Once again, International Artiste and Minister, Chevelle Franklyn prepares for her annual trip to Lagos, Nigeria to minister at arguably the largest Gospel concert in the world with a expected crowd of over 500,000 people, This would be Chevelle third consecutive year at this grand event called 'The Experience'
'The Experience' is convened and hosted by Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House on the Rock, it is an interdenominational Gospel concert which features some of the best-known musical talents of our time. The event, which debuted in December 2006 with over 70,000 persons in attendance rapidly gained momentum at its second outing with a quantum leap in attendance of well over 250,000 people! With last year's unprecedented crowd estimated at 500,000, The Experience has now become known as the largest musical concert in Africa. Uniquely the Event runs through the night starting at 7.00pm and runs until 6am the following morning a colossal 11 hrs of uninterrupted prayer and live music!
And this is not just it, Chevelle will also be ministering in Calabar, Cross River State of Nigeria and later back again in Lagos at the 'Holy Ghost Prayer Night hosted by RCCG Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, This night attracts 3 million people, again arguably the largest Christian gathering in the world. In 1986, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian church of God, Pastor Enoch A Adeboye, said he asked for a birthday gift from God and requested for a miracle for each member of the church. He testifies that God then instructed him to invite everyone to a special meeting called the "Holy Ghost Service". This subsequently birthed the beginning of monthly Holy Ghost Nights in Lagos, Nigeria.
Chevelle holds a special love for Africa 'The Pleasant Land' and enjoys the diversity of the culture, the gifts and talents of the people and their intense passion and Love for the Lord. May 2010 saw Chevelle in South Africa for a annual conference and September saw Chevelle ministering at a Women's conference in Nairobi Kenya, she considers Africa her second home.
I am looking forward to 2011 with great expectation as God continues to open great and favourable doors and there are already talks of Australia, Zimbabwe and India…. 'For he has anointed me to minister to nations,' states a beaming but grateful Chevelle Franklyn.
