KG impresses at Kitson Town gospel concert
Kingston Jamaica - It's not easy for a relatively new artiste to stand out at a concert featuring gospel heavyweight such as Minister Carlene Davis, Goddy Goddy and Kingdom Soldiers, but rising gospel singer Kereen 'KG' Gregory did just that at a concert in Kitson Town recently.
The event was entitled Ash Wednesday Praise and proved to be a rousing praise and worship session in the parish of St Catherine. It was KG's very first time in Kitson Town and she kept her promise to make her performance memorable.
From the moment she hit the stage, KG connected with the audience and steadily built up a momentum with smart selections and verbal interactions with the crowd. Her naturally bubbly personality and her strong love for Christ shone brightly as she ministered in song. KG's 30 minutes seemed all too short and she surely left the crowd wanting more.
Among her selections were Ride Out Your Storm, Highly Favoured and Blessed, God Alone. Lifting Up Praise and Lord Do Mi Again. And the fans showed their appreciation, especially on numbers such as the dancehall gospel flavoured Lord Do Mi Again and Ride Out The Storm.
"I would rate this as one of my best performances ever," a tired but very upbeat KG declared after the show. "I could feel the energy from the crowd and the love was amazing. As to Sister Carlene (Davis), she was just awesome. I would really like to thank the organisers for giving me the opportunity to perform on this event and I look forward to next year's Ash Wednesday Praise," KG said with a big smile.
Then KG was off to sign more autographs and share in hugs from the children who just couldn't seem to get enough of this rising gospel artiste whose stagecraft and musical creativity have definitely improved since she made her official public outing four years ago as a finalist in the JCDC gospel competition.
In between performances, KG, who also sang at the launch of gospel radio station 91.7 FM in Mandeville on February 25, is busy putting the final touches on her soon-to-be-released debut album.
"As we get closer to completing the project, things just get more intense, but we know that God is the driver and all of our work is to give praise and glory to Him. I am working with a great team and I can't wait to share this album with the world," KG declared.
