Sax player saves the day
Over its 41 years, the Richard Stoute Teen Talent contest has been synonymous with the vocal abilities of young Barbadians.
But last Sunday night at the fifth preliminary of the 2017 season, it was the sheer musicianship of student saxophonist Zukeli Inniss that stole the show and the hearts of many in the audience at the Divi Southwinds Resort in St Lawrence, Christ Church.
On a night that saw a relatively low-key first half from all seven contestants, the 16-year-old was able to stand out convincingly.
