    Fun in the Son 2006 Exceeding Expectations

    by: General | No Comments »

    The sounds of praise and worship rang out across the grassy expanse of Hope Gardens on Saturday afternoon as the fifth staging of the Fun in the Son grand concert unfolded before a huge crowd.

    The music ministry of Family Church on the Rock set the tone with moving renditions of Lord I lift Your Name on High but the early section’s first big spark came from the youth ministry from Power of Faith put on a scintillating mime display to Byron Cage’s The Presence of the Lord is Here.

    Other early standouts included Jason Mighty, Lubert Lewis, Ryan Mark and Gallimore (who went from a scathing condemnation of homosexuality and same-sex marriages to an inspiriational new song, From Brokeness to Victory).

    Amid a surprise ordination as Minister -courtesy of Bishops Everton Thomas and Peter Morgan, DJ Nicholas gave an even more fiery performance than usual, laced with declarations of faith and exhortations to the believers to make themselves heard.

    Junior Tucker, still very much the music minister but now moving in the office of a pastor, preached to the audience and succeeded in winning many new hearts to the faith, no doubt partly evidenced by the developments in his life.

    Absence, it’s said, makes the heart grow fonder, and musical hearts had apprently grown even more fond of Papa San, performing in Jamaica for the first time since moving to the US. And he fulfilled their wishes in a manner that even amazed himself, as he would say after the event.

    Speaking to the Observer, Claudette Cooke of main sponsors Jamaica Broilers described the show as phenomenal. “It certainly exceeded our expectations in respect of the turnout and also that all the performers rose to a new level.” The company has supported the event from its inception.”

    Continuing, she said, “It was not just the songs- but there seemed to be tremendous personal growth and new levels of maturity. We want to be invovled in projects that foster core values – young peole are perpetrators and victims of violent crime.”

    For some 15,000 adults and children of all ages last Saturday, violence was the furthest thing form their minds, the only forceful thing being the sounds of praise echoing across the plain.
