“After two tremendously successful editions of Unity in the City, we plan to do more to empower the next generation to live a life of hope and purpose, this led to the birth of the Unity Teen Camp,” said Antoinette Ennis, event organizer.

“Our vision is to transform lives and impact cities by executing mega faith-based events that are uplifting and motivating. We have revolutionized the gospel music industry and the event is creating history with a stellar combination of live music, comedy and dance with world class production at Unity in the City Gospel concerts. The event has broken many records and has quickly become the most anticipated gospel event in the Caribbean” she shared.

Tasha Cobbs, the Motown recording artiste, who is known for her powerful, soulful vocals is expected to win souls ministering songs like ‘I’m Getting Ready,’ ‘You Know My Name’ and ‘Your Spirit.” She has been a powerful force in gospel music since the release of her 2012 Motown single ‘Break Every Chain’ that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Gospel chart. Her debut album ‘Grace’ spent a full year in the top ten of the Billboard Gospel album chart. She has since released numerous albums including her live album ‘Heart. Passion. Pursuit: Live At Passion City Church’ that generated a historic 2 million streams in one week.

Tasha, a Gospel Music Award (GMA), Dove and Stellar Award winner for Gospel Artist of the Year has attracted crossover success, teaming with hip-hop mega star Nicki Minaj with the radio friendly single ‘I’m Getting Ready’ that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart when it was first released in 2017. The song has garnered more than 7 million streams to date.

Earlier this year Tasha’s star power was on display when she was invited to perform at the 20th annual NFL Super Bowl Gospel celebration, a night of praise, fellowship and inspirational messages that brought together artists, athletes and other celebrity guests at the Atlanta Symphony Hall. She is currently the worship leader at Relentless Church, led by popular pastor John Gray.

Ennis indicated that more international and local performers will be announced at an upcoming media launch, slated for the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston next Tuesday, July 16th. A US press launch will be held on Monday, July 29 in Time Square, Manhattan, New York City.

Unity In The City 2019 is sponsored in part by Best Dressed Chicken, The Jamaica Tourist Board, Hipro, KFC, Digicel, World Brand, Fame 95 FM, TVJ, Hitz 92 FM and Yummy Bakery Jamaica.
