'Tehillah Experience' finally gets headline sponsor
AFTER blessing patrons with good music and performances, the annual Gospel concert, Tehillah Experience has also finally found grace with a headline sponsor for the first time since its inception eight years ago.
So come this year, Ohemaa Mercy and her team will work with Taabea Company Ltd as lead sponsor for the concert scheduled for Sunday, August 14 at the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) Calvary Temple, Spintex Road, Accra,
Speaking with Graphic Showbiz about the new sponsorship deal, Ohemaa Mercy pointed out that Tehillah Experience is one of the most patronised events but interestingly, the event hasn’t been blessed with any headline sponsor since it was started some eight years ago.
“Last week, Joe Mettle stoked discussions on corporate companies’ lack of support for the Gospel music fraternity.
"Truthfully, this lack of support is badly dealing with our shows but I thank God Taabea has come to support Tehillah Experience this year.
“It is a very good relief for my team and me and I pray other institutions come on board too.
“My team will testify to what we go through yearly to organise Tehillah Experience.
"Sometimes, the financial demands are so much that you would want to give up but then again, you remember the good purpose it is serving and you let that override the problems” she said.
Since its inception some eight years ago, according to Ohemaa Mercy, Tehillah Experience has not only served devotees of Gospel music good songs but it has also been an avenue for people to have divine encounters that have positively changed their lives.
With this year’s event, the reigning VGMA Gospel Song of the Year winner is very confident will record the highest stories of people being touched.
“My DM is full with stories of people whose lives have changed just because they attended Tehillah Experience and this has been my biggest inspiration,” the Ote Me Mu singer said.
This year’s Taabea Tehillah Experience is themed, Clouds of Glory and it will feature performances from renowned Gospel musicians including South Africa’s Benjamin Dube and Lebo Sekgobela and Ghana’s Joe Mettle, MOG, Efe Grace, Kofi Owusu Peprah, Ceccy Twum, Pastor Isaiah and Rama Antwi.
