As the stage is set to welcome the 19 contestants vying for the Top 5 of this year’s edition of ‘Making the Gospel Band’ on Sunday 24rd, at Kamthe Hotel Complex, emotions are being raised . NexDim was present at their first rehearsals on Friday 22nd, and it’s worth noting that the standards are absolutely high and competitive. Performances by Esther Oben , Leadsman, Aloysius, Shalom, and Phillip were remarkable while the others will have to work more on their vocals to measure up. There is still a glimmer of optimism looming in the atmosphere. It will be for the jury and the votes from the public to decide who goes through.
