Awesome Praise is a multi-national gospel concert inspired to orchestrate God’s praise in the nations. At its core, it presents a grand platform for gospel artists, church and independent choirs to come together in a cringe free environment to give high praise and worship to their first love. Performances include drama in its voiced and non-voiced art form. Illuminating quotes on Awesome Praise include:
