Gospel music group, the Conquerors 7, will tonight perform at the Academy of Music launch the first of its Collaborate or Die Movement meant to bring Bulawayo gospel artists together.
In an interview with NewsDay yesterday, co-organiser of the event Gerald Ndlovu said the event would create a platform for gospel artists to collaborate.
The concert will be graced by artists such as Quietrest, Let them Know, Celeste and there will be a surprise gospel guest group from Cape Town. Listeners would experience a different set-up from the usual non-collaborative stance taken by most gospel artists, said Ndlovu.
Ndlovu said the event was being organised by Conquerors 7, who after realising that gospel artists did not often work together, decided to make sure that gospel artistes come together in a move to support each other.
Over the past few years, artists have not been working together and this has led to some not succeeding, but as we begin the Collaborate or die movement, under the theme Its Gospel Time, we want to do away with the notion of artists doing their own thing. We want artists to work together and make a difference.
Ndlovu said the event would begin at 6pm and end at 9pm.
We are trying our best to involve artists in their different genres and styles.
