Singers with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir were featured performers at the seventh annual Airtel Adom Praiz concert last Friday where 20 vocalists and five musicians represented the world-renowned 200-member choir.

The day before the concert at the Perez Dome, the New York City-based performers met with employees of the event’s major sponsor, smartphone network Airtel Ghana, and sang some of the Brooklyn Tabernacle’s hit songs; after which staff took selfies with the singers before they headed to sound check.

Come Friday night, the enthusiastic group of singers, ranging in age from 20 to 60, were prayed up and ready to worship with the people of Accra who roared in praise as they watched the Brooklyn Tabernacle performers take the stage.

The Brooklyn Tabernacle singers, who were dressed in African inspired outfits, set the tone as they called on the presence of God before starting their performance. “It’s all about Jesus, and not about the Brooklyn Tabernacle,” one of the lead singers told the congregation.

Throughout the night they sang songs from both their new and older albums, such as “We Come Rejoicing,” which was a crowd favorite.

Some of the most electrifying performances of the night were the songs “He’s Alive,” “Said I Wasn’t Gonna Tell Nobody,” and the calypso number “It Is So.”
