Nail-biting finale in talent contest
There’s no better way to describe Sunday’s finale to the inaugural Richard Stoute Talent Contest for differently abled persons than thrilling.
It was a nail-biter. Plain and simple. One of the most keenly contested competitions Barbados has seen in a very long time. So much so, that even after all 16 performances on the night, I’m sure many who packed the house at the Divi Southwinds Resort in St Lawrence Gap were scratching their heads in wonderment about who would be named the eventual winner.
The competition saw eight contestants, who suffer from physical and visual challenges, blow everyone away with their fantastic talent and skills.
At the end though, it was calypsonian Granville Carter that emerged as the best of the best and he walked away with bragging rights, a huge trophy and $2 000 cash for his efforts. (SDB Media)
