Ovation Carol & Awards To Paint Ghana Red On December 14

For the first time since its inception, Ovation International Magazine, Africa‟s No.1 Celebrity journal is hosting its famous ‘Ovation Carol & Awards’ in Accra, Ghana on Saturday December 14, 2013 at the State House Banquet Hall under the theme, 'it’s all about hope’. The 6th Edition of this special charity event will feature the wonderful Winneba Youth Choir (which incidentally is also celebrating its 25th anniversary). There will be star performances by artistes from Ghana and Nigeria with a top International award-winning artiste as special guest. This year, like the previous editions, will provide a platform for spreading the message of hope among Africans, donating to a charitable cause, honouring some outstanding individuals and in addition, celebrating the lives of two of Africa's greats: late Professor Kofi Awoonor and Nelson Mandela. The Ovation Carol & Awards is the largest Pan-African Concert. It is a star-studded event that will be attended by the best and brightest stars, business moguls and top-rate celebrities from across the continent.
