The "Nobody Greater" singer should score well with his string of hits which includes His Blood Still Works, My Worship Is for Real, Chasing After You, Turning Around for Me, God My God, Greatest Man, and You Reign.

In 2011, Mitchell received 11 Stellar Award nominations and won six trophies. He was also nominated for two Grammy Awards and two GMA Dove Awards. Mitchell follows another American gospel act, Ron Kenoly, who performed at last year's event at the same venue.

This year's event will also feature local acts such as Kevin Downswell, Adrian Cunningham, Sandra Brooks, Kay Morris, Joshua Generation, Ramone Watson and Anique Morris. Emcees include Markland "Action" Edwards, Nadine Blair and Rick Joyner.

Part proceeds from Come Celebrate Jesus, which is the brainchild of siblings, Donald and Rev Talsey Brooks, will go towards the Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill (CUMI), the New Vision Children's Home and the Women's Centre.
