    The Ghanaian gospel music industry has been knocking on the doorsteps of the international scene for so long that hope was waning but gladly a son of Ghana is opening the doors.

    Sonnie Badu is one of the chosen worship leaders of our time, a songwriter, composer, arranger and business man. His unique blend of intimate worship, high class visuals, and his energetic style of ushering congregations into the presence of God is affecting lives worldwide.

    On 31st of May 2010, Sonnie will share the stage once again with some of the world’s greatest gospel icons such as Donnie McClurkin, Bebe & Cece Winnans, Faith Evans, Yolanda Adams, Martha Munizzi and J Moss and many others at Wembley Arena, London, UK for this year’s Oraclez World Gospel Festival and Awards (Ceremony).

    Oraclez is described as the biggest gospel event to hit the stage in the UK and it normally attracts one of the biggest crowds in gospel music history.

    The Wembley Arena which has hosted some of world’s biggest names in music like Michael Jackson, Rihanna, ABBA and Beyoncé seats about 12,500 and it is London's second largest indoor arena after the O2 arena and third largest indoor concert venue after the O2 and Earls Court One.

    Sonnie Badu 'The Worshipper', as he is popularly known, was called by God at a very tender age. His testimony even at the age of 24 is one of struggle and triumph. He can simply be described as 'a man after Gods own heart'. His worship touches the heart of God, and an understanding that this is the one thing God cannot do for himself is what makes Sonnie a servant and a friend of God.

    Sonnie Badu is among four Ghanaians; Ohemaa Mercy, Danny Nettey and Allen and The New Wave, who have been nominated in 6 categories out of the 15 categories at these year’s Africa Gospel Music Awards Celebration 2010 schedule to take place in London on July 10. The awards is the first in what organisers say will be an annual event and comes after the huge success of ‘Ultimate Praise Africa Concert’ held in 2009.

    Sonnie Badu is leading the pack with 4 nominations in 3 categories namely; Best Song of the Year (with two songs), Best Album and Video of the Year. He is also billed to perform at the awards night alongside some of the Africa’s finest gospel artistes.

    In 2009 alone Sonnie Badu won five awards including Best Gospel Act UK, 2009 at the Black Entertainment, Film, Fashion, Television and Arts (BEFFTA) awards and Europe Best Gospel Artist, 2009.

    Sonnie Badu last year trilled his Ghanaian gospel music addicts to what many described as the most successful gospel concert of the year - Ghana worships with Sonnie Badu. The success of that concert had many calling for a second edition. Hopefully, organisers say plans are far advanced for that concert.
