travis-greene.jpgKnown and loved for an impressive body of praise and worship songs, Grammy nominee and multiple awards winning gospel artiste, Travis Greene, brought the curtains down in impeccable style at Easter Monday's staging of Unity in the City.

Clearly this gospel show has its crowd and they were present long before the 6:00PM start time and seemed to stream in endlessly throughout the evening. With a sold-out platinum, gold and VIP sections right on the field in front of the hi-tech looking stage, and a grandstand almost full to capacity, the stage was set to create unity in Kingston city.

Showing his musical ability, Travis Greene strummed his guitar and then played the keyboard as he truly belted out new age gospel favourites interspersed with an old favourite, Jesus Paid It all. Among the songs Greene performed were Made a Way, See the Light and a reggae remix of Intentional. Full of more sedate worship rather than the over-the-top praise, Greene, brought on his wife to give a testimony of God's goodness in the safe delivery of their son, who doctors had recommended be aborted at 21 weeks.


Among the acts billed for the show were heavyweights Grammy award winners Israel Houghton and JJ Hairston, complemented by top-rated local acts who have also made their name on the international scene.

Houghton and his New Breed band delivered hits songs including Here I Am to Worship, Trading my Sorrows and I Am Not Forgotten. Hairston and his Youthful Praise choir made souls sway with songs like Great Is Our God, You Deserve It and Great and Mighty God.

did favourites like Back to the Owner and Bible Addict. But he also ministered about how God saved him from a life of mischief and purposeless.

High-energy sets also came from DJ Nicholas, Kevin Downswell and Jermaine Edwards. Downswell performed tracks including If It's Not You, Already Done and All the Way. The vibrant sound of new gospel continued with Edwards who sang favourites like Nah Bow, Beautiful Day and Hallelujah.

The huge crowd showed their appreciation for all the acts and seen in the audience was gospel artiste, Judy Mowatt, who told Yardflex in an interview after the concert that she enjoyed herself thoroughly.

"This concert could not miss me. When I heard the line-up I knew I just had to be here and I am certainly happy that I came. I enjoyed myself and I was blessed," she said.
