The coming of a King!!!

The second advent brings with it a feeling of festivity…..we are one week closer to something special, the birth of a KING.

This time of the year is emotionally charged, people are rushing to buy christmas presents, cleaning their houses for guests, making holiday plans etc……but it is also a time for reflection, and what better way to reflect than through music.

The Cape Cultural Collective once again treated us to a spectacular evening of Carols by Candlelight, these events are something special and I recommend it to everyone. You’ll walk away fulfilled, your heart will be warmed up and if you didn’t feel that christmas fever, after tonight I am sure a fire has been lit inside.

All artists brought something special to the evening, the audience sang and danced, went quiet and closed their eyes and listened taking in the moment. Seeing the young children from the Junior Rosa Choir was amazing, you could feel that they were enjoying themselves which is awesome.

The highlight for me were the group calling themselves Young At Heart, the golden voices of the group resonated through the historical church and once they were done we all knew for sure why we were there……to celebrate the birth of a KING.

It was a real blessing to sing Oh Holy Night under candlelight with people we barely even knew, that is what this season is about sharing and caring….just being human. The season for giving!!

O Holy Night
Mariah Carey
O holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels’ voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine o night
O night divine

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels’ voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine o night
O night divine

Ooh yes it was
Ooh it is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah
It was a holy holy holy, oh oh oh

Thank you to all the artists for bringing joy to our hearts, wishing you all a Merry Christmas and blessings for the new year.
