Port-Harcourt Born Singer Leads National Anthem at Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party

The Party at the Palace was the grand finale of the four-day celebration of the platinum reign for the Queen of England, Elizabeth II. The pomp and pageantry was televised around the globe with twenty-two thousand in attendance at the venue. Port-Harcourt born singer James Numbere leading the London Community Gospel Choir performed two songs and conducted the singing of the national anthem on the august occasion.

On his IG page @jamesnumbere, shared about his out-of-body experience. “SPEECHLESS!! Singing for the Queen and the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace to close the Platinum Jubilee Celebration. Not only singing but conducting the National Anthem while the Queen stood there. This little boy from PortHarcourt Nigeria. Thank you for believing in me. I lack words now so I’ll just go to bed and wake up to see if this was a dream”

To understand how profound this historic moment was for the singer we need to go back in time, to November 2021. In this fateful month the gospel artiste released his EP ‘A Tale of 2 Cities’. This is the same title of a famous Charles Dickens novel which was set in Paris and London. The album was actually a partnership with James and his artist friends based in the cities of Port-Harcourt and London.    

“I do not believe in coincidences. One of the main reasons for this was to showcase Port-Harcourt, Rivers State and Nigeria to and the world. Now look at how God has amplified it all
Port-Harcourt to the world indeed.”

We’re pleased that once again Nigeria has again made positive headlines around the world. The limelight shone on gospel music with Nigerian born James Numbere as the ambassador has done the genre and nation proud. Listen and enjoy the album that foretold of the momentous event.
