It’s Small’s world
The finals of the BAPPS Inter-School Singing Competition ended on a Hallelujah note as an emotional Jane Small, representing St James Secondary, took the winning prize at Combermere School Hall two Saturday nights ago.
Winning the competition with her powerful rendition of the song – you guessed it – Hallelujah, Jane was presented with $500 cash, a trip to New York, lunch for two at Bubba’s Restaurant, and the Robyn Rihanna Fenty Trophy.
Second place prize went to Du-Wayne Hinds, of Foundation Secondary School, who also came first in his zone. He received $300 cash and lunch for two at Bubba’s Restaurant for his rendition of Ordinary People.
Samantha Sammy G Greaves, of The Alleyne School, won third prize with her performance of Die With My Dignity, which she prefaced with a short skit performed with current calypso monarch David Popsicle Hall.
Fourth place and fifth place prizes went to Shenise Marshall, of The St Michael School, and Adela Payne, of Lester Vaughn School, with their respective renditions of Beautiful And Unspoiled and Turning Tables.
