God’s Children’s Got Talent: RCCG Presents Christian Children’s Talent Show
April 22, 2014 – God’s Children’s Got Talent: RCCG Presents Christian Children’s Talent Show
Organisers of the God’s Children’s Got Talent, the pioneer Christian children’s talent hunt programme initiated by the City of David parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (Province 4), have revealed that this year’s edition will be a complete departure from the previous ones.
Now in its quarter final stage, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Head of Apapa family, said this year’s edition was designed to provide a credible platform for the celebration of talents in God’s children. “God’s Children’s Got Talent was borne out of the need to help identify and nurture the diverse talents available in children across the Province,” he said.
He further revealed that the scope of this year’s contest would include a variety of musical instruments, arts, singing and dancing, among others.
Marketing consultant and chairman, Advertising Practitioners Council, Mr. Lolu Akinwunmi, who gave the opening remarks at an earlier event, said: ‘GCGT tells a powerful story by both stimulating and harnessing children’s talents and bringing their dreams to fruition. In my view, this is another tool for social development and I encourage many brands to participate.
”Two of the major differentiators for this year’s edition are the scope of coverage, as season four of GCGT had other UK and US-based RCCG Apapa parishes participating. Winners in this year’s competition would get up to N22m prizes, comprising cash prizes, talent development packages and musical equipments.”
Some of the judges include foremost music and media personalities such as Joke Silva, Sir Nwokedi of Muson Centre and Tosyn Bucknor, among others.
