Their message is one from “out of this world”.Yes, it’s not kaiso time as usual in the Ultimate Tent, where admission remains free. Calypsonians there are dishing out a message of truth and righteousness and condemning all forms of sexual immorality, including promiscuity, male homosexuality, lesbianism, fornication and adultery. If you can’t take the heat you won’t want to be in this tent, located at The Village Gate, next to the Netball Stadium. For certain, you won’t stay in your seats for too long. You’ll dance, raise your hands, scream, shout and ask for more as each singer leaves you with much food for thought.Last Thursday, the calypsonians, all members of Love and Faith Church, performed brilliantly before an enthusiastic crowd.First on stage was Jael with Good Woman, followed by Stop Blaming De Guyanese – a must-hear song, performed by Dragon Slayer, who will face the judges in a couple weeks’ time.The sweetness of praise was borne out in  Big Rock’s Praze Realm, while ten-year-old Little Star pleaded with her audience Don’t Behave So.One person to watch in this tent is Hee Haw, with his songs Christian Nation and Show Yuh Face.The former song speaks about the hypocrisy of some Christians and the decline in morality among Barbadians. It also denounces the “bad girl” lifestyle of Rihanna.Zulu’s Time To Party and Jump by Testimony will also leave you begging for more.Why bother to go to the gym when you can energise yourself with Dragon Slayer’s Energy?Young and old walked to the front of the stage during this selection, jumping, dancing, waving and exercising. Both Energy and Jump will bring you to your feet.A significant item on this tent’s menu is the Thoughts, Voices Mindsets skit, which depicts how thoughts are planted in our minds and develop into mindsets to distract and confuse. Set in a classroom, it’s sure to be an eye-opener.The second half of the night produced other highly rated songs, such as Real Man by Dragon Slayer, which speaks against same-sex relations, and also Show Fuh Face and Ah Feeling by Hee Haw, both of which could easily place him high in the competition, when he goes before the judges in Cave Shepherd’s All Stars tent this Thursday.Performer Tracy vowed not to free up her body, in her song Never Gonna Give Up, while Jael promised to jump – in the Holy Ghost, of course – with We Jumping.Testimony finished the night with Holy Ghost Wave – a song about rejoicing before the Lord.The Ultimate Tent continues on July 16 at The Village. It’s last opening night will be on July 22, at Divi Southwinds.
