They sang an ad-hoc version of Chris Tomlin’s song ‘How Great is our God’. In the middle of the coterie were people playing stringed instruments, singers and dancers to boot.
“We have lived through a tumultuous time last week. Amidst everything, people feel overwhelmed and uncertain. On Sunday, 18 July 2021, also the day we commemorate Nelson Mandela, community members approached The Glen and requested permission to pull the community together through song in the centre,” Prianka Singh, part of the Centre management, said to us.
“The Glen was more than happy to assist the community and proud to be a part of the initiative,” Singh added.
