A ‘healthy and uplifting’ entertainment option
Extravaganza Promotions is to host Festival of Praise, a gospel concert at City Hall on Easter Sunday.
The event will start at 6.30pm and is designed to bring the community together for “positive and uplifting vibes” and promote unity.
Joshua Boorman, promoter, is excited to expand the scope of his events to include a gospel event.
“Extravaganza Promotions has decided to express our versatility in events and have chosen to accommodate a gospel production,” he said.
“This event will cater to those who would generally not go to your regular party and to those uninterested in alcohol use. We look to provide a healthy and uplifting experience for the general public.”
Although called “Festival of Praise”, the event is not attached to any religion, Mr Boorman emphasised.
“This event is not religion based. Our aim is to bring a positive and enlightening experience of praise through music, while at the same time bringing exposure to our great musicians, singers and dancers in Bermuda.”
The event will be hosted by Sanchez Smith and the headliner for the night is Royalty, the 2023 Bermuda Idol.
There will also be several other local artists in the line-up, including Toni Morrison, Willard Burch, Jesse Seymour, Cush Evans and Whopper Benz.
“There is something for everyone to enjoy and we hope the community will come out to fellowship together,” Mr Boorman said.
“There has been an explosion of parties throughout the island, and we've made the observation that there has rarely been an event that caters to the gospel audience of Bermuda. This might not be as cool to some of my peers, but I’m stepping out in faith because I feel that this needed.”
Extravaganza Promotions is also looking for sponsors for the event to ensure that as many people as possible can attend.
“We don’t want the ticket price to be a deterrent for those who may not be able to afford it. So we are asking businesses or individuals who feel inclined to sponsor seats to reach out to us.”
Part proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Eliza DoLittle Society, which supports individuals and families with food insecurity.
“It has evolved into being more about supporting the community than just having a great event,” Mr Boorman added. “We want to fill every seat because the more funds we raise the more impact we can have.”
