Jamaican-born ace gospel music icon, Chevelle Franklyn, was apparently excited by the popularity of her songs during her performance at the ongoing Calabar Festival. The crowd had chorused every hit track as she entertained them at one of the festival’s segments tagged, Voices of Paradise, which held at the Millennium Park, Calabar.
Franklyn, who emerged on the gospel music scene as one of the most outstanding Ministers of Music of the 21stCentury, performed alongside wonderful dancers that moved the wave of praise to every corner of the arena.
The spectacular performance by this multiple award-winning Psalmist of international repute, proved to the crowd her worth as a songwriter/producer and vocal capacity singer.
The visiting musician was not alone at the elevated show; the event also featured sensational Nigerian gospel musician and renowned saxophonist, Mike Aremu, doing what he knows best. Aremu, noted for his Jazz gospel music style gave a sterling performance that was greeted with excitement.
The programme also featured choral competition by church congregations in Calabar and other choral groups, who sang, danced to the popular mantra that ‘Christ is the reason for the season.’
Other gospel artistes who ministered in songs were Marvelous Odiete and C’Mion.
