The Fountain of Victory Church on Saturday celebrated six years of existence with a free music show which saw various artists performing at Kamuzu Stadium upper ground in Blantyre.
Dubbed The Breakout Music Festival, the event brought together people from all walks of life to praise the Lord through music.
Ethel Kamwendo-Banda, who was the surprise artist of the day, performed two of her popular songs; Mwandikondera and Usachoke. Mwandikondera is a song of praise to the Lord for the blessings of life while Usachoke is a song of encouragement to Christians to never give up their faith.
After her performance, Banda expressed her gratitude for being given a chance to perform.
She said: “I feel great to perform at this event. This is not my first time to perform at this event. The Fountain of Victory Church conducts these celebrations annually and this is my fourth time to perform.”
Shammah Sitola, popularly known as Shammah Vocals, also took to the stage performing his songs Daily and No Reverse.
No Reverse urges people not to look back in as far as their faith is concerned. On the other hand, Daily talks about the love between a man and woman and relating it to the love of God.
Sitola said he felt humbled as this was his first time to be invited by the church to perform at its annual celebrations.
Other artists who performed included Kamuzu Barracks Choir and Steve Muliya.
Speaking during the event, Fountain of Victory director of church growth Bishop Medram Chirwa said they hold the celebrations to thank God.
“The celebrations are part of thanksgiving to the Lord as he has seen us throughout the year. We have been observing the day since the establishment of the church,” said Chirwa.
The Fountain Victory Church was established in 2012. n
