International gospel recording artiste Vashawn Mitchell has been booked as the headline act for the fourth staging of the 'Come Celebrate Jesus' gospel concert , which will be staged at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James this Saturday.

According to Donald Brooks, the organiser of the concert, which is renowned for showcasing top-flight gospel acts over the years, this year's event is poised to be bigger and better than all the previous stagings.

"We seek to get better each year, and I can safely say that with the line-up that we have in place, there is indeed a blessing awaiting all our patrons," said Brooks. "This is not just about entertainment, but also to bring an awakening and hope through worship."

In addition to Mitchell, who is an award-winning worship leader and songwriter, the concert will also feature international recording artiste Kevin Downswell, the anointed Adrian Cunningham, Sandra Brooks, and the ever-pleasing Kay Morris. There will also be a special appearance by 'Joshua Generation' - the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission's Children Finalists Ramone Watson and Anique Morris.

As is customary, part of the proceeds from the concert will go to needy charities. This year, the recipients will be the New Vision Children's Home, The Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill, and the Women's Centre.
