Japanese a cappella group The Gospellers has successfully wrapped up their first ever concert in sunny Singapore! Held at the Drama Centre Theatre last Sunday — 24th September 2017, the best-selling band delighted all their local and overseas fans with their snappy melodies and seamless harmony!
The Singapore gig was a sold-out concert, with fans filling the venue until the rafters. The WOW Japan staff were pretty amazed at how coordinated the audience was at this live concert! Many of the fans in the audience knew all the Gospellers’ signature dance moves, and could groove along to many of the band’s songs.
The five-man group sang a medley of their greatest hits, such as “Towa ni” and “Hitori”. The innovative vocal group also sang some excellent covers of international tracks such as Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are”! Personal favorites from the WOW Japan staff came during the encore: “Stand By Me” and “Chikai”.
