Others to perform at the event were Higher Calling with Ukubokokwenu, Blessed Brothers with "Sunkako", Millie Chama with "Wilaba Lesa" and Trinity Ambassadors whose track "I love you Jesus" rounded off the praise song session.

In no time the moment that everyone was waiting arrived as a joyful Sife took to stage first with her maiden hit "Filankonka" which sent the crowd into wild cheers.

Sife then gave a brief testimony of her life back-ground before singing "Wonderful" and "Come live with us" two songs that caused the audience to lift up their hands in worship leading to the close of Sife's performance for the evening.

However the event was not going to be complete without a performance from another one of Zambian gospel music fans favourite Karen who was in town to unleash her remixed "The Best of Karen" album.

Nilesafye and Napapene were the two songs performed by Karen whose appearance rounded off proceedings.

Thus the evening came to a close with everyone in attendance knowing too well that their hearts were ready to celebrate the birth of the savior Christ.
