Artistes give Stoute treat
FOR THOSE FORMER participants present at the Barbados Hilton Resort, Needhams, St Michael, on Sunday night, the launch of the 40th anniversary of the Richard Stoute Teen Talent contest was not only an opportunity to rekindle old friendships but also to applaud and thank the man behind the show – veteran entertainer Richard Stoute.
It was a time for tears, cheers, praise and much hugs as former winners, past contestants and long-time supporters from across four decades were reunited.
The night opened with a sterling tribute to Stoute by past Over 21 contestant Elroy Tiger Brathwaite, this led the way to rousing tributes in song from the inimitable Shirley Stewart, Betty Payne, Barry Chandler, Lauri-ann Caines, Bianca Boyce, Christine Carter, Darren Mccollin, Crystal Austin, Shadia Marshall, Taneisha Alleyne, Phil Brathwaite, Wayne Daisley, Callie, Michael Streaks, Kim Sealey and Ray Armstrong.
