St Joseph win Spirit of the Nation show
ST JOSEPH retained the title of Most Outstanding Parish Ambassadors at the 2013 edition of the Spirit of the Nation show last night at the Wildey Gymnasium.
The parish was ably represented by Rico Bradshaw and Reshida Smith, who were both leaders in the preliminaries and clear crowd favorites. Their attendant, Antoinette Clarke, also received the prize for Attendant of the Year.
St Peter had to settle for first runner-up, represented by Kadeem Bullen and Denesa Leslie. St George’s Reuel Bourne and Tamara Bailey copped second runners-up, while Christ Church representatives Anthony King and Shanique Trotman were third runners-up.
The youthful, energetic Reactive Dance Group out of St Michael won the Spirit of the Nation award for its parish talent, Culture of Barbados.
Budding sax player Kieshelle Rawlins of St George earned second place for her performance of Yahweh and St Joseph songbird Leteisha Whitney came third with her rendition of Caribbean Unity. (LW)
