Moved to tears
THE OUTPOURING OF LOVE for Terry “Mexican” Arthur during a concert held in his honour on Saturday night was palpable and genuine.
Some of the country’s top entertainers came together with dancers, singers and contestants in this year’s edition of Miss Single And Progressive Meets The Perfect Gentleman Show for a night of great performances, demonstrating how much the 48-year-old steel pannist and former musical director of the band Square One means to them and Barbados.
As they paid tribute to Mexican and related the moments they spent with the man behind the Love Day Project, the entertainers reinforced the need to tell people how they are appreciated while they are still living.
Flanked by organiser and producer of the show, Sherry Crichlow (left), and reigning Miss Single And Progressive Tamika Newton, Arthur was so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love that he was moved to tears.
It was not the first or last time for the night either. He also cried when he said “thank you” to everyone, including his family who attended. (GBM)
