The Port Elizabeth Opera House’s popular Music Concert Series returns to the Main Stage this April with the Gospel Edition featuring the finest Nelson Mandela Bay Gospel Artists! The soul enriching concert starring Nombongo Siyona, Andile B, Thembelani, Zodwa and featuring Sandile Mati and new Gospel sensation Tuni.
Nombongo’s love for singing was discovered at the tender age of 8 years whilst leading her Sunday School group in praise and worship. Having discovered Gospel Music as her true calling in 1996 she established the group ‘Heroes Of Faith’ and has never turned back and her star has continued to soar. In 2003 Nombongo released her debut album “Khuluma nam Nkosi’ followed by ‘Kufuphi Thixo Wam’ in 2006 which was produced by Mxolisi Mhlongo who has produced for Gospel super stars Dumi Mkokstad and Bethusile. Following the successes of her previous albums Nombongo in 2008 released her third album ‘uJesu Wam Uyaphila’ and shot and her released her popular dvd – a compilation of her chart topping hits and fan favourites, and her fourth album was released in 2014 ‘Ngizolibonga’. Nombongo is most proud of her community outreach work that she does throughout Nelson Mandela Bay and has been selected by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality as an ambassador. This Gospel Power House endeavours to bring joy to the broken hearted and provide solitude and strength through her music.
Andile B comes from a musical family with all his siblings in the music industry. As many of his counterparts
