Popular American gospel artist Nicole C Mullen says she loves Zimbabwe and was honoured to be invited back at this year’s Crossline Music Worship Festival. The “My Redeemer” singer is expected to perform at the three-day festival which starts on August 24 and ends on the 26th in the Harare Gardens.

“During our last two visits in Zimbabwe we felt welcome, we worshipped God as one people and the Victoria Falls were breathtaking!” she said. 

This will be her third visit to Zimbabwe after her past performance last year when she came together with her family including her parents. “We are honoured to be invited back again,” she said in an interview.

The festival will open on August 24 with the main act being Pastor Herman Chimusoro of Crossline Music and Video.  Mullen will take to the stage on August 26. 

The curtain will come down on the festival with a must-attend performance by another top American gospel singer — Michael W Smith. The Grammy Award-winning Smith will be performing in Zimbabwe for the first time and it is hoped that some fans will come from Botswana, Zambia and South Africa.
