Nova Scotia Mass Choir
The Nova Scotia Mass Choir is a multicultural, award-winning, community gospel choir. This year, the choir is marking its 25th year of singing for racial harmony and peace.

The Nova Scotia Mass Choir has produced three CDs – He Never Failed Me Yet, Heaven, and most recently, in 2016, Immanuel.

In 2017, the Nova Scotia Mass Choir won the African Nova Scotian Music Association’s Artist/Group of the Year Award. The choir has also won numerous other awards over its 25-year history, including two East Coast Music Association Awards for Gospel Group of the Year (2000) and Blues/Gospel Group of the Year (1997). In 2014, the choir was the recipient of a Nova Scotia Human Rights Award.

Other highlights of the choir’s years together include:
• The African Nova Scotian Music Association recognized the Nova Scotia Mass Choir for Best Live
Performance (1998), Best Gospel (1999) and a Heritage Award (2011).
• Two seasons on national television in a thirteen-part series “Hallelujah” on CBC and Vision TV
• A performance at the Southern Christian Leadership Convention in Dallas, Texas in 1995

The Nova Scotia Mass Choir is under the musical direction of Owen Lee.

Keonté Beals
Keonté Beals hails from a diverse musical background. From Jazz, Smooth R&B and Soul, to the grit of Hip Hop and the fiery flares of Gospel. Keonté is capable of giving a high energy show infused with a mixture of bright, up-beat tempos and spine tingling belt worthy R&B.

One8tea Ministries
One8tea (Pronounced 180) is a hip hop artist from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now living in Moncton, New Brunswick with his wife and children he is as a member of Kingdom Music led by 2x Grammy nominee Fresh IE. One8tea is a multiple Covenant Award winner and ECMA nominee.

Cyndi Cain
Exercising her powerful set of pipes since the age of three, the Halifax-based soul singer and songwriter has been a performer for her entire life. From belting out gospel songs as a little girl at church to treating Club Med crowds in Florida, Mexico and the Dominican Republic to Motown hits and familiar show tunes, Cain—who, unsurprisingly, has a background in musical theatre— knows how to own a crowd.

One of the East Coast’s greatest soul singers, she’s already collected an African Nova Scotia Music award and an East Coast Music Award nomination and been named a Galaxie Rising Star. And this star knows no limits. She’s shared stages with Michael Bublé, Dutch Mason, Symphony Nova Scotia and Charles Bradley, delivering high-powered, passionate and confident performances no matter the audience or setting. With Soul Food, the follow-up to 2009′s Essentially Cyndi, Cain brings another dose of music you can feel from your fingers to your toes.

Sanctified Brothers
The Sanctified Brothers are a booming Men’s soul gospel group from North Preston Nova Scotia and has a long tradition of fantastic Gospel music. The Sanctified Brothers, formerly known as The Deep River Boys, have quickly established themselves as one of the best groups in Canada. Many have performed and been members of award-winning groups such as The Gospelheirs and The Hallelujah Praise Choir and have performed with Rita MacNeil.
