Sing it loud and win

01 February 2019 | Art and Entertainment

A hymnal song awards show for northern based music lovers is set to take place for the first time this year in March. Organised by businessman and singer Ndali Nenkavu, the event is aimed at encouraging choral music appreciation and provide entertainment for Ongwediva.

Nenkavu has plans to host the awards at a banquet at the Ongwediva Trade Fair Hall, during which all the choirs and top congregation leaders, and veteran choir members in the different choirs in Namibia, will be honoured.

“This competition will pull lots of youth towards church activities and this will curb violence in society. It will be a good opportunity to educate the participants on how to sing notes which in return brings back harmonies in singing,” he said.

As part of the competition, competitors will be given two existing hymnal songs to sing and one that they have to compose under a theme they will be given. There are eight categories including Best Youth Choir, Best Matured (Elders Choir), Best Instrumental Choir, Best Instrumental Solo, Best Male Solo, Best Female Solo, Best Gender Balanced Choir and ELCIN's recognised Pillars of Music - alive and dead.

The organiser is currently seeking assistance to pull off this event successfully for his community.

“This is an initiative that will go a long away and it will be meaningful especially for the youth. Financial support and key stakeholders' involvement to support and promote this important and unique Namibian event are needed,” he said.

Contact Nenkavu at +26481 258 1073 for further information.
