The "2014 king's Praise" was graced by an awesome congregation who supported the event with splendid clapping, loud cheering, inevitable dance and sweet voices singing along each familiar song. The event was categorized into music, drama, individual performances and choreography all performed by the OEC students and invited guests. Hearts were lifted up in melody as the 1st package raised eyebrows. The rest of the packages were interspersed by a powerful choreography (mime) which heated the house. Other packages continued as individuals mounted the stage to express their eagerness to exhibit praise in grand style. Indeed, the king was praised through music, dance and choreography aided by a wonderful team of instrumentalists, technical team, choristers, choreographers and congregation and we express our warmest gratitude to OEC who supported us to secure a wonderful place for the program.
