Tillian tops singing competition
WITH A SMOOTH singing voice and vocals befitting an experienced singer, Tillian Whittaker took the top spot last weekend at the annual Sheryl Hackett Memorial Inter-House Singing Competition.
Representing Arnold House at the Alexandra secondary school, Whittaker, who sang Mercy Said No, looked confident on stage during her performance and captivated the entire audience with her rendition.
Ashawnya Bellamy of O’Neal House placed second after singing Yet Still I Rise. She too showed confidence through her performance although she had trouble with some of the lyrics.
Placing third and fourth respectively were Romario Cave of Arnold House and Asha Goddard of Lysons House. Romario sang Can’t Be My Lover and Asha sang Up Against All Odds.
Ten contestants vied for the Sheryl Hackett Prize, each of whom received a trophy for their participation. They were presented by Alexandra school principal Jeffrey Broomes.
The modest crowd was reserved in their responses, with an occasional outbust for Whittaker and Bellamy, who were the obvious favourites.
Guest performances included the Adrenaline Dancers, Redd Man, and the Legend Band. (DB)
