Fond farewell to singer Norma

Social Share

Norma Stoute was heralded as one of the pioneers of the music industry in Barbados.
And the entertainers and friends of her era came out in full support to pay final respects to her as she was laid to rest in the St Leonard’s Anglican Church graveyard after a service at the church.
Norma Stoute, 76, who eventually became Stoute-Holder after her marriage, was eulogized by her daughter Judy Bulaya “as a beautiful woman who had a smile that lit the whole world up”.
She said that her mother’s singing talent was always recognized and it became widely known after she entered a talent competition at the then Globe Theatre. She won after singing A Tisket A Tasket by America singer Ella Fitzgerald. (JS)
