Four in from north zone
Another year of Independence means another year of celebrations to go with it.
Once again the Community Independence Celebrations district competitions are upon us, and recently the north zone’s, Northern Explosion took place at the Queen’s College.
Though many talented youth graced the stage, only four qualified to go on to represent their parish at the Spirit Of The Nation Show set to be held on November 22.
From St Peter the young duo Nakeem & Naheed earned their place with their singing performance of Pharell’s Happy. From St James, The Haynesville Youth Group showed their dancing prowess, while St Andrew saw the ever popular Orville Blackman progress with his song Christians In The Dancehall. Rounding off the northerners was St Lucy’s Saskia Sighn, who did an exceptional piece of poetry entitled Little One, along with a singing performance.
The event also featured guest performances by Reactive Dance Squad, Deneko, Sunshine Chicas, G-Syndicate and Pic-O-De-Crop monarch Ian Webster. (SM)
