Many have been speculating if Marion Hall would return to dancehall due to several contributing factors, such as her wearing suggestive wardrobes and being booked for Reggae Sumfest. When the latter sparked criticism, the minister indicated that she was willing to reenter the genre to save souls for God.
However, the gospel singer has declared that she will never return to her dancehall moniker “Lady Saw” while delivering an energetic set in New York. The singer performed at Groovin’ in the Park at Roy Wilkins Park on Sunday and had attendees cheering as she belted out some of her popular gospel songs, including Mi Soon Alright, I Believe in God, and Room In My House.
Her enemies were also targeted during the set as she sang tracks such as Kiss Out Mi Bible and It Never Work. Not stopping there, she told them to kiss out the books of Hebrews, Matthew, Mark, and Revelations while holding a bible.
Pausing her set, she shared a testimony about the hardships she faced after her baptism in December 2015, telling the crowd, “I was almost homeless here in the US.”
At the end of her 45-minute set, Minister Hall informed her captivated audiences that she should never return to the secular world, saying, “I will never go back to being Lady Saw … but I am tough.” She also emphasised her disinterest in being the queen of dancehall again.
That was not the only speculation Minister Hall tackled at the event, as she used a song to deny rumours of her being an obeah woman.
The audience was graced with a special collaboration when pastor/singer Jabez joined her on stage, and the two delivered a powerful rendition of I Am A Warrior.
Since her baptism seven and a half years ago, Minister Hall had not graced a secular stage as grand as Groovin’ in the Park. Her upcoming performance at Reggae Sumfest on July 22 will be another big event, and the gospel singer has plans to distribute thousands of Bibles to the patrons.
Meanwhile, reigning Dancehall Queen Spice was scheduled for Groovin’ in the Park, but she unexpectedly withdrew from the event just days prior without disclosing a specific reason.
