The overall vision of the tour is encapsulated in the following statement: “Arise O Man (also one of the hymns in the repertoire) which is a reminder to communities of South Africa, through the ministry of music, that every man – young and old – is a unique and valued creation of God, and is encouraged to take up his rightful place in society”.
