Last year, Dr Tumi filled Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg at the inaugural Gathering of Worshippers. He has since released the live CD and DVD recording of the concert.
The popular South African gospel artist was joined on stage by South Africa’s first Idols winner, Heinz Winckler and Lungi Ndala, among other supporting acts who gave stellar performances.
“God was healing people as we worshipped. Glory be to God. I am both touched and moved by the support from everybody who attended. God was with us. Part of the success of the event was partnering with churches and getting over 300 churches involved in the campaign leading up to #GOW2018,” Dr Tumi says of the event’s success.
He has now set his sights on the third edition of the concert for 2019.
“Truly the sky is the limit. I dream of bigger stages and bigger audiences to spread the Gospel and worship with fellow believers. I’m encouraged by the success of GOW2018 and I know that 2019 will only be massive. God is with us.”
