Over 20million shillings was collected, some cash while others pledged for the Cooper and G-way charity concert at Serena hotel on Easter Sunday.
The proceeds from the concert are an initiative to help children born with disabilities and specifically to EDYAC, (Empowerment of Disadvantaged Youth and Children) charity organization, which is a non-governmental, non-profit making Christian organisation dedicated to promoting the dignity of life of disadvantaged children through health care, nutrition and psycho-social support.
The concert kicked off at 7:00pm with Pablo as the emcee. He made jokes the entire night that kept the crowd at their toes.
Besides Cooper and Gway, the other headliner was Anthony Faulkner, an American gospel artiste, Philathonpolist and song writer. Guardian angel, glory and I trust you are some of the songs he performed and like Pablo said, Faulkner has been to Uganda more than any other American artiste and that if president Museveni takes a look at his passport, a district would be named after him.
The main man Cooper and his Gway group took to the stage at 8:30pm and straight away kicked off their performances with tracks like gyangu tugende, sibiwulilanga, comes from you before he introduced Grey Naava with whom they did one million, then calling Faulkner and they did faith shortly before he invited pr. Jessica Kayanja to humbly preside over the pledges.
Other notable performances came from Exodus, Noah Ndiayo, Benja Edwards, Royce, Procalim group of kids, Biracotins and General Versatile, Levixone and Daisy Ejang.
Cooper ended this worthy cause with believer, give myself away and give you one day in a second session performance.
