Celebrated international gospel musician, Don Moen will headline a mega gospel concert to mark Ghana’s 60th Independence anniversary and the musician has revealed how much he has been paid for the concert.
The multiple award winning musician, behind several renowned hit songs, including ‘God Will Make a Way’, will perform at the International Gospel Concert on March 7 at the Independence Square and calls it “a great comeback”.
According to Don Moen, he has already been paid 300,000 dollars out of his 1 million dollars (Over 4 million Ghana cedis) minimum charge; serving as 30% down payment outlined in the contract.
The full complement of artistes for the concert is yet to be announced by the Planning Committee.
Jefferson Sackey, Chairman of the Media and Publicity Sub Committee of ‘Ghana 60 Years On’ planning committee explained in an interview with Myjoyonline.com that the concert is a private initiative.
“This is actually a private initiative. A group contacted us that they are in the process of bringing in Don Moen and we thought that it is a laudable idea to have him in the country especially as we are celebrating 60 years of existence as a nation,” he said.
This will not be Don Moen’s first visit to Ghana. He has graced several shows in the country including a two day concert in December 2009 at the Independence Square and the Accra International Conference Centre respectively.
