Ooberfuse song tribute as World Youth Day nears

London band Ooberfuse has penned a track for this year’s World Youth Day in Panama.

On the eve of the largest global youth gathering on the planet, the band – made up of singer Cherrie Anderson and musician Hal St John – will release the new composition inspired by the World Youth Day’s headline theme – ‘I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word’. (Lk 1:38).

The band will be representing the UK at the festival later this month, which will host youth from across the globe.

Ms Anderson told The Catholic Universe: “It is a truly unique occasion when people from all around the world gather in one place united by a common purpose – the desire to find and live within a supernatural dimension that is often drowned out by the noise of modern life.

“When we silence the noise and tune in to divine frequencies we discover our true capabilities and find the courage to live life to the full.”

Mr St John added: “The organisers chose January to avoid the rainy season. While it may be dry at this time of year, blessings will be outpouring.

“So many people gathered in one place to connect with the things that really matter – the world will be transformed by this overpowering force of positive energy.”

Ooberfuse will be playing in World Youth Day Panama on Thursday, 24th and Friday, 25th January.
