Visionary stars in duet on Croatian tv
The three hour show was dedicated to the apparitions in Medjugorje when Croatian tv captured an episode of a popular entertainment series in nearby Citluk on Wednesday. Among nationally well-known performers, visionary Jakov Colo received standing ovations for his singing duet.
Medjugorje visionary Jakov Colo made his nationwide tv debut as a singer on October 24. Going on stage as a special surprise, he sang a duet with professional singer Ivana Kovac when Croatian tv captured an episode of the entertainment show “Across our beautiful country” in Citluk, 4 miles from Medjugorje.
The seer and the professional singer received standing ovations for their version of the song God’s Blessing, the municipality website citluk.ba reports.
The City Sports Hall in Citluk was packed for the event dedicated to the 31 years of apparitions in Medjugorje. Two shows will be broadcast later on HRT, the main Croatian tv station. A large number of singers and performers from Croatia and Hercegovina were on stage, local news portal Brotnjo Online informs.
In his welcome, Citluk mayor Ivo Jerkic said he was honored that Citluk and Medjugorje had been selected to host an episode of the popular entertainment show, with the main objective of presenting the local cultural and spiritual values. He also noted how the apparitions in Medjugorje had made the municipality world-famous and well-visited.
“The pilgrims arrive in Medjugorje on foot, and return from Medjugorje on wings” Jerkic said.
