Fantastic night out at the 5th Premier Gospel Awards hosted at the luxurious London Hilton, Park Lane, as the UK celebrated gospel music in style. Hosts Ibe & Cass kept the 1000 strong audience entertained throughout the night with nods to main sponsors The Jamaica Tourist Board and a country well known for happy times and ‘irie vibes’. There was talent in abundance as the many amazing performances showed, from Volney Morgan & New Ye to Michael Oyo, Efua B, Grace Tena, Anna Efah, Ryan Hylton, Niiella, Wes & Jordan, Triple O, Annatoria, Minister Taf and right through to headliners Tab Worship who took us to church and then some!
