The launch of John Fisher & IDMC Gospel Soul Choir’s ninth album took place at the High Commission of Jamaica on 21 February. Present were the Jamaican High Commissioner H. E. Seth George Ramocan, sponsors and other guests.

The High Commissioner opened the proceedings by welcoming the IDMC choir and congratulating them on their 24th anniversary and the launch of their ninth album, Hideaway Live. IDMC is a dynamic and vibrant professional gospel choir, and their performances made for an inspirational and uplifting evening. IDMC also committed to sponsoring Browns Town Health Centre in St Ann’s as part of the Adopt-A-Clinic project, for which John Foster is part of the committee.

Paul Harrison of PK Media supported IDMC with their marketing, and in his opening remarks made mention of the knife crime deaths in London, echoing a message of hope that needs to be disseminated to our young people. He spoke of hope as important to the community, who need to know we care and so can be inspired with positivity. As he looked around the room remarking on how many inspiring people had attended the launch, Harrison said, “The most powerful weapon that we have today is unity, supporting each other in love and in our charity endeavour, as with the mandate of IDMC who are spreading the good news of hope and love with the message of gospel.”

A vote of thanks was given to all the Caribbean businesses and others who came out in support of such a worthy event. Pastor White from the Tabernacle Church gave the blessing, and prayed for the success of the IDMC album.
