Gospel star Herty Corgie named in 2019 CGMA Female Artist of the Year category

GCMA

She has diligently been honing her craft and now industry people are taking notice.

Gospel artiste and philanthropist Herty Corgie has been nominated in the Female Artist of the Year USA category of the Contemporary Gospel Music Awards 2019.

Herty is vying for the trophy as is Annistar, Toya Love, Ruth Seal, Terricann Music, Jane Rita and Pastor Esinu.

On becoming aware of her nomination, Corgie submitted on her social media platforms:

“What an Amazing God we serve! I have been nominated for CGM Awards – Ghana 2019.”

Contemporary Gospel Music Awards (CGM AWARDS) Ghana scheme is designed to foster the development of the Ghanaian contemporary gospel music industry.

Organisers reckon the contemporary gospel industry needs necessary attention to enhance its rapid growth and development in the country and in the diaspora.

Musicians who released songs, albums, videos or did any kind of project that fell under any of the published categories was required to send in their nominations by email for consideration.

The award is mainly a public choice award which allows the public 70% voting power to decide who wins what. The other 30% power lies in the bosom of board.

Herty Corgie executed the ‘Overflow Concert’ at the Grace 2 Grace Centre in the US on June 2. The Christian music event at the 7911 Braygreen Road, Laurel MD 20707 drew in gospel music notables including J.J Hairtson, Emmanuel Smith (The Voice-UK finalist), Esinu and Obenewa.

Kindly use this link to vote for Herty Corgie: https://www.speakupp.com/web/328447-3675/

In what some have described as the worship experience of the year, the concert was chiefly about expressing love for God and acknowledging his Supremacy.

Corgie had offered ‘Glory’, a tune edifying God few weeks prior to the concert and right after the concert impressively offered two new singles ‘Yahweh’ and ‘Ololufe’ on June 14.

At the June 2 event, Herty’s new singles were recorded live and just a week ago released the live video of the ‘Ololufe’ song on her YouTube page. Plans are in the works to release her songs and video on DVD.

Folks can support Corgie’s ministry by purchasing her music here: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/hertycorgie3

Gospel music enthusiasts, pastors and church workers are encouraged to vote for Herty Corgie to win the Female Artist of the Year USA.

It’s now only a matter of time before Herty Corgie’s true musical depth is experienced by all. She thus needs all the material and financial support she can get to continue churning out soul-stirring contemporary gospel music that inspires and transforms lives.

FRED KYEI MENSAH WRITES: Joe Mettle holds successful Wind of Revival Concert

Joe Mettle 1

Contrary to the notion that Gospel Music Concerts are not patronized because of organizational challenges, logistics, different Christian religious doctrines, venues, sponsorship, etc, if well planned like the one I witnessed today, patronage can be good.

ATTENDANCE

It was well patronized. Patrons with VIP tickets were treated with gifts. The house was full. Security was top notch. Almost everyone was screened before entry. A lot of celebrities and top Gospel acts, graced the occasion.

STAGE, LIGHTING, LED

It was so on point with little or minor hitches. Coordination was good with every screen working.

SOUND, PERFORMANCES AND GENERAL OBSERVATION.

The sound was good though occasionally the sound engineer forgot to open the front of the house speakers.
The performances started around 5.25 pm with Kyei Mensah doing the opening act followed by Carl Clottey and Isaac Ackah, the son of the late Jewel Ackah. Then came Qwesi Oteng and Ceecy Twum. They did well.

Joe Mettle didn’t disappoint at all. For about an hour, he and his talented instrumentalists wowed the audience with songs after songs. Gospel Music normally flows with worship songs and you can trust Joe Mettle, the only Gospel Artiste to have won the VGMA artiste of the year which is the coveted one. He invited his visiting Gospel musician friend, Jonathan Nelson from the USA who spread the holy spirit with his soothing voice to the admiration of the audience.

KODA added spice on the show with his vintage performance. He did so well. The show closed around 10.15 pm with another set of performances from Joe Mettle.

CONCLUSION 
Joe Mettle made a fervent appeal about how Gospel Musicians suffer to get sponsorships for such programs and his concert virtually had no “major sponsors”. Because of doctrinal differences, it is very hard for “Christians ” to help themselves. Congrats to all hustling Gospel Musicians who struggles to put up their own concerts. See you in the next edition.
