Coming together for tourism
Tourists visiting Oistins Bay Garden on Friday night got a bit more than the fish they might have been initially hoping to taste at the popular venue.
Billed as the Togetherness Concert, some of the Barbados’ young talent performed during the more than hour-long show which was the penultimate event in the activities for Tourism Awareness Week.
One of the highlights was the group Sahara, comprising Faith Hoyte, Betty Payne-Griffith and Nikki Nicole, who started and ended the show.
Their sets included Rihanna’s hits Diamonds and We found Love, Sister Sledge’s We are Family and Mariah Carey All I Want For Christmas.
Winner of this year’s Richard Stoute Teen Talent Contest, Jabarri Hurdle, was smooth. He gave Some Day at Christmas before moving into John Legend’s If You’re Out There.
Black Amour, Pedro Arthur and Nakeisha set the stage on fire with their dancing and fire eating routine and seemed to be competing with the sizzle of the nearby grills.
Darrio Prescod also performed a comedy routine while Master of Ceremonies was Consultant Hugh Foster. (DS)
