Halfway through her concert she invited the speaker of parliament, Rebecca Kadaga
Having veered of the music lane to join politics, Judith Babirye's Friday concert affirmed she did not go forever. She returned to her status as queen of gospel music.
Onto a beautifully designed stage, Babirye appeared in a shimmering red winged ensemble and launched into a sparkling performance to a fully-packed house that seemed fired up by every song she sang. The energy was there, especially when the big hits like, Mama and Ndikulinda were played.
Halfway through her concert she invited the speaker of parliament, Rebecca Kadaga (guest of honor) who as expected showed off her dance moves inciting a thunderous applause. Kadaga is famous for her Paka Chini strokes.
Kadaga said she thought parliamentary work would compel Babirye to drop the microphone, but she has proved she can juggle both.
If anything, Babirye's concert was to send signals that she is still singing.
Musicians, Levixone, Renah Nalumansi, Joy Tendo, Pastor Wilson Bugembe and a host of others also wowed the crowd. Bugembe almost stole the show.
