ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Renowned international recording gospel artiste, Carlene Davis-Cowan has promised a mixture of old and new flavour when she performs this Saturday, January 18, 2014 in the 19th Performing Arts Series of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College to be held in the Eileene L. Parsons Auditorium.

Offering a message of restoration, Carlene said that many persons have come into the New Year after having gone through some stuff in the past year. 

She encouraged persons to come with a heart of expectancy and urged that they remain hopeful that their situations would change for the better despite the circumstances they may be facing. 

The Jamaican gospel sensation, who is now on her sixth trip to the Virgin Islands (VI), offered,  “When we look back, let’s look back with a heart of gratitude rather than a heart of regret, knowing that we still have life.”  

After being diagnosed with cancer in 1996, she rededicated her life to Christ, ‘The only One I could run to’, says Carlene. 

A veteran of over 20 albums, Carlene has had a number of secular and gospel hits over the years and is currently working on her sixteenth gospel album which is scheduled to be launched by March 2014. 

She has already released several singles from the upcoming album, including Jubilee featuring Papa San and a tribute to former South African President Nelson Mandela titled Thank You Mr. Mandela. 

Having played a significant role in writing songs and lending support during the apartheid period, Carlene recalled meeting the former President during his visit to Jamaica as being a major moment for her. “We never thought that we would have lived to see the day that Nelson walked from prison, and when it happened it was sheer jubilation,” she said. 

She encouraged persons to come out to support the show and be a part of what God is doing in the Virgin Islands through the series, “Bring somebody that you know might need some encouragement, because this might be the only opportunity that they’ll have as tomorrow is not promised.”
