November 22, 2010 – Gospel music fans were treated to an evening of inspiration and spiritual satisfaction as 11 Grammy award winner Cece Winans performed at the Bomas of Kenya.
The 46 year old renowned songstress put her audience to tears with her inspirational delivery and powerful music.
Performing her best picks which included ‘Mercy said no’, ‘More than what I wanted’ and ‘Pray,’ Cece was bound to usher the audience into the presence of God.
Cece is indeed a case of a calling well pursued as her Mezzo-Soprano voice moved many, not leaving behind Bishop Margaret Wanjiru who could not cut back tears of joy and praise.
Ida Odinga, Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, and Ferdinand Waititu, the M.P for Embakasi were also present, and so were D.J Pinye, Achieng Abura and Wahu.
The event was curtain raised by Kambua performing ‘Nishikilie,’ Alice Kamande singing ‘Wewe pekee’, Jemimah Thiong’o of the hit song ‘Mwenye Baraka.’ and Neema Ntalel belted out a couple of her best picks.
The stunning Mercy Masika also put the crowd on their feet, dancing to her all time favourite, ‘Milele.’ Tusker project fame’s sweetheart Elizabeth Gaga also gave the crowd a huge surprise as she performed a cordial hymn, Hallelujah.
Keeping the programme in line were Big Tedd and R-kay who emceed throughout the event.
The 5-hour praise and worship experience came to a close at midnight with the awe-inspiring Cece performing ‘It ain’t over.’ Perhaps we will be seeing a lot of her in the future, as organizers say she was immensely pleased with the outcome of the concert, describing it as one of her best yet.
