THE SOUNDS OF THE SEASON rocked the town tonight, during the second annual staging of Crop Over in the City.
The event was hosted by the Royal Barbados Police Force, in conjunction with the National Cultural Foundation and was held in Independence Square. The Police Force band prepared the growing crowd for a night of sizzling performances earlier in the evening.
The Junior Monarch eight to 12 winner Quinn P was the first out of the gate, singing Living With HIV. Chrystal Cummins-Beckles kept in the social commentary vein with last year’s One Day.
The party vibe came alive with promising soca stars Cher and Fresh, who both competed in Barbados’ Next Soca Star.
Brett and Khiomal, Yannick Hooper and Hypa Sounds, Porgie and Murda also performed and got lots of love from the audience.
The show closed out with soca heavyweights RPB, Mr Dale, Biggie Irie, Edwin Yearwood, Blood featuring Fate and reigning Pic-O’-De-Crop king Ian Webster. (LW)
