Jonathan McReynolds Returns for Barbados Gospelfest 2018

Jonathan McReynolds, whose incredible voice electrified the audience at the Capita Financial Laughter & Jazz last year, is returning for Barbados Gospelfest 2018. This time, Jonathan is will captivate patrons attending Courts One Awesome Day in association with Life 97.5 FM, the grand finale event of the annual festival, which will take place at the Farley Hill National Park on May 27.

Adrian Agard, Executive Producer of Barbados Gospelfest said: “What was apparent from Jonathan’s appearance in Barbados last year was that his appeal to people crosses generations, cultures and musical tastes.  This is exactly what we hope to achieve through our artiste ministers each year as we reach out to touch the lives of those who come into contact with the festival. We’re truly blessed to have been able to engage Jonathan to minister in Barbados for Gospelfest 2018 and we look forward to welcoming him back to Barbados and to a new venue at Farlet Hill National Park.”

A native of Chicago, USA, Jonathan is a Grammy and Stellar Awards nominee, and winner of a Dove Award for his album “Life Music: Stage Two”. About himself and his music, he says: “My albums are about being authentic and genuine, pure and transparent. That’s who I try to be as a person, I’m direct, I’m blunt. I’m not a fan of church clichés and 'Christian-ese'. Life Music is concerned with showing others and reminding myself how the Faith doesn’t just fit every part of life, but should frame every part of life.”

Barbados Gospelfest is an annual production of Gospelfest (Barbados) Inc. Envisaged to be the Caribbean's Premiere Christian Music and Arts Festival, Barbados Gospelfest promotes the life-changing impact of God in the lives of all those that come into contact with the festival. Now in its 26th year, Gospelfest features leading local, regional and international Gospel artistes over the duration of the festival which will run from May 19 to 27, 2018.
