Launched recently, the True Worship Summit New Artist Showcase (TWNAS) is a very exciting and unique inclusion in True Worship series of events and activities for 2018. The TWNAS ‘competition’ will provide an opportunity for both aspiring and established unsigned artists to win the music opportunity of a lifetime.
True Worship Summit is an Annual European Conference set to make its official debut in London from the 8th – 10th March 2018.

For the very first time, Europe will see the likes of Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton, Marvin Sapp, Kim Burrell, Kiki Sheard and Donald Lawrence alongside Muyiwa, Noel Robinson, Bazil Meade of LCGC, Mark Beswick, Lurine Cato and other top UK talent across the three days.
Prizes for the winner of New Artist Showcase amount to a whopping £50,000 and include a recording contract, international distribution deal, album recorded in Toronto, Canada, lead single produced by Fred Hammond (pictured above), vocal coaching by Kim Burrell, album release concert, photoshoot, website and music video for the lead single.
“The True Worship New Artist Showcase allows us to kick-start something rather special in 2018. Not only does it allow us to showcase the best that the UK has to offer but it allows giants in the gospel industry to pour into some of our very own through their artistry and ministry”, says event organiser and artist Michael Agyei.
He added, “Many doors have been opened thanks to this conference and we are just excited to be able to extend the opportunity where it didn’t exist before.”
There are a total of 5 Stages to the competition, starting with artists being asked to create and submit two video entries of songs by any of the overseas guest artists for True Worship Summit 2018 namely Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Kierra Sheard, Kim Burrell, Donald Lawrence, Israel Houghton.
The Stages continue through to judging and shortlisting with the top 3 finalists announced by 5th March. At the True Worship Summit, all 3 finalists will perform an original song after which the winner will be announced. The winner will also perform live at the celebration concert.
