Gospel singers Rhoda Isabella and John Mark Wiggan are among the headline artistes scheduled for the second staging of the Walk by Faith concert that will be held on December 9 at the Portmore Heart Academy Auditorium in St Catherine.

Other gospel acts scheduled to performance include H.U.M.B.L.E., Perry In Christ, Donnica, Ayana Bonner and Gianna Williams.

Organiser, Gerald A. Gordon, shared that this staging is a fulfilment of a commitment to making the event an annual one.

“This year, we have focused on enhancing the Walk by Faith Concert event to ensure that everyone who attends has an unforgettable experience. We have added the Walk by Faith Village, which will feature a variety of vendors including Wear Faith merch, Stewarts Automotive, and different food vendors,” Gordon said.

He added that they are looking forward to providing an unforgettable experience where attendees will feel that they have received great value for their money.

“Our journey began in August 2022, with a night that still resonates in the hearts of many; a night of pure worship. It was a time when believers from all walks of life came together under a starlit sky to lift their voices in unity and proclaim the glory of the divine. It was more than just a musical event; it was a spiritual encounter that left an indelible mark on all who were present,” Gordon said.

The Walk By Faith concert is inspired by the words of Hebrews 11:1, “ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Their mission he said is to create a platform where faith takes centrestage.

“We believe that worship is a powerful instrument of faith, a way to connect with the divine and experience the unseen. Our concerts are not just about music; they are about a community coming together to express their faith, hope, and love through worship,” Gordon said, adding that plans are already in place to host the third staging of the event.
