journey we were touched again by the wonderful work they do and how they use charitable funds raised to impact the lives of children who are affected by bereavement. It is good to know that we are using our talents for something that serves the community.”
With a bigger venue this year the couple are hoping to introduce more people to their inspiring, emotionally-charged praise music.
Ike said: “Our message is all about encouraging people to have fulfilled lives. We know that when people are touched by the love of God they experience extra grace to live lives that are complete. A lot of the songs relate to being able to tap into that connection with God, and to get ahead in every aspect of our lives. We are really pleased that we are using a bigger venue so more people can come”.
Advance tickets are £6 available online here or £10 on the door.
