There was plenty fun, food and laughter when staff at Barbados TODAY got together last Saturday night at the Sugar Ultra Lounge in St. Lawrence Gap.
It was a night when the singers, and those who think they can sing, took up the karaoke mic and belted out tunes much to the “delight” of the others who were not brave enough to try.
Between the tasty food and the cold drinks, beer and wine, conversation centred around anything but work and stopped when the singers emerged.
Recording artist Emmanuel Joseph showed colleagues and other patrons that he had not lost his golden voice when he sang You Are So Beautiful, while Sub-Editor Kamilah Cadogan, accompanied by freelance reporter Chan√t Morris and her friend Danielle Seale, showed that she knows more than how to plan pages when she sang the Spice Girls song Wannabe. Kamilah also tackled Umbrella by Rihanna and Jay-Z, doing both the rap and ballad parts, which left everyone in stitches.
The stars of the night were without a doubt Sports Coordinator Wade Gibbons and Reporter Kimberley Cummins who had one practise session of I’ve Got You Babe during the week. It went well although Wade kept Kimberley in tune.
Kimberley sang a number of songs but it was her rendition of I Will Always Love You that will long be remembered by everyone. She was that unforgettable – hitting the high notes and all.
Photographer Christoff Griffith was a riot! His attempt to sing Beat It by Michael Jackson while moon walking was well received and he clearly enjoyed himself on stage and the Gangnam Style dancers were also a hit.
The night out was a great way to release the stress and fatigue that came from those long days during the recently concluded election campaign, and unfortunately it ended too soon.
The question was: When’s the next night out? (DS)
