MY WORLD - Gospel Festival Tubize

more participants here

On Saturday my friends and I went to the Gospel Festival in Tubize a little town near Waterloo.

We arrived quiet early and there were not yet many people, but a little later more and more arrived.

Women from the Congo had prepared delicious typical Congo plates and also sold fabrics and jewelery. Besides was an Oxfam stand, where I bought a little keyring.

The place filled up with young and old

and the police was also there to listen and chat with the others

The first one we listened to was a Rap singer, I am not that much a friend of Rap, but the text of the song was real good. He sang in French.

This girl had a wonderful voice, in fact she didn't even need a microphone !

and then came the best ! This group sang several songs and had a lot of success.

I recorded one minute of a song, just to show you how it was, although the sound is not very good.

We had a real nice afternoon and met quiet a few Americans who had come here to listen to the songs.
