Local gospel artist, Kabelo Eric has been selected as part of the Indie Rock Gospel Artist Showcase at Newark, Delaware state in the United States of America (USA) to perform with a live band.

In an interview with Arts & Culture, he said the selection is an iconic recognition not only for him but also for the local gospel music to be recognised among international gospel artists.

To be selected from hundreds and hundreds entries comes as a blessing and fullness of God’s grace. This is a fifth time international recognition in my music career. I won MOMAS Award - Best Religious song in Africa in 2011 in New York. I was also nominated for best Male Gospel Artist in Africa-by-Africa Gospel Music Award in 2011 in London,” he said.
