Jason Mighty, the 31 year-old gospel reggae singer is "humbled" by his 2013 Temple of Praise UK Tour. "At my very first event in the UK, my oldest sister Julia got saved. She and I stood there in the middle of the stage, just crying and hugging each other. The Lord healed me and my family before using me to bring healing to others," Mighty said.

With the tour over, tomorrow he will have his CD release party for Jason Mighty - Temple of Praise at New Life Worship Centre, 148 Constant Spring Road, St Andrew. The event will feature some of the biggest names in gospel reggae music, including DJ Nicholas, Ryan Mark and Kevin Downswell.

While in the UK, after making stops in Kent, Manchester, Leeds, Derby and several other locations, Mighty said one of the greatest surprises was an invitation from Bishop John Francis at Ruach City church. Bishop Francis asked Mighty to headline Ruach City's Gospel Spring Fest 2013, along with James Fortune & FIYA, Anita Wilson and Muyiwa & Riversongz.

Wilson, a Grammy-nominated singer, said she was "looking forward" to Mighty's ministry at Ruach's Kilburn branch, located at the historic Gaumont State Theatre. After the show ended, one member of the 7,000-strong crowd tweeted "Ruach City Church `Ketch Ah Fire!'"

"All I can say is God is good. It may sound like a cliché, but all I see when I look back at this tour is the goodness of God. From Bishop Francis to my tour manager, Denver, to all the DJ's who helped to promote my ministry and to every single pastor, promoter and supporter of my ministry, I extend my sincere thanks. It is extremely encouraging to see the gospel reggae fraternity uniting to spread the message through the music," Mighty said.
