At one point, the auditorium of the Catholic Parish Hall was transformed into a dance hall, with everyone dancing and singing along to the tunes.nCecilia was the ultimate gospel star on that day. With her style of performance, she guaranteed a place in the hearts of music fans as the best Ghanaian act without a doubt. The Executive Director of RAMF, George William Dickson, noted that he decided to hunt for talent within Agona Swedru and its environs because talents in that area had not been tapped.
