Performance at Church Windrush Celebration Goes Viral on TikTok

Almost 100,000 people have viewed a video of reggae gospel artist, Sister Moveta, performing at a Windrush street party celebration organised by Brixton Community Church and led by Bishop Eric Brown.

The NTCG church, well-known in the area, hosted the street party on June 24 and afterwards attended a civic service organised by the Brixton Project. A wide range of dignitaries attended the service, including the Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Sarbaz Barznji; Detective Chief Superintendent Sebastian Adjei-Addoh; and Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy.

During the street party, people enjoyed food, interviews and a display featuring items representing the Windrush era.

However, it’s Sister Moveta’s performance that is causing a social media storm. She sang church choruses that were popular with the Windrush Generation. The TikTok audience loved Sister Moveta’s performance and comments on her post include:

Love this. Wish I was there.

This sounds so good.

Me love dis. My eyes full a tears. God is good.

Bishop Eric Brown is proud the church was able to host a party in honour of the Windrush Generation. He said:

Our street party brought together a good mix of citizens from across Lambeth to celebrate the Windrush Generation. With singing, dancing, eating, laughter and much more, we celebrated that great generation. We, their descendants, are in a better place because of their suffering and sacrifice. Their fight for a just and equitable society is still ongoing, and we will continue the fight until victory is won.
