BELIZE CITY, Tues. Apr. 4, 2023

Award-winning worship leader and singer, Sinach is scheduled to perform at the Belize City Council- sponsored “Holy Week Revival Concert” on Wednesday, April 5, at Digi Park on Newtown Barracks.

The international singer made her arrival in Belize City on Tuesday of this week, where she attended a special media press briefing at Vino Tinto Restaurant on Marine Parade alongside the Belize City Mayor, His Worship Bernard Wagner.

During Holy Week, an annually celebrated week in Belize, it is customary for families who are on break for the holidays to participate in festive activities, or at least that was the case before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic..

This year (three years later) the Belize City Council held a “ Hot Cross Bun Fest”, that took place over the weekend and included a Kids’ Easter Egg Hunt and a Splash Zone, and is also now hosting a Christian Concert.

Belize has hosted its share of concerts and celebrity artists throughout the years, which for the most part, has been a success.

“It’s not the traditional way of concerts in the city. We’ve been through a lot as a city and as a country, and we wanted to have this forum or this phase where we could be ministered to as a city and as a country,” said Wagner. “… We need to get back to our roots, because we are a God-fearing nation,” he said.

Sinach is a Nigerian singer and songwriter and senior worship leader. She has made history by becoming the first female Christian artist to top billboard charts under Christian Songwriter for 12 weeks in a row. She has released 9 studio albums which have earned her multiple awards, including a GMA Dove Award.

Some of Sinach’s hit songs include “Way Maker”, “I Know Who I Am”, “Great Are You Lord”, “Rejoice”, and “Awesome God.”

Her scheduled performance has drawn the attention of the Christian community countrywide who have been anticipating her arrival with excitement.

Sinach has similarly been looking forward to this event, explaining to local reporters what she hopes to achieve during her time in Belize.

“We are not entertaining, but ministering to the people, knowing that God has a plan for everyone in Belize. Belize is special, and if God would put it in your heart to put on this program, that means that it’s their time for God to minister to them. I’m just looking forward to ministering the heart of God to the people, and to comfort them and inspire them and inspire their faith in God. I’m looking forward to that,” said Sinach.

In regards to the concert location that can become pretty chaotic due to large businesses in the vicinity, Mayor Wagner has assured the public that appropriate measures are being put in place.

“We have a great working relationship with the police, and we control our traffic officers, our special constables, so we know we’ll have a full-fledged team out here between tonight and tomorrow, really ensuring that there is smooth traffic flow in and out of the city,” said Wagner.

The Revival Concert is a two-day free-admissions event that will take place Tuesday and Wednesday night of this week, and so far, will include a diverse set of performers, from English to Spanish to Garifuna groups.

And according to the Mayor, he is anticipating seeing an influx of Belizeans countrywide and internationally on both concert nights.
