Acclaimed gospel singer Donald James, popularly known as Don Moen, was in town last week for a series of concerts. Born June 29, 1950, Moen is an American gospel singer-songwriter, pastor, and producer of Christian worship music.

Last week, he jetted in the country on Friday to entertain believers with heavenly messages as he portrays in his songs.
The 64- year- old performed live on Sunday at Serena Hotel’s Victoria Hall that was packed to capacity despite the entrance fee being at Shs120,000.

He later proceeded to Makerere University Sports Grounds for another show that he did alongside fellow musician, Lenny Le Blanc with a modestly packed congregation which parted with Shs30,000 per head and Shs 10,000 for students. Moen’s East African tour in Uganda climaxed at the Rubaga Miracle Centre for a worship seminar which went for Shs30,000 and the turn up was still amazing.

Hosted by Rubaga Miracle Centre Senior Pastor Robert Kayanja, Don Moen and Lenny Leblanc entertained believers with songs like God Will Make a Way, Thank you lord, how great is our God, God is Good, Here We Are, Arise, I Will Sing, and many more that threw believers into tears of joy from the lord.
