Bethel Revival Choir, an award-winning Gospel Music Ministry has once again hit another huge milestone in their music career.
The group, which has become the toast of many music lovers, has grabbed a nomination at the 2019 edition of the All Africa Music Awards(AFRIMAs).

”We are so grateful to God, to our amazing leaders, fans and everyone.” they added.
The AFRIMA 2019 nomination comes after the group was recently awarded as the overall Best Music Group of the year at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
It was the first time a Gospel Group won that category since the past 20 years the award has been in existence.
Before the VGMA, Bethel Revival Choir had won three categories at the 2019 edition of the 3 Music Awards.
It won Gospel Song of the Year, Gospel Act of the Year and Best Group of the Year.
The Choir is under the Global Evangelical Church (GEC), a vibrant Bible-believing Church that believes in the full manifestation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Though the Bethel Revival Choir has been ministering for some ten years now, the group gained mainstream recognition after the release of their second album titled ‘Akpe’ in 2018.
‘Akpe’ is a 15-track classic album with songs such as the popular ‘Agbadza Gospel Medley’ and ‘Vovome’ featuring Joe Mettle. It has other songs such as ‘Mawu Ana’ among others.
The group has a unique way of picking old traditional Ghanaian Christian songs and reproducing them with a contemporary flavor.
The award show will take place in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, 26th of October, 2019 and will honour some of the world’s top African celebrities, artistes, artistes’ managers, producers, video directors, DJs and cultural influencers.
