SOMEONE is celebrating UP THERE

Iconic kiwi gospel music label Someone Up There commemorates 21 years.

The year of our Lord two thousand and six sees Someone Up There turn 21 in classic style with a New Zealand Music Month birthday concert to be remembered.

The historic 'Tab' in Queen Street, Auckland, will accommodate over two hours of melodic retrospection on Friday 12 May. Commencing at 8:00pm, featured guests include Derek Lind, Guy Wishart, Max Jacobsen, AJ Bell, Mark Laurent and Brenda Liddiard, Jules Riding, Darlene Adair and friends.

This evening of nostalgic variety will be hosted by Rhema Broadcasting Group's Rob Holding, and is presented in association with both New Zealand's Rhema and the Southern Star radio networks, in support of the work of Tear Fund.

Someone Up There recently joined the 'stable of labels' managed by Pure Entertainment New Zealand. The Adairs say, "We are delighted the guys at Pure have picked up the Someone Up There baton. We started this baby 21 years ago and it is rewarding to see a new chapter in its history unfolding".

Pure Entertainment directors Murray Jeffrey and David Cullen are ". stoked to be working with Someone Up There artists and music.
