Sing Out gives thanks for 40 years

Social Share

MEMBERS of Sing Out Barbados, their relatives and friends celebrated the group’s 40th anniversary yesterday afternoon at a “church service with a difference”.
Held at All Souls Anglican Church in Bank Hall, St Michael, under the theme Celebrating Life’s Gifts With Thanksgiving, the event began with a lively performance of the song Woyaya by the group.
Sing Out Barbados also give the packed church a taste of what had made them popular across the island since their first performance in 1970. The songs they offered included the well known Emmerton and John Brown.
And as they navigated the church’s aisles, Sing Out encouraged the congregation to sing along in a gospel medley.
Group director Keith Squires offered “praises to the Almighty God for all the blessings he has bestowed on this group through its trials and tribulations”.
Squires said Sing Out Barbados was started in August 1970, after an inspirational visit from Sing Out Jamaica.
“Since then, the men and women of Sing Out Barbados have sought to promote folk music and other genres of music as best as they could throughout the years,” he added. (AH)
