KG EAGER TO MAKE HER GUYANA DEBUT
Kingston, Jamaica - Gospel singer, Kereen Gregory, aka KG, is just about ready to exhale.
She confesses that she has been holding her breath, waiting for that call which would signal the official launch of her career internationally, and that moment has finally come.
The rising gospel artiste has been invited to perform in Guyana over the Easter, a period considered by Christians as the holiest of seasons. As Kereen explained, it's not that she has never performed overseas before, it's just that this time she is being recognised on her own merit. KG notes that she is therefore embracing the opportunity to step forward in her designated space and spread the message in song.
"To God be the glory," a bubbly KG said of the upcoming event. "Prior to now, I have gone abroad as a back-up singer, complementing a main gospel act. Don't get me wrong, I am truly grateful for the experiences and I have learnt so much while those journeys. However, there is a different feeling when a promoters asks for you, specifically. I feel like I am growing as an artiste and that the efforts of my team to put me out there are bearing fruit," KG said, with a huge smile.
Kereen, whose singles have been generating much feedback from both the gospel and secular arenas, is scheduled for back-to-back performacnes on the mainland territory of Guyana. The first concert takes place on April 8 at the Kwakwani venue. Entitled Rhema Praise, the concert will also feature a line-up of the best gospel acts in Guyana.
The following day, April 9, KG will again minister in song, this time in Guyana's capital city, the historic Georgetown. That event is billed as The Real Easter Praise and will be held at the Malteneous Sports Club.
Armed with songs such as Ride Out Your Storm, Highly Favoured and Blessed, God Alone. Lifting Up Praise, Lord Do Mi Again and the controversial Who Me, You Mad, KG is eagerly anticipating two glorious nights of praise and worship with fans in Guyana.
"Of course, all of this takes on an extra special meaning because it's happening during Easter and as Christians there is no better time to reflect and give praise to God. I just know that it will be awesome," KG said emotionally.
