One of the biggest gatherings on the gospel events calendar, August Worship will go virtual on Sunday, August 30, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
This edition will also serve as the launch for the much-awaited Healing Stream album of the ever dynamic gospel music gem, Eric Jeshurun.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic and protocols put in place, the event will be streamed live on GHone TV, Praise TV, Homebase TV, and on the Eric Jeshurun YouTube Channel.
According to Jeshrun, this is the team’s first virtual edition and it’s really exciting to have the whole world connect together. “I feel this year’s event has a whole international feel to it, with artists from all over the world, Canada, Germany, Nigeria and of course Ghana,” he said.
Talking about the Healing Stream album, he said, “it’s what I have been working on for the past 5years. I felt a strong restriction and opposition until this year. There were times when files will mistakenly go missing etc but we are here now…and am really excited. I feel the world needs healing from all the happenings of the past few months,” Jeshurun said.
On the challenges encountered, he said there had been a lot of work, especially with production, adding that It is not easy financing as well as promoting a work of art or ministry here in Africa but once its God’s calling, it must be obeyed for He supplies.
“I featured some of the best musicians in Africa like Nathaniel Bassey, Joe Mettle, Irene Logan, and Efe Grace, and there is a blend of gospel genres, songs to dance to, some to reflect, some to worship with and some for encouragement and comfort,” he revealed.
The album was produced by Eric Jeshrun, Francis Kwaku Osei, Billy Selasie, and Dave Da Music Box.
