Caroline Mbithi, one of the most adored and celebrated Kenyan gospel musicians based in Boston USA, successfully launched her new album, Destined, on Sunday September 23rd. The well- attended event took place at the Regis College auditorium in Weston city, Massachusetts.
The event drew large crowds from several African countries including Uganda, Tanzania, DRC, Rwanda, Burundi and Malawi. Thanks to the statewide publicity and excellent organization skills of the planning committee.
Carol has been doing the gospel circuit in Massachusetts for a long time. Her fame as an entertainer grew from her budding years in Kenya and blossomed when she became a sought-after performer in churches across the state. In the past, she has teamed up with other musicians from the greater East African region, most notably the Mwangaza Band based in Chelsea, Massachusetts.
The curtain raiser was a harvest of songs performed by various artists stretching from East to West Africa. Georgie, aka Ras Preach, belted out his gospel tunes in true hip-hop style to the amusement of the audience. Ola, from Nigeria was not left behind as he added to the flavor of the musical mix. Also in attendance was a dance troupe from Kansas City, Missouri and CSI from Kenya, among many others.
