Hundreds fly in for premier gospel concert May 2nd - May 5th

Nassau, Bahamas Paradise Island – Hundreds are attending the Radio One’s annual One Love Getaway in Nassau, Bahamas from May 2 to May 5 at the Atlantis Resort, with scores of stars in the gospel music world set to headline the event.

The One Love Gospel franchise is the premier and largest gospel event that brings together the biggest and brightest personalities from the gospel world for an inspirational and uplifting experience that transcends souls. The event is expected to be a boon to the country’s religious tourism market and assists The Bahamas’ efforts to be the lead destination for such events going forward.

For the past 8 years, the One Love Cruise enjoyed unprecedented growth and consistently delivered strong attendance numbers. Inspiration Format Director Elroy Smith said Radio One wanted to bring the One Love Cruise experience to land for 2013, with The Bahamas seen as the ideal location.

“The Bahamas is a huge destination for Americans and when we announced we were coming to Nassau the phone lines went ‘bananas’ and the response is still crazy to this very day,” said Smith. “The Bahamas is such an endearing island to many of us. We feel safe, it’s such a beautiful island and we know so many people there love the Lord and love this type of entertainment.

“When we invite these starts, there’s never a hesitation and we are excited to bring this level of star studded artists to The Bahamas.”

Local packages have been assembled giving Bahamian residents the opportunity to attend an entire day of events ranging from gospel jazz, hip-hop and general concerts to comedy shows and seminars.

It’s all a part of Radio One’s ultimate goal to make the One Love Get Away the best inspirational experience for all attendees. The concert is expected to welcome artists such as Mary Mary, Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen Group, James Fortune, Israel Houghton, Tamela Mann, Earnest Pugh, Fred Hammond And The United Tenors, Mighty Clouds Of Joy, Tye Tribett, Jessica Reedy, Lecrae, Vashawn Mitchell, Kurt Carr, Jonathan Mcreynolds, Micah Stampley, Canton Jones, Andy Minon And Jackiem Joyner Come Together For The “One Love Get Away” Presented By Radio One Inc.

Along with the “A” list entertainment, the One Love Getaway will feature inspirational workshops, seminars for singles and couples, bible study classes and will feature the” World’s Largest Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony”. Nationally syndicated radio personalities, Yolanda Adams and CoCo Brother will assist as ambassadors and hosts for the weekend.
