It was a night of 14 exciting performances, showcasing the array of talent from within these 166 square miles. The ladies were simply fantastic. And the youngest ones within the group surely stood out, showing there is hope for the music industry’s future on the island.

Fazeena Bassaet, just 13 years old but with a powerful voice, brought the house down and some audience members to their feet with her rendition of Fight Song. Her voice was smooth as silk and she was confident on stage.

Overall, all the ladies should be commended for an excellent job.

Producer, Ebonnie Rowe, should take a bow for her continued great work with the ladies year after year. This year, they received sound words of wisdom from Grammy award winning songwriter, Angela Hunte. She shared many stories with the ladies, encouraging them along the way.
