It was the wish of each of the seven competing University Choirs to be the ultimate winner of the just ended University Gospel Choir of the Year competition. After 2 interesting rounds, Miotso Contemporary Mass Choir of Central University College, emerged the 2018 University Gospel Choir of the Year (UGCY 2018).
The Liberty Assemblies of God church witnessed a beautiful competition of University Chorals on Sunday 28thOctober 2018. By 5pm the event had started in full speed as the trio, The King’s Crew, a contemporary gospel artiste ministered back-to back and charged the atmosphere with so much talent and energy.
The first round of the competition gave each choir the opportunity to sing a song of their choice while the second part the choirs were tasked to blend a Ghanaian and a South African song to be sung under 4 minutes.
The atmosphere was indeed very charged as audiences from the participating Universities left no stone- unturned as they dished out their full support to their individual Universities.
Chaplaincy Mass Choir from the University of Education at Winneba and the Heralds of Praise from the University of Ghana, Logon, took the second and third places respectively.
As the winning package for the Ultimate Choir, Miotso Contemporary Choir won a whooping Ghc 3,000.00 with amazing products from Malta Guinness. For the second and third runner ups, Chaplaincy Mas Choir and the Heralds of Praise won Ghc 1,500.00 and Ghc 1,000.00 respectively alongside other exciting packages from Malta Guinness.
