Musi-Care, an annual 12-hour gospel music concert conducted by Jollee Abraham, has reached a milestone. It completed twelve years, when Jollee and his team and his guest-musicians got together once again for the concert recently.

As usual, celebrity performances including keyboardist Stephen Devassy, flute player Kamalakar and sitarist Robert, enthralled the audience. Shyam Joseph and his choir were also in attendance. Notable performances by Jollee's team included a rendition of ‘Adi Pidha Kumaran' by Jollee and his daughter Reshma Abraham and the Malayalam song ‘Gnan Ninnae Kaividumo' by Reshma. Director Prabhu Solomon of “Mynaa” fame spoke at the event.

Musi-Care Cultural and Charitable Trust — which conducts this annual event — continued with its practice of dispensing aids to the less fortunate and physically challenged members of society. Sewing machines, tricycles, four-wheeler carts, fish carts and grinders were given away. School fees and medical aid were also distributed.
