Mums’ night out
Hundreds of patrons, mostly mothers, packed the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre last Sunday evening for a special Mother’s Day show – Mum, This One’s For You.
Getting things off to a grand start were the brother and sister team of Kareen Agard and Zakiya Agard, who did a well received piece, The Prayer.
Eighteen-year-old flautist Nathan Richards came on stage to serenade a number of outstanding mothers who had been rewarded for their contribution to their various parishes.
He thrilled the audience with Ave Maria and Praise My Soul The King Of Heaven.
The versatile John King delivered A Hundred Pounds Of Clay, much to the delight of the crowd. Adding some spice to the show was the organizer himself, Desmond Weekes, who did a rock and roll number that had the audience rocking.
Carolyn Leacock sang I’m Alive while Mac Fingall’s humour had the audience in stitches. Bringing a climax to the show that is now in its 20th year was Biggie Irie, who sang numbers including Cyaan Be Over. Other performers included Anderson Lynch and the Israel Lovell Dancers.
