Supergospel it was when the Silvertones Of Barbados and American Vincentian guest star evangelist Bridget Blucher, supported by other Bajan artistes, took to the stage last weekend.

The two-day gospel music project began at Whitepark Tabernacle last Saturday night, with worship leader, soloist and musical director Allison Norville-Forde in one dynamic presentation.

She did two solo pieces, coming back later to join host group Silvertones in their opening act – a tribute to veteran gospel singer Joseph Niles. The audience was carried down memory lane with such Niles hits like Walking Up The King’s Highway, This Train and Chariots.

Coleridge & Parry School, represented by four students, gave an inspiring performance with a medley that included Lord, Prepare Me.

Double Laugh Theatre added variety to the evening as Jennifer Walker and Yolanda Holder, using humour, sent a serious message to the church on how it should treat its members infected with HIV/AIDS.

Bridget Blucher, the star of the evening, did not disappoint. She ministered in song with such favourites as I’m Still Here, Strength and He Called Out My Name.

Also appearing were saxophonist Ricky Niles, Narrowway Dance Ministry, First Baptist Chorale and soloist Everdene Smart.

Harold Britton, founder of the Silvertones, was given an award for his “sterling contribution over the last 30 years” to the group. (RL)
