It was an event that had the attendance of top people in Celestial Church from all walks of life. From different factions, the members of CCC all teemed to witness the one of the well-organised musical competitions in recent times held last Friday, 27, 10, 2017.
The event which had the trappings of aficionados in the music ministry of the church, revealed the potentials in the junior choir of Snr. Evang. Sunday Shofowora’s led Sharon Parish as they emerged winners of the Teenagers’ Choir Competition put together by Elim Crusaders International in conjunction with Joyful Noise Ministry.
Seyi Solagbade and one of the vibrant hands behind the Luli Concert, Gbenga Alabetutu all put their professionalism into play to deliver the prize to the choir which performed excellently. Seyi Olakigbe too was resourceful as a time Keeper/assistant judge.
According to the foremost composer, arranger, lyricist, saxophonist and singer, Oluseyi Solagbade, the chief Judge of the event, “the first harmony was rendered beautifully by Sharon Parish Choir, observing the accidentals, they tried as much as possible to apply basic way of singing classical music…Coming to the aspect of Sing Song, firstly, I so much appreciate the fact that this choir observed three basic ways of performance, Talent, Creativity and Sense of Application. The way they blended the genre with full maturity made me felt their musicianship. The precision was perfect coming again with rap to make the performance more relevance with 21st century style of music; this shows their sense of creativity.
Where I had an issue with them was when they tried to sing descant …a particular female got to a point that she was screaming but later got her part right. I think they can be more perfect if they continue to rehearse and do more of research, they scored above 90%”
