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. His selection came about following a call by the Gospel Choice Music Awards (GCMA) for Indie Rock Gospel Artist Showcase.

He explained that the work that he submitted is the YouTube video links' popular song dubbed ‘Rato La Hao Jeso'. “Three months later, I received an email of selection from the award committee that from entries submitted from across the globe, I have been selected to form part of the showcase to perform with a live band. 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.
