The famous harbour city of Ghana; Tema, this Easter will arguably host the biggest gospel concert so far this year. The concert, dubbed ‘Cwasi Oteng’s Mercy Project Concert’, is a live recording concert of Cwasi Oteng’s new album, ‘The Mercy Project’ and will feature the notable greats of contemporary Ghanaian gospel music: Nii Okai, Pastor Helen Yawson and Ike Nanor.
It is scheduled to take place at the ultra modern, plush and spacious auditorium of the Tema Community 8 Lighthouse Chapel on Easter Sunday, 4pm prompt.
Tema has been noted for many street jams during Easter and other festive seasons every year. Surprisingly, the ‘Mercy Project Concert’ has managed to come out this year as the headline concert of the city and Ghana’s capital, Accra, for the Easter season.
Speaking to this writer in an interview, Cwasi Oteng said the live recording concert is part of a two-fold project, The Mercy Project, which God had placed on his heart to undertake. According to him, Mercy Project is a music evangelism and humanitarian project which comprises the ‘Live Recording Concert’ of his ‘Mercy Project’ album and ‘The Mercy Project Evangelism Drive’.
This Easter Sunday will mark the beginning of the Mercy Project with the live recording concert of my forthcoming album, the Mercy Project, from which all proceeds will used to finance the second phase of the project, The Mercy Project Evangelism Drive. The evangelism drive is geared towards the condemned in prisons, poor, needy and unsaved in remote villages of Ghana.
The drive will also include donations to prisons, the poor and needy all over and the message my team will be spreading is about God’s love and mercy which saved all humanity through the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus,’ he added.
Cwasi Oteng, affectionately called ‘Church Boy’, is the latest kid-on-the-block when it comes to Ghana’s contemporary gospel music. He comes out as a passionate young man anointed of God to reach his generation through the ministry of music; bringing hope, encouragement, life and transformation to many in his city, nation and the world at large.
Residing in the city of Tema, Ghana, Cwasi officially joined the gospel music circuit as a ministering artiste just last year with his highly inspirational and much talked-about debut album, ‘Blessed Are They’. The album made huge an impact in the contemporary gospel circuit in Ghana and other countries where the album went such that he has been described by many as another rare gospel great to have come from Ghana following similar paths of Sonnie Badu, Danny Nettey and the others. The album brought the message of worship, love and obedience to God to the fore in hits such as ‘Okurayen’ and ‘Look into your eyes’.
Cwasi will record live his new album, ‘The Mercy Project’ under his Jam Pack Records Inc this Sunday but will release the album later in the year together with DVD’s of his ministrations and concerts. Jam Pack Records is his own registered and run record label which is responsible for all Cwasi Oteng creations: projects, concerts , albums, DVD’s and music evangelism.
Come 4th April, 2010, Easter Sunday at 4pm, the Mercy Project Live Recording Concert, will be staged at the Tema Community 8 Lighthouse Chapel and with a gate fee of GHc 10.00 one would not only have an opportunity of enjoying a night of anointed musical praise, worship and thanksgiving from Cwasi Oteng and the Flo Rivas, Nii Okai, Ps. Helen Yawson, Ike Nanor, Mega Praise and the Passion Way Crew but would also be supporting an evangelism drive whilst taking home a free CD of the Mercy Project single, ‘But for His Mercy’.
‘I invite you to support an evangelism and humanitarian drive to prisons and the remote areas of Ghana especially where the poor, needy and unsaved abound by purchasing tickets for the concert. However, anyone who is again touched to help the poor, needy and lost with regard to this project whether attending the concert or not can donate anything: food supplies, clothes, toiletries, educational materials, etc... All donations can be sent to Sunny FM off the Ring Road and on the Kanda Overpass or the concert venue before, during or after the concert,’ Cwasi finally implored.
